All you need to know as we haul up to Humberside this weekend...
Hull City vs Reading
Saturday 13th January 2018
Sky Bet Championship
East Yorkshire is the venue for the Royals this weekend as Jaap Stam's men take on Hull City at the KCOM Stadium.
Former Royals boss Nigel Adkins has recently taken the reins on Humberside, with his new club sat four points and three places behind Reading in the standings prior to the weekend's fixture.
The Royals have been buoyed by the return to training of Liam Moore and Jón Daði Böðvarsson, after both were ruled out of last week's FA Cup tie at Stevenage through injury and illness respectively.
The sides drew the reverse fixture 1-1 at Madejski Stadium in September, after Böðvarsson scored his first home goal to equalise late on that afternoon.
Both teams are in need of three points in the Championship, and will be going all out to earn them at the KCOM on Saturday. Come on URZ!
Supporters will be able to buy tickets on the day of the game from the away supporters bars located at the north side of the stadium for the same price.
We have an allocation of 817.
Hull City have a ticketing policy of no different age bands and price tickets based on the block location.
Our initial allocation is situated in Block N6 and N7 of the North Stand and will be priced at £18 per ticket.
"We're working hard every day. We've got a period of games where we're playing one a week so we've got time to work with the gaffer and as a team, as a unit." - More from @VitoMannone88 here: https://t.co/ce5gLcCAGU pic.twitter.com/4vr2DHDEkS— Reading FC (@ReadingFC) January 11, 2018
"Hull is a big club, they're in the same position as we are so they need to fight really hard for the points as well, so we can expect a very motivated side" - More from Jaap here: https://t.co/5D6RqFYCPd pic.twitter.com/pdSeUuww3i— Reading FC (@ReadingFC) January 11, 2018
Having taken home December's Goal of the Month award, Yann Kermorgant is available at 13/2 to open the scoring at the KCOM.
He has been back in training after a minor knock that ruled him out last week, and Liam Moore is a 9/1 shot to score any time on Saturday afternoon.
For the first time this season, Darren England will be the man in the middle as the Royals take on Hull City this weekend.
He has already officiated the Tigers this campaign, in their 1-1 draw at home to Sunderland. He has averaged four yellow cards per match this season, and has brandished the red card twice.
England will be assisted on the day by Mark Dwyer and Paul Hodskinson, with Sebastian Stockbridge as fourth official.
