The Royals slumped to their fourth consecutive defeat against promotion chasing Hull City leaving Brian MCDermott with the unenviable task of trying to motivate a squad containing a high proportion of loan signings through the final three games of a now meaningless season. There was little incentive for the players to raise their game, and judging by the extremely poor attendance, little incentive for the home fans to turn up to watch their team. Even a bright start, including an early goal from Jake Cooper in the fourth minute, failed to lift the mood of the crowd. Reading dominated possession but two defensive lapses allowed City to come back and snatch victory with a late Robertson goal.
