Reading vs. Hull City

Madejski Stadium

22nd January 2011

Hull (H) Match Preview

Less than a month after a 1-1 draw at the KC Stadium, the Royals welcome Hull to the Madejski Stadium in what promises to be an exciting game.

Liam Rosenior and James Harper will return to the Mad Stad and we could see Ivar Ingimarsson's first home appearance in over 10 months.

A full match preview is here...

Vital Quotes:

Mikele Leigertwood -

'Since signing on loan the results have been good and I want that continue. It`s still quite nerve-wracking to come to a new place of work, but everyone has been top class.'


Brian McDermott on his selection head aches -

'We have to pick two centre-backs for tomorrow. Ivar came in last week and did really well, as you would imagine, and the fact that he has been out for such a long time shows just how much of a pro he is.'

Reading Team News:

The Royals have doubts over Noel Hunt and Jem Karacan for the game against Hull after both were forced off last weekend with slight knocks. Simon Church and Jay Tabb stand by to replace them if they don't make it.

Matt Mills and Zurab Kizhanishvili are both fit after missing the trip to Doncaster but may have to be content to sit on the bench.

Sean Morrison and Brett Williams are unlikely to feature after signing this week due to lack of match fitness. Morrison has not trained for a week prior to the move whilst this is Williams first stint in the professional game.

Player to watch: Ivar Ingimarsson

Long serving defender is finally back to full fitness and was outstanding last weekend. If he keeps his place he will need to keep performing like that if he stands any hope of a new contract at the end of the season.

Hull City Team News:

Liam Rosenior returns from suspension to make a return to the Madejski Stadium, whilst Paul McShane is also back from a shoulder injury.

On loan Manchester United youngster Corry Evans is hoping to make his debut whilst Jimmy Bullard and Jay Simpson will hope for a recall.

Player to watch: Matty Fryatt

Striker was linked with the Royals but opted to move to Hull at the start of the transfer window. Will be looking to score the goals in the second half of the season to move the tigers up towards the play off places.

Last Meeting

December 28th 2010, Hull 1-1 Reading

Match Prediction:

A tough game, they always are, but at home I fancy us for 3 points. 2-1 with Long and Church to score.

Next Fixture:

Saturday 29th January 2011, Stevenage (A) FA Cup Round 4
