Royals To Raid The Valley Of Three Points

Another weekend of Championship action gets underway on Saturday as Charlton Athletic host Reading in a 12:30 kick off – here is all the key information you need to know about the game ahead of the match.

The hosts will be desperate to take advantage whilst playing at home as three points could see them move a crucial step closer to avoiding relegation.

The Addicks have not enjoyed a great campaign so far as they find themselves dangerously close to the drop zone.

Lee Bowyer's men will be looking to put their season back on track after falling to a slim defeat against Brentford..

Reading on the other hand finds themselves in a mid-table position however the fact they do not have much to play for has not changed their winning motivation.

The Royals come into the game having not conceded a goal in their last two outings, scoring five goals in the process.

In their last game however, they struggled to get into their stride after seeing out a rather lacklustre game with a 0-0 draw against Huddersfield Town.

Mark Bowen will hope his side can repeat a similar result to that of their last away performance which ended up a five-nil thrashing over struggling Luton Town.

I expect the same ruthlessness that was on display against Luton to be on show against another side who can not seem to find their form.

The lack of pressure on the visitors will allow them to play with freedom which I believe will be how the game will be decided.

Score prediction: Charlton 1-3 Reading
