Nigel Adkins to make 5 changes – Predicted 4-2-3-1 Hull City lineup to face Reading

Predicted Hull City Lineup To Face Reading In EFL Championship

Hull City managed a morale-boosting FA Cup win at Blackburn Rovers last time out, but remain deep in trouble in the Championship after a very poor run of form culminating in a soul-destroying 1-0 defeat at Bolton Wanderers.

Ryan Mason and Abel Hernandez are of course still missing, though manager Nigel Adkins should otherwise have pretty much a full deck to pick from for the bottom half clash against Reading.

Seb Larsson may come into the midfield in place of Markus Henriksen this time but otherwise, we should see a pretty familiar line-up in a 4-2-3-1 formation:

Probable Hull City XI

GK – Allan McGregor

The ex-Rangers man remains solid, if unspectacular, and provides a decent last line of defence at the KCOM.

RB – Fikayo Timori

He’ll be needed in support of the front men out wide on the right. So look out for an all-action performance from the right-back.

CB – Michael Dawson

The former Tottenham and England man’s better days are gone, but he is still crucial to the Tigers and is sure to play this weekend.

Michael Dawson

CB – Michael Hector

The talented centre-back may partner Dawson in what needs to be a strong defensive display.

LB – Temitayo Aina

With the Tigers potentially very narrow, Aina will need to be fully fit and ready to go in order to get up and down the line on Saturday.

CM – Seb Larsson

May well come in this time given his expertise at set-pieces in what could be a tight enough match.

CM – Kevin Stewart

Solid enough in the middle of the park but will need to be switched on against a side who know how to pass the ball.

RW – Jon Toral

Did alright when on loan at Rangers but isn’t kicking on here. A good performance in a crucial game is needed this time.

Nouha Dicko

CAM – Jackson Irvine

I can’t help feeling he is a little better in a deeper role but for now, he has a crucial support role to play in creating goals for his struggling side.

LW – Jarrod Bowen

The youngster has been the shining light this season at Hull City and he will surely be given another start against the Berkshire team.

ST – Nouha Dicko

The former Wolves man has quite a job on his hands to play up front alone in this line-up and make a difference, but he does possess quality and that could come to the fore this time.
