Both teams to score at Reading vs Hull City 19/20 for Saturday’s Championship battle

Competition: Championship

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 19/20 @ 888sport

Looking to extend on what has become a remarkable run of form, Hull will make the trip to the Madejski when they face off against Reading on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, managing to find what was a real boost on their travels last weekend, there is no doubt that Reading will be desperate to build off of that result. Coming from behind away at Swansea and eventually leaving the Liberty with an action-packed 3-2 win, the Royals also managed to find some breathing room at the foot of the table. Hit with a points deduction last month and now sat just a single place above the drop zone, Veljko Paunović’s side will now be looking to improve on their recent issues at the Madejski. Including a 3-2 defeat against Blackpool, Reading have collected just a single point from any of their last four contests on home soil. Likewise, it should also be noted, Saturday’s hosts have seen three of their last four matchups finish with both teams finding the net.

As for the visitors, while Hull might have found themselves in the midst of a real Championship nightmare at the start of the 2021/22 campaign, the Tigers suddenly find themselves in the midst of a stellar purple patch. Skyrocketing their way out of the drop zone and now holding a five-point buffer over the bottom-three, the mood in Grant McCann’s camp should be at a season-high. Last seen picking up a 2-1 win against Millwall on home soil, the former Peterborough boss now finds his side enjoying a four-match winning run. Smelling the chance to cause what would be another upset on their travels this weekend, it should also be noted that Hull have claimed back-to-back away victories against Cardiff and Barnsley. In a contest that could see chances at both ends, we’re backing both teams to find the net here.
