It's a confidence game

Hopefully Tuesday night's audacious win against Leeds will give Charlton confidence as they go into another crucial Championship clash with Reading at The Valley tomorrow. Under Jose Riga, Charlton have moved up to 8th in the form table whereas Reading are 13th. However, the Royals have a good away record, indeed it is better than their record at home. On their travels they have won nine games, drawn four and lost just six.

Reading are 6th in the Championship and will want to boost their chances of securing a play off place. However, their record against Charlton at The Valley is not that good. Reading won the earlier meeting 1-0 at the Madejski Stadium in December - their only win in the last five meetings in all competitions. Charlton have won five of the last six meetings at The Valley in all competitions, drawing the other one. Reading's last win there was 2-1 in the old Division One in October 1994.

Odds are: Charlton 9/5, Draw 9/4, Reading 6/4
