Preview: Reading at Home #CAFC vs #RFC

Charlton play another of the divisions better teams on Saturday in the form of Reading

The Addicks never seem to do that well against the Berkshire Club, and this season seems no better an opportunity than previous ones.


Reading boast one of the best away forms (4th) in the division and 2nd over the last 6 games. Their home form is not so good. They are nestled in 6th place and seem destined to stay there.


This presents an interesting challenge if not ideal for Charlton's Jose Riga against another top club.  The new Charlton boss added to his clean sheet tally at Leeds, with the help of Ben Hamer who saved his first penalty in some time, and Reza finally on the score sheet. He will also have one eye on rotation issues for Tuesday's match against relegation rival Yeovil which must be a more important result for the South Londoners?

Men to Watch

Readings goal threat comes from Le Fondre on 13 and Pogrebnyak on 11.


Charlton will need 1 for a draw and 2 or more for a win, so unless we've sorted that out a draw is most likely.
