Charlton Athletic are looking to arrest their slide down the League One table as they face Reading this weekend.
Reading currently sit 20th in League One with nine wins, eight draws and thirteen losses from thirty games this season.
The Royals are having a tough, tough campaign in England's third tier and are desperately hoping to avoid a second successive relegation amidst turmoil off the field involving a flippant owner.
They do, though, seem to be slowly turning their ill fortune around after an awful start to the season as they come into this game having lost just one of their last eleven league games while being unbeaten in their last four.
Their latest league outing saw them take a huge three points away at playoff contenders Stevenage thanks to a Stevenage own goal on the stroke of half-time.
Admittedly, Reading's long run of good form has seen them draw quite a number of games, but they've faced three of the current top six in their last four games and have taken seven points from those encounters, so on their current trajectory it's hard to see them failing to survive.
Their home form especially has been really good, with the Royals coming into this one unbeaten in their last five games on home soil having won three of their last four.
This game does, then, look like a good opportunity for Reading to claim another win.
Charlton Athletic currently sit 19th in League One with seven wins, ten draws, and thirteen losses from thirty games this season.
The Addicks have been one of the league's great underachievers as they find themselves deep amidst a relegation battle despite recruiting heavily in the summer and having entered the season with promotion hopes.
They're coming into this game totally out of form, winless in their last fourteen games in all competitions having lost four of their last five.
Their most recent outing saw them fall to a 0-1 defeat at the hands of Derby County, a game that saw caretaker manager Curtis Flemming take charge of his final game with former Luton Town and Southampton manager Nathan Jones now set to take the reigns.
Despite the failure of his time with Southampton, Jones' appointment is an interesting one with the Welshman proven in the EFL so there is real hope he can help drag the Addicks out of their current predicament.
He has a huge job on his hands and his appointment makes this game slightly tougher to call, but given recent showings it still makes the most sense to side with the Royals here.
For our Reading vs. Charlton prediction, we're going for a 1-0 win for the home side.
