Charlton Athletic Prediction – Can Charlton extend unbeaten start?

Having avoided defeat in their opening three matches of this new Championship season, newly promoted Charlton Athletic are amongst the early frontrunners at the top of the second tier league table, with 2 wins and 1 draw under their belts to date.

Charlton Athletic secured promotion back up to the Championship at the end of last season via the play-offs under manager, Lee Bowyer, who had suffered the agony of the play-offs just the season before.

The Addicks have made an impressive return though to the Championship this season as they recorded early back-to-back wins against Blackburn Rovers 2-1 away at Ewood Park before heading back to The Valley where they registered another 3 points in a 3-1 win over Stoke City.

Although the London club then made an early exit out of the League Cup after losing on penalties to League Two side, Forest Green Rovers, Bowyer’s Charlton outfit extended their unbeaten start to their Championship campaign with a point at Barnsley in a 2-2 draw.

The hosts possess forward Taylor (3 goals) and creative midfielder Williams (3 assists) in their attacking personnel.

Nottingham Forest Prediction – Can Luton get anything at Hillsborough?

Wednesday night’s visitors, Nottingham Forest, will be looking to record a third win on the trot in all competitions when they make their way down to the nation’s capital to take on Charlton Athletic at The Valley, having registered a win in the Championship and the League Cup.

It was a slow start to the new season for Forest though as the Tricky Trees suffered an opening day 2-1 defeat at home to West Brom at the City Ground, but then earned a solid point on the road with a 1-1 draw at Elland Road against Leeds United.

Nottingham Forest have come to life in recent times though as they safely negotiated a 1-0 home win over League One outfit, Fleetwood Town, in the League Cup and then followed that up with a convincing 3-0 home win over Birmingham City in the Championship on the weekend.

However, it should be noted that both of these recent wins for Forest were achieved at their City Ground, while results away from home in the Championship have been simply woeful; with just 1 away win from their last 15 matches on the road, the visitors will do well to get a point on Wednesday night, but they do have momentum behind them.


Key-Facts – Charlton v Nottingham Forest

  • Charlton Athletic gained promotion from League One at the end of last season
  • Charlton Athletic still remain unbeaten after 3 matches in the Championship
  • Nottingham Forest have won their last 2 matches on the trot


Betting Tips Verdict

Both Charlton and Nottingham Forest head into this encounter in reasonable form and I wouldn’t be surprised if both teams score in this clash.
