The midfielder came off the bench and scored a sublime volley in midweek away at Cardiff City, for his second senior goal as helped the Royals through to the Fifth Round of the Emirates FA Cup.
With the Royals having gone the distance in midweek among the busiest run of fixtures this season, recovery has been Reading's main focus ahead of Saturday's match against the Tigers.
Mark Bowen's side go into the match in the knowledge that they can leapfrog their opponents on Saturday win as well, adding an extra incentive to take all three points.
Speaking ahead of Reading's return to the Madejski this weekend after two consecutive trips to Cardiff, Rinomhota said: "Recovery will be key, then we'll get the mindset focussed on Hull, focussed on the league and trying to move back up the table.
"You think of going above them as an extra incentive because it's almost seen as another six-point game - it stops them getting three and we get three ourselves.
"Maybe it'll be in the back of our minds, but we'll keep trying to play our own game and do what we normally do.
"There are still a lot of games to go in the league, you never know what could happen. We could go on a good run from here, and we don't know where we could finish.
"We'll keep focussed on that, and when the cup next comes around, then we'll turn back to that and hopefully progress to the next round."
