Lee Bowyer’s Charlton Athletic are involved in another huge game in the EFL Championship this Saturday, as Mark Bowen’s Reading make the trip to The Valley. The Addicks, who have lost their last two, hover just above the bottom three in the Championship table. Can the home team pick up a massive three points on their own patch? We have the latest and best betting odds.

Charlton Athletic Preview – Can the Addicks seal a crucial three points on home turf?

Lee Bowyer’s Charlton Athletic looked to be on their way to a shock victory at Brentford in midweek. Macauley Bonne’s early goal put them in front at Griffin Park, but the in-form Bees hit back with two late goals to grab a 2-1 win. Prior to that, Charlton were beaten 1-0 by Millwall at The Valley.

Athletic made an excellent return to football last month by taking seven points from their first three matches. The Londoners beat Hull City and Queens Park Rangers (both 1-0) before drawing 0-0 with Cardiff City at the Cardiff City Stadium. However, back-to-back defeats has seen slip back towards the relegation zone.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

(odds taken 1510 GMT, Thursday 9 July)

Before playing Premier League chasing Leeds United on the final day, Charlton have winnable games against Reading, Birmingham City and Wigan Athletic. Three points against the Royals this weekend would definitely boost their survival chances.

Charlton have been patchy at home of late, winning three and losing three of their last six at The Valley. However, the majority of their points this season have come on home turf.

Reading Preview – Will the Royals return to Berkshire with maximum points?

Reading have had another topsy-turvy season in the second tier. After a few years of struggle, the Royals have managed to keep themselves away from danger this term. The Berkshire outfit find themselves in mid-table with four fixtures to play. Overall, they have won 14, drawn 11 and lost 17.

Last time out, Reading were held to a goalless draw by Huddersfield Town at the Madejski Stadium. However, in their previous away match, Mark Bowen’s boys put five past Luton Town at Kenilworth Road. Yakou Meite was on fire, helping himself to four goals in Luton, with George Puscas getting the other in the 5-0 romp.

Reading are a capable outfit on the road, winning three of their last five. Since winning at Cardiff in the Emirates FA Cup, Bowen’s men have picked up away league victories at Sheffield Wednesday, Birmingham and Luton. Can they add Charlton to that list at the weekend?


Charlton Athletic vs Reading Betting Advice

Reading are a very unpredictable team these days – winning 5-0 at Luton before drawing 0-0 at home with Huddersfield proves that point. On their day, Bowen’s troops are capable of beating anyone, and Charlton will certainly be wary of their threat.
