Our prediction for this League 1 match:
After sharing the spoils with Swindon at County Ground, Charlton will be looking to return to winning ways when they host Plymouth at the Valley on day 20 of the new League One campaign. The capital club have been scoring goals for fun of late, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Plymouth. A man to watch in the home team will be Chuks Aneke, who has found his goal-scoring touch of late.
The Pilgrims, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from a 2-1 loss to Crewe, with the team beating MK Dons thanks to Ryan Hardie’s goal. Plymouth, though, have been struggling on the travels of late, which is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the Red Robins. You should bear in mind that Ryan Lowe’s men are on a four-game losing run on the road ahead of the trip to London.
Highlighted Player (Marcus Maddison):
After spending his youth career at Newcastle United, Marcus Maddison signed a professional contract with the Magpies in the 2012/2013 season. However, he was immediately loaned to Blyth Spartans where he scored one goal in two appearances.
In 2013 the pacey winger was released by Newcastle United, signing a deal with Scottish club St. Jonstone. Due to a hunger for a first-team football Marcus Maddison returns to England in the summer of 2013, signing a contract with Conference Premier club Gateshead. The 180-cm tall footballer scored 13 goals in 34 appearances for the club before joining Peterborough United in 2014.
Maddison has established himself as a first-team regular at Peterborough and he is widely expected to play an important role in the London Road Stadium outfit in the 2019/2020 League One season. The English footballer, who is capable of playing as both winger and attacking midfielder, was born in Durham on September 26, 1993.
Highlighted Team (Plymouth):
Nicknamed the Pilgrims, Plymouth are a professional football club that host their rivals at Home Park. The stadium, which can hold up to 18,600 people, was built in 1892 and opened the following year. Plymouth footballers wear dark green jerseys and white shorts when playing in front of home fans, while light green and white are the dominant colours of their away kit.
The Pilgrims made it to the FA Cup semi-finals in the 1983-84 season, with the team advancing to the Football League Cup semis on two occasions (1964-65, 1973-74). The Pilgrims recorded their biggest win against Millwall on January 16, 1932, with the team beating the Lions 8-1, and they repeated the success in 1994 as they rolled over Hartlepool United in the Second Division.
The club suffered their heaviest defeat against Stoke City (0-9) on December 17, 1960. Fellow Devon teams Exeter City and Torquay United are seen as the club’s fiercest rivals.
