Hull City travel to the Madejski Stadium tomorrow to face Reading and will be looking to bounce back from their 2-1 defeat to Wigan Athletic on Tuesday. Here is a predicted starting XI-

GK- David Marshall- The Scottish international has been their first choice goalkeeper this season and will keep his place between the sticks.

RB- Eric Lichaj- He has been a solid player for the Tigers since his summer switch from Nottingham Forest.

CB- Tommy Elphick- The Aston Villa loanee will be looking to tighten up City’s backline.

CB- Reece Burke- Jordy de Wijs started against Wigan on Tuesday but I think Nigel Adkins will mix it up again against Reading and bring Burke back into the back four.

LB- Stephen Kingsley- The ex-Swansea City defender has started every game in this campaign so far.

RM- Jarrod Bowen- The 21-year-old has scored two in his last two games and will be hoping for another tomorrow.

CM- Markus Henriksen- The Norwegian international, who is the captain of Adkins’ side, will keep his place in the starting XI.

CM- Jackson Irvine- With Daniel Batty still out injured, Irvine is likely to start in central midfield ahead of Kevin Stewart.

LM- Todd Kane- Kamil Grosicki and David Milinkovic are other options for left-midfield but Adkins will probably start Kane tomorrow. The Chelsea loanee will be fresh after being on the bench against Wigan.

ST- Frazier Campbell- Adkins is likely to go for two up front again and Campbell, who was replaced by Nouha Dicko on Tuesday, could start.

ST- Chris Martin- He will be looking for his first goal for the Tigers.
