Hull (A) Match Preview

Reading travel the KC Stadium on the back of three consecutive losses while Hull are still looking for their first home win of the season

Vital Quotes:

Reading boss Brian McDermott - "I just got the sense we needed to get some calm around the place. We had lost three games and we need to calm the whole thing down, start talking about football again rather than other matters. That`s really, really important. There`s been a little bit of anxiety around the place, both within the group and the supporters and I understand that. That needs to go down, we need to calm the whole thing down and do what we do best, which is the football."

Hull manager Nigel Pearson - "I have a strong belief in my players and I know that we can put it right, but we have to do it sooner rather than later we're four games into the new league season with just the one win, that being away from home, and I can understand the concerns. Having said that, I know that the players are a very good group who want to be successful themselves.

Hull Team News:

Robbie Brady has recovered from a mid-week virus while Andy Dawson is hoping to get back into the side. Paul McShane and Cameron Stewart are long term absentee's.

Player to watch: Robbie Brady

The young tricky on loan from Manchester United has already made a big impact for Hull this season and will sure to be a problem for Ian Harte and the Reading defence.

Reading Team News:

Andy Griffin is still carrying a hamstring problem so Shaun Cummings is set to continue in his place. The Royals have no other injury worries except Marcus Williams who is still carrying a knock.

Possible Starting XI: Federici, Cummings, Gorkss, Pearce, Harte, Kebe, Karacan, Leigertwood, McAnuff, Hunt, HRK

Player to watch: Kaspars Gorkss

The Latvian captain has just signed from QPR and will add experience to a shaky Royals defence
