Our prediction for this League 1 match:
In-form Charlton Athletic will be aiming to return to winning ways in League One when they welcome Exeter to the Valley on Tuesday evening. The Red Robins have been producing fine displays of late and it has to be noted that they failed to turn their dominance in possession into goals in a draw with Shrewsbury. Terry Taylor limped off with in the last league fixture, with Louie Watson likely to step up.
The Grecians, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 2-0 loss to Northampton at the weekend, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered. There are no fresh injury worries in the visiting team ahead of the trip to London. You should bear in mind that Charlton recorded a 4-2 win over Exeter in their last meeting at the Valley in the English third tier.
Highlighted Team (Charlton):
Charlton Athletic are yet another capital club that will compete in the 2019/2020 Championship season. Founded back in 1905, the Red Robins welcome their opponents at the Valley, the stadium which can hold up to 28,111 spectators. Charlton Athletic wear red shirts and white shorts when playing on home soil, whereas black is the dominant colour of their away kit.
Winning of the 1946/1947 FA Cup trophy is considered the club’s biggest success. The Red Robins defeated Burnley 1-0 in the title game, with Chris Duffy scoring the winner for Jimmy Seed’s charges in extra-time.
Fellow capital clubs Crystal Palace and Millwall are regarded as Charlton’s fiercest rivals, whilst Samuel Bartram, who made 579 appearances for the club is one of the most famous footballers who played for the Valley outfit. The club based in London will compete in the English second tier in the 2019/2020 season following a three-year absence.
