Hull City vs Reading by Hassy

Hull-City
VS
Reading
Hull City host managerless Reading at the KC stadium tonight in tonight's televised game. After going three games without a win and losing two of those matches, Hull ended a mini run of poor form with a scrappy but solid 1-0 win against Bolton on Saturday. Prior to that run of poor form The Tigers looked nailed on for a return to the Premier League with a run that saw them win five and draw on of their six league games. Saturday's win ensured that they are still in touching distance to the automatic promotion places and with Brighton dropping points last night, motivation won't be an issue for Steve Bruce's side. Hull City have been rock solid at home with seven wins and two draws from ten league games and a win tonight will see them boast the best home record in the division.

 

Hull captain Michael Dawson will miss his side's Sky Bet Championship clash with Reading at the KC Stadium on Wednesday, after limping off towards the end of Saturday's 1-0 win over Bolton.

 

Dawson suffered a knee injury which Tigers boss Steve Bruce expects to rule him out for the entire festive campaign. Alex Bruce is also ruled out with a back injury, the City manager is left with just two fit centre-halves so Harry Maguire will step up from the bench to partner Curtis Davies in the middle. Although Bruce will wish to keep changes to a minimum, he may be tempted to start with Robert Snodgrass who impressed against the Trotters after replacing the out-of-sorts Mo Diame.

 

Reading have still not appointed a manager since sacking Steve Clarke after they went on a terrible run of results. A run of one win in nine matches ended the manager's reign in charge. This run has also included four straight losses on the road which does not bode well for this evening. Caretake manager Kuhl was boosted by the return of Paul McShane, following a facial injury, in Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Preston, and he is again expected to start at one of his former clubs. Stephen Quinn, because of a knee injury, and Aaron Tshibola, owing to an ankle problem, are likely to miss out, however.

 

Hull City are in a much better state at the moment and have a squad which is far superior to Reading's. Hull City are eleven points better off than their opponent's already and have an exceptional home record in The Championship. I expect Reading to try and cancel out the hosts but in Clucas, Maloney, Hernandez and Akpom Hull City have some decent attacking options and I expect them to record a routine 2-0 win this evening.

I agree with this prediction. Won't write a preview as I am taking a break from the odds on selections for now. Still a bit annoyed that late Cardiff goal robbed me of four draws but I will take 3 out of 4 anyday #greedypunter.

I only noticed that Cardiff went back the other end and scored a winner this morning! Unlucky mate. 3/4 is still a top effort.

Thanks Hassy. I am still learning with the draws but I am surprised at how positive it has been...I won't get carried away though and will continue to be selective. If I wanted to write just for the sake of it I could have selected a draw here today for this game but not going to give profit back to the bookies just yet. Have at least one draw tip lined up for tomorrow and if I am confident enough on it will post it here.

The thing that actually made me look at tipping draws is where at the weekend I tipped dnb on 4 teams and 3 of those 4 teams drawn and instead of having good profit I en
