Reading FC v Charlton Squad Selector: The Results

It's always trickier to pick a team after a win, do you play it safe or tinker to make it stronger? Well we once again gave you the chance to play the part of Nigel Adkins and here's the team you selected.

Martin Willetts

With a 3-0 win on Tuesday night it was unsurprising to see the vast majority of you opt for an identical team for the visit of Charlton.

Adam Federici was once again a clear choice with only three brave souls wanting him replaced, and Mikkel Andersen your number two keeper in all but two ballots.

Stephen Kelly was picked by 90% of you to keep his place with Chris Gunter earning a solid 84% of the votes cast.

In the centre of defence, Anton Ferdinand (64%) was heavily backed only to be ruled out with less than 24 hours of the poll remaining, and so with injury in mind, it's Michael Hector on 41% who's been chosen to partner Alex Pearce (85%).

In the midfield and Danny Williams and Oliver Norwood were selected by nearly everyone on 97% and 99% respectively while Jamie Mackie garnered 92% of the votes and Jordan Obita 93%.

The vast majority of you resisted the temptation to bring back Garath McCleary, with the winger receiving 22% support. The only other player backed to start with more than 10% of support was Nick Blackman on 14%.

Simon Cox was picked by 98% of you with just two voters wanting to leave out Glenn Murray.

Substitutes wise Hope Akpan was the most well supported choice on 83%, followed by Blackman (73%), and McCleary (63%).

SUBSTITUTES

Andersen, Cooper*, Akpan, Blackman, McCleary, Taylor, Robson-Kanu/Pogrebnyak (Tied vote)

*(Hector was picked by 54% for the bench with Cooper on 38% but given most votes were cast before Ferdinand was ruled out I'll transfer those votes to Cooper)

So have your fellow fans got things correct or should Nigel Adkins ahve changed things up a bit more? Let us know below.
