Nelson Oliveira has recovered from a hamstring injury and could make a push to get a place in the starting line up as Reading travel to the KCOM Stadium to take on Hull City this afternoon.

Despite the Portuguese forwards return to fitness, manager Jose Gomes could choose to stick with the starting eleven that beat Preston last weekend, which means opting for Yakou Meite to lead the line, who scored in the win at the Madejski last Saturday.

The Royals have won three of their last five games, and now find themselves in 19th place, four points clear of the drop zone, so will be looking to continue their good form against former manager Nigel Adkins’ side.

Hull captain Markus Henriksen could return to the team for the hosts as he has missed the last two games through suspension. However, Hull did beat bottom of the table side Ipswich 2-0 last weekend so Adkins could choose to name an unchanged side for them also.
