Charlton have agreed an emergency loan move for Reading striker David Mooney.
The 24-year-old will go straight into the starting line-up for the Addicks' clash with Huddersfield Town at the Valley.
Struggling to break into the Royals starting Xl, he spent the early part of the year on-loan with Stockport and Norwich.
Keen to gain match experience, he has put pen-to-paper on a deal which will keep him with the League One title contenders until 1st December.
Charlton boss Phil Parkinson says the move affords him back-up for injured striker Leon McKenzie who has suffered a set-back in training.
The added strike power also means Deon Burton can recover properly from a hernia problem.
"Leon has had a bit of a setback in training," he told the club's official website.
"It's nothing major, but it leaves Izale McLeod and Deon as our only two senior strikers.
"Dave is a goalscorer and an intelligent footballer," he added. "He's someone we looked at when he was on loan at Norwich City last year and we've watched him for Reading's reserves this season.
"He's hungry to come and play and we look forward to working with him."
