Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Crewe play host to Charlton at their Alexandra Stadium in what is expected to be an interesting League One game. The Railwaymen are fighting hard to secure the survival, and seeing that they are seven points behind the safe zone, we are positive that the hosts are going to leave their hearts on the field. Head coach David Artell rested several first-team regulars in the EFL Trophy defeat to Burton, but the Welshman is going to field the best possible side this time out.
The Red Robins, on the other hand, aim to keep their League One playoffs alive. Charlton Athletic will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways, and given Crewe’s shaky defence, away win should be considered. A man to keep an eye on in the away side will be Northern Ireland international Conor Washington, who was rested in the FA Cup loss to Norwich, while fellow attacker Jayden Stockley is a major doubt. Defender Akin Famewo returns to the starting XI after he was ineligible to face his parent club at the weekend.
Highlighted Player (Donervon Daniels):
Donervon Daniels is a 186-cm-tall defender who plays for Wigan Athletic. He was born in Montserrat on 24 November, 1993 and he is a product of WBA football academy. After spending several seasons on loan at Tranmere Rovers, Gillingham, Blackpool and Aberdeen, Daniels signed for Wigan Athletic on a three-year-contract on June, 2015 and he netted his first goal for the Latics against Scunthorpe United two months later.
He made 33 appearances for Wigan in the 2015/2016 League One campaign and no doubt he helped the club secure promotion to the Championship. His main position is centre back, but he is capable of playing at right back as well. His highest market value was €250 000 on May 30, 2016.
Daniels has contract with Wigan Athletic which expires on 30 June, 2018. It has to be noted that that he was awarded WBA Young Player of the Year for the 2011/2012 season. Donvervon Daniels is a right-footed player.
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.
