Fulham are sitting third in the EFL Championship this season and veteran defender Tim Ream is a major reason for it.
The American defender will look to help the London side move to a point within second-place Leeds United with a win over Charlton Athletic on Wednesday. Ream has made 27 appearances for Fulham this campaign, helping the club to a +12 goal differential and a current spot in the top-six. Going the distance in every start this season, Ream has continued to play a huge role for Scott Parker’s side in their push for promotion back into the Premier League.
Sitting 21 points higher than their next opponents, Ream and Fulham will be favored to pick up their fourth win in a row in all competitions.
Elsewhere, Sergino Dest and Ajax are favored to advance in the Dutch KNVB Cup. DeAndre Yedlin and Indiana Vassilev will look to lead their Premier League clubs to midweek wins. Matt Miazga and Reading face a trip to Nottingham Forest in league play. Tyler Boyd, Gboly Ariyibi, and Shaq Moore all could see action in cup competitions.
