Our prediction for this Championship match:
Reading have been playing above expectations at the start of the new Championship campaign, with the team recording two wins, one draw and two defeats to date. The Royals proved their worth in a 2-0 win at Huddersfield Town, but they need to keep on raising their form if they are to stay in the race for a place in the play-offs. Romanian attacker George Puscas, who has netted two goals so far this season, will be one of the men to keep an eye on in the home team.
The Red Robbins, on the other hand, did well to beat their local rivals Brentford 1-0 at the weekend, with the team climbing to third place in the standings. The newcomers have been producing fine performances on the travels at the start of the season, but seeing that Reading are on a three-game unbeaten run in the league, share of spoils is on the cards.
Highlighted Player (Jordan Obita):
Jordan Obita is a left-back who plays for Reading in the Championship. Obita is capable of playing as a winger as well and he is a left-footed player. He was born in Oxford and, as expected, he had trials with his home-town club, but he eventually signed a deal with Reading. He joined the Reading youth academy at age of 8 and he made his senior debut for the Royals on 11 August, 2010.
He came from the bench in the League Cup clash against Torquay United and he made his first start against Charlton Athletic in the same competition in the 2011/2012 season. Obita spent several years on loan at Barnet, Gillingham, Portsmouth and Oldham Athletic, but he is still a Reading player. He has a contract with the Madejski Stadium outfit until 30 June. 2018.
Jordan Obita has two caps for England U20 and he played for the U18 an U19 teams in the past as well. The Reading left-back was named the Player of the Season for the 2013/2014 Championship campaign.
Highlighted Team (Charlton):
Charlton Athletic are yet another capital club that will compete in the 2019/2020 Championship season. Founded back in 1905, the Red Robins welcome their opponents at the Valley, the stadium which can hold up to 28,111 spectators. Charlton Athletic wear red shirts and white shorts when playing on home soil, whereas black is the dominant colour of their away kit.
Winning of the 1946/1947 FA Cup trophy is considered the club’s biggest success. The Red Robins defeated Burnley 1-0 in the title game, with Chris Duffy scoring the winner for Jimmy Seed’s charges in extra-time.
Fellow capital clubs Crystal Palace and Millwall are regarded as Charlton’s fiercest rivals, whilst Samuel Bartram, who made 579 appearances for the club is one of the most famous footballers who played for the Valley outfit. The club based in London will compete in the English second tier in the 2019/2020 season following a three-year absence.
