Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Fleetwood will look to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Peterborough when they face Charlton on day 10. The Cod Army have been in a fine form of late, and they must be high on spirits following the midweek triumph. There are no injury worries in the home team ahead of the visit of Charlton. The Red Robins, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their four-game winless run.
The capital club managed to find the net in each of their last five league fixtures, and given Fleetwood’s fine form, both teams to score betting option should be considered. Defender Ryan Inniss is banned for the visiting side following his sending off in a 1-1 draw with Forest Green. In their last meeting at the venue Charlton defeated Fleetwood 2-1.
Highlighted Player (Tom Clarke):
Tom Clarke is a defender who plays for Preston North End. He used to play for Huddersfield Town, Halifax (loan), Bradford City (loan) and Leyton Orient (loan) in the past and in May, 2013 he joined the Lilywhites.
On 5 August, 2013 Clarke scored the winner for Preston against Blackpool and it has to be noted that it was his only second appearance for the club. Tom is Nathan Clarke’s brother and his main position is centre back. However, the Preston footballer is capable of playing as both left and right back as well. Tom Clarke played for England U18 and U19 teams and he scored one goal for the national team at international youth level.
Clarke won Football League One play-offs on two occasions. He did it with Huddersfield Town in 2012 and with Preston in 2015. He made 35 appearances for the Lilywhites in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign, but he failed to find the net.
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.
