continued his fine run of form Wednesday evening to lead his Hull City side to a come back win over Reading 2-1.

The Tigers went behind early, when Reading’s Nick Blackman finished off a fantastic team move by firing his shot in the upper corner of Hull’s goal in the 29th minute. The chances were far and few between until halftime, and Hull went into the locker room down 1-0 at halftime.

The second half started off much brighter for Elmohamady’s side. Abel Hernandez should have equalized on 50 minutes, but his shot from the center of the box just missed to the left of the goal.

In the 61st minute, Hull got their equalizer, thanks largely to Ahmed Elmohamady. Sam Clucas sent a cross in front the face of goal, which a streaking Elmohamady met on a first-time attempt. His shot was saved by Reading goalkeeper Jonathon Bond, but Hull striker Abel Hernandez was the first player to pounce on the rebound, and he slotted the ball home to tie the game at one.

As the Tigers continued their second-half domination, Elmohamady almost broke the deadlock in the 78th minute. However, his header just missed the bottom corner of the net. The Tigers did eventually get their breakthrough in the 90th minute when Jake Livermore met an Adama Diomande cross past Bond to secure the 3 points for Hull City.

The win sees Hull City stay in 4th place in the Championship, but only two points behind leaders Middlesborough.
