Match Preview

  • Charlton Athletic’s fine start since resumption is in tatters after falling to back-to-back defeats following an impressive run of three consecutive clean sheets. Defeat here could leave their fate out of their own hands, so Charlton must seek their third win since the restart – both victories prior ended 1-0, as have 41.67% of their league victories this season.
  • Of potential note then is that five of Charlton’s last seven home league games saw at least one side fail to score and under 2.5 goals. The first goal appears crucial then, especially as the ‘Addicks’ have picked up 27 of their 29 home points when scoring the opener.
  • A goalless draw last time out gave Reading back-to-back clean sheets for only the second time this season. Notably, ten of Reading’s 14 league victories this term have also come ‘to nil’ (71.43%).
  • Reading have conceded the opening goal in 61.90% of their away league games so far. However they did manage to recover ten of 39 possible points when falling behind on the road (W2, D4, L7), with only WBA recovering more ahead of this round.
  • Players to watch: Charlton’s Macaulay Bonne filled the void to score his ninth goal of the season last time out – each of his last seven scoring games also produced over 2.5 goals.
  • Yakou Méïté bagged four goals – including a first-half hat-trick – in their last away game, and has scored in two of his last three appearances vs bottom-four opposition (ahead of this round).
  • Stat attack: Only QPR have averaged higher than Charlton’s 1.9 yellow cards per home league game (REA: 1.9 away).
  • Charlton have averaged a league-low 4.19 corners per Championship home match (REA: 4.38 away).
  • The away side on the day has received a red card in two of the last four H2Hs (one apiece).
