Swansea City Prediction – Can Swansea return to winning ways?

Thursday night’s hosts, Swansea City, were held to a 0-0 stalemate at home by Barnsley last time out in the Championship, but the Welsh club hold home advantage again this evening when they entertain struggling Charlton Athletic, with The Swans no doubt looking to return to winning ways here.

Swansea City have sen an improvement in results in recent weeks under manager, Steve Cooper, as the hosts have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 5 matches in the Championship, a run that includes recent wins against Middlesbrough and Luton Town in 3-1 and 1-0 victories respectively.

The hosts have also picked up recent points in draws with Blackburn Rovers and the aforementioned Barnsley result, so Swansea have made themselves a hard team to beat again in recent times, while their overall home record stands at 5-3-5 16/15.

Whilst this record overall doesn’t look much to write home about, Swansea are unbeaten in their last 3 matches at their Liberty Stadium and they also recorded a 2-1 win away at Charlton in the last meeting back in October at The Valley.

Charlton Athletic Prediction – Can Charlton improve on the road?

A recent 3-2 home win against Bristol City saw a revival in Charlton Athletic’s fortunes but their hopes of continuing this revival were dashed in a 2-1 defeat away from home at Derby County last time out in the Championship and the London club are now in 19th place on the Championship ladder.

With just 1 win out of their last 13 matches overall in the second tier, the pressure is starting to build on Addicks manager, Lee Bowyer and his players as they continue to struggle to gain points in order to pull themselves away from the relegation zone.

To make matters worse, Charlton’s results away from home have been woeful in recent times as The Addicks are without an away win from their last 9 matches on their travels, a poor sequence of results which have seen Charlton lose 6 of these 9 matches too.

Charlton’s away record therefore doesn’t make positive reading as it stands at a poor 2-4-6 16/20 along with keeping just 1 clean sheet on the road all season.


Key-Facts – Swansea City vs Charlton Athletic

  • Swansea have lost just 1 of their last 5 matches overall in the Championship
  • Charlton have lost 6 of their last 9 away matches in the Championship
  • Swansea recorded a 2-1 win away at Charlton in the last meeting in October


Betting Tips Verdict

Swansea with home advantage should account for Charlton here.
