      Tip Reasoning

      Charlton are winless since August and the pressure is beginning to build on manager Guy Luzon. He’ll have been encouraged by the spirit his side showed to score twice in the last 10 minutes and earn a draw at home to Fulham last time out but he won’t have been as impressed by some of the defending his side showed in that game and others before it.

      They’d lost 4 in a row prior to that so it was an important point to stop the rot but they’ve conceded 13 goals in their last 5 fixtures and away to an in-form Reading side, you can only really see that record getting worse.

      The Royals have won their last 3 Championship matches including an excellent 2-0 win at home to title favourites Middlesbrough last time out. Goals from Daniel Williams and Nick Blackburn, who has scored in all 3 of those wins and is the joint top scorer in the division, ensured the success and it leaves Reading in 3rd place just 2 points below Boro.

      Reading are much improved on last season when their impressive FA Cup run interfered with their league form a little bit and look well equipped to make a more serious challenge this season.

      They are scoring freely and only 3 sides have better goalscoring records than them so at home to a Charlton side who have been awful at the back of late, you have to fancy them to win by 2 or more goals and they are good value to do that at 13/10.

      Reading have the joint best defence in the league and if they get ahead, you can’t see them allowing Charlton back into the game in the same way that Fulham did last week.

      They’ve only conceded twice at home in the league so far this season, while Charlton have only scored 3 times on the road and are yet to win. Therefore a routine 2-0 victory for the hosts is surely worth backing at 5/1.
