Our prediction for this League 1 match:
The Valley will host a highly-anticipated football game between Charlton Athletic and Fleetwood, who face each other in the League One round 6. The Red Robins kicked off the new campaign in great manner, with the team beating Leyton Orient in their opener, but they are on a five-game losing run ahead of Saturday’s clash. Deji Elerewe suffered an injury in a 2-1 loss to Oxford United, with Chem Campbell likely to step up.
The Cod Army, on the other hand, suffered a loss in each of their last five games in all competitions. As Fleetwood are eager to return to winning ways as well, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. It has to be noted that Fleetwood first-choice goalkeeper Jay Lynch is banned for the match, with teenager Stephen McMullan likely to replace him between the sticks.
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.
