Our football match prediction:
After playing out a 1-1 draw with Brentford at Griffin Park, Reading will be looking to return to winning ways in the Championship when they square off against Hull City at their Madejski Stadium. The Royals aim to escape the danger zone and Saturday’s football match could be the turning point for the hosts. Reading, though, recorded only one win in previous four league fixtures and we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on Jaap Stam’s troops. The former Manchester United defender doesn’t seem to be the right man for the job and the club chiefs should consider finding a replacement for the 45-year-old tactician. Hull City, on the other hand, played out a 1-1 draw with Sunderland at the weekend and it has to be noted that they are level on points with Reading ahead of the Madejski Stadium clash. A close encounter appears on the cards and we predict that the two teams are going to share the spoils on Matchday 9.
Highlighted Player (Jordan Obita):
Jordan Obita is a left-back who plays for Reading in the Championship. Obita is capable of playing as a winger as well and he is a left-footed player. He was born in Oxford and, as expected, he had trials with his home-town club, but he eventually signed a deal with Reading. He joined the Reading youth academy at age of 8 and he made his senior debut for the Royals on 11 August, 2010. He came from the bench in the League Cup clash against Torquay United and he made his first start against Charlton Athletic in the same competition in the 2011/2012 season. Obita spent several years on loan at Barnet, Gillingham, Portsmouth and Oldham Athletic, but he is still a Reading player. He has a contract with the Madejski Stadium outfit until 30 June. 2018. Jordan Obita has two caps for England U20 and he played for the U18 an U19 teams in the past as well. The Reading left-back was named the Player of the Season for the 2013/2014 Championship campaign.
Highlighted Team (Hull City):
Hull City are a professional football club that was founded back in 1904. The Tigers used to play their home games at Boothferry Park, but they moved to the KC Stadium in 2002. The stadium capacity is 24,450. Hull impressed in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign and, as a result, they returned to the English Premier League. Hull City fans consider Leeds United their main rivals, but Sheffield United are regarded as Hull’s fierce rivals as well. Steve Bruce took over the reins at the club in 2012 and the experienced tactician helped the team book a place in the 2013/2014 FA Cup final, but Arsenal proved to be a big catch for the Tigers in the title decider. Hull City finished the 2013/2014 Premier League campaign in 16th place in the standings to achieve their highest ever top flight finish. It has to be noted that Curtis Davies was named the team’s player of the year in the 2013/2014 season.
