Reading manager Ruben Selles has warned Charlton Athletic that although he expects them to improve under Nathan Jones, the Royals will be ready for them at the weekend.


Charlton are struggling in a relegation battle this season and they have gone through a series of managerial changes.


The Addicks hierarchy have appointed Jones as their new boss and the 50-year-old has a tough job on his hands to keep the club up in League One.




Jones will be in the dugout at the weekend for his first game as Charlton boss when his side take on Reading and Selles stated that he is expecting an intense game on Saturday.


The Royals boss also thinks that Jones will be able to get Charlton going this season and he added that the Addicks are always a dangerous team to face.


However, Selles insists that Reading will be more than ready for what Charlton bring to the table.



“They have good players”, Selles told Reading’s media.


“They did not pick the result that they wanted, but they are always dangerous and they will be dangerous.



“They’ve got a new manager that, for sure, is going to get them going and it is going to be a very intense game.


“We will be ready for it.”


Charlton have been winless since their 2-1 victory over Cheltenham Town in November and all eyes will be on Jones to see whether he can get the Addicks back to winning ways.
