Match Report:Hull City 1 Reading 0

Robbie Brady's strike ended Hull's long wait for a home goal and victory as they beat Reading 1-0 in the npower Championship.The hosts drew a blank in their opening three home matches in league and cup but finally laid that ghost to rest with a battling performance at the KC Stadium.Aaron McLean saw his early shot blocked and Brady's effort was gathered by Adam Federici as Hull pressed.Reading had a chance to test City's defence midway through the half but the usually reliable Ian Harte lifted his free-kick over everyone and out of play.The Tigers continued to press after the break and the industrious Matt Fryatt saw another powerful right-footed effort turned behind by Federici, who then punched Tom Cairney's inswinging corner clear.They then seized the advantage in the 73rd minute when Brady drilled in from 25 yards, a goal which the Royals had no response to.
