Charlton Athletic Preview – Can Charlton end their dire home form and stay in in the hunt for a top six finish?

Lee Bowyer’s Charlton have their work cut out in order to finish in the playoffs. Sitting in ninth, they are four points behind sixth place Portsmouth coming into this game but, perhaps crucially, they have played at least one game more than all the other teams currently above them in the table. There is plenty of football still to be played however and if Charlton can get on a winning run then they will be hopeful of climbing the table.

Recent form will be something of a concern for Bowyer who has seen his team win just one of their last six in the league. Although they have taken four points from their last two games.


Our betting prediction:

(odds taken 2000 GMT, Monday 8 March)
Overall this season it’s been Charlton’s form at home which has been the biggest issue. Their four victories is the lowest of any of the top 16. Contrast that with their form away from home and the nine wins they have accrued giving them the second best record in the Championship.
You have to go all the way back to the middle of December for the last time Charlton won a home game. Since then they have taken only three points from a possible 24.

Northampton Town Preview – Could Northampton make it three victories in a row for the first time this season?

Northampton remain involved in the relegation battle at the bottom end of League One but their situation now compared to three weeks ago is much more positive. Keith Curle was sacked at the beginning of February when the club were second bottom and looking increasingly likely to drop into the league below. It hasn’t been an instant uptick in results for new boss Jon Brady but their most recent results and performances indicate they are going the right way now.

Back to back wins against Plymouth and Portsmouth (the latter of which was a 4-1 victory) have moved Northampton out of the relegation zone and up to 19th in the table.

There remains a lot of work to do for Northampton considering they are only two points above the drop zone with it looking increasingly likely that seven teams are battling to avoid finishing in the bottom four places. Brady will hope that his team are hitting a bit of form at just the right team.

A real issue for Northampton has been conceding goals on their travels this season. Their concession of 29 goals is the joint worst of any team in the division but they have kept two clean sheets in their last four away matches.

Charlton Athletic vs Northampton Town Betting Advice

The first meeting of the season between these teams ended in a comfortable success for Charlton. It’s not a huge surprise considering their excellent away form and that it was in a period where Northampton were really struggling. Now however, with Charlton so vulnerable at home and Northampton hitting some form, could they get revenge?!
