Recent respective form guides

Hull City have only collected 1 win and 3 draws from the last six home games played. These low-scoring games have seen just 4 goals scored and conceded.

The away form of Reading however, is much more impressive, unbeaten in their last six, consisting of three wins and three draws. Just 7 goals have scored in these games, though to be fair only a measly 1 have been let in at the wrong end.
