Match Preview

Kilbane set to miss Royals clash Hull midfielder Kevin Kilbane is set to miss Tuesday`s clash with Reading. The Republic of Ireland international suffered a bout of concussion after a heavy challenge from Ched Evans in the 3-2 win at Sheffield United on Boxing Day and went to hospital. The blow of Kilbane`s likely absence will be softened by the return of Andy Dawson from a one-match ban, while Paul McShane was Kilbane`s replacement and he will be hoping for a start. The Tigers will definitely be without on-loan defender Daniel Ayala after he returned to parent club Liverpool following a troublesome hamstring injury. Jimmy Bullard, who scored the injury-time winner against the Blades, could be in line for a start following his first appearance since October, while boss Nigel Pearson could also be boosted by the return of Nick Barmby (leg infection) and Mark Cullen (ankle). Reading boss Brian McDermott could name an unchanged squad. The Royals were on form in a fine 4-1 home win over Bristol City on Boxing Day to climb to within a point of the play-off places and McDermott is likely to stick with the same XI if he can. Striker Shane Long took his tally to four goals in two games with a brace against City and will continue in attack alongside Noel Hunt with Jobi McAnuff and Jimmy Kebe on the wings. However should McDermott decide to freshen up his front line for a second game in three days Simon Church, Hal Robson-Kanu and Michail Antonio could all come in. Club captain Ivar Ingimarsson (hamstring) completed 90 minutes for the reserves earlier this month and the defender could be involved for the first time this season. His Icelandic compatriot Brynjar Gunnarsson (knee) is also back in training but the defensive midfielder is not expected to start.

Match Report

Chruch answers Reading`s prayers Simon Church's goal eight minutes from time helped Reading move into the npower Championship play-offs as they claimed a 1-1 draw at Hull. The substitute netted from close range after Nigel Pearson's men had failed to clear Ian Harte's free-kick. It was just reward for the Royals, who had seen a Shane Long penalty saved by Vito Mannone after Paul McShane had cynically brought down the striker. However, Hull will feel they should have claimed victory after hitting the woodwork twice through Robert Koren and Cameron Stewart. James Harper, who spent nine years at the Madjeski Stadium, had put the Tigers in front in the first half when he drilled a long-range effort past the helpless Adam Federici. That looked to be enough to seal the win, but Church ensured the spoils were shared as both sides extended their unbeaten streak to eight matches. Both teams came into the match in buoyant mood after Boxing Day wins as Jimmy Bullard's last-gasp strike gave Hull a 3-2 win at Sheffield United, while Long netted twice in Reading's 4-1 win over Bristol City. It was the hosts who started brightly and Federici had to be at his best to deny Kamil Zayatte and Koren. Jamie Devitt's near-post corner was flicked on by Zayatte and Federici did well to tip the ball round the post, while Koren's strike from the edge of the area was sharply saved. The Tigers' top scorer then beat Federici with his next strike from the edge of the box after shaking off the challenge of several Reading defenders, but this time he was denied by a post. Reading felt they should have been awarded a penalty when Noel Hunt went down under a challenge from Zayatte, but referee David Foster was not interested. Harper then put Hull in front with a wonderful goal in the 39th minute to leave the visitors feeling more aggrieved. The former Royals midfielder collected the ball and unleashed a shot from 25 yards that sailed past Federici. Stewart's deflected strike came back off a post as Hull looked to be in the ascendancy before half-time. Confusion reigned at the beginning of the second half when Andy Griffin tackled Jay Simpson on the edge of the Reading area and although Foster looked uninterested, one of his assistants flagged for a penalty. However, after almost five minutes of confusion, play resumed with a drop ball. Reading were eventually awarded a penalty in the 64th minute when McShane made a rash challenge on Long, who saw his effort brilliantly saved by Mannone, who is on loan from Arsenal. However, Mannone was at fault when Church scored a deserved equaliser in the 82nd minute. Harte's inswinging free-kick should have been dealt with by Mannone, but he only palmed the ball into the path of Church, who netted from a yard out.
