Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Struggling Forest Green will look to give fans some cheer when they take on Charlton Athletic in the League One round 32. The Green Army are fighting hard to secure the survival, but their current form is not giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of upcoming challenges. Talented midfielder Tyler Onyango suffered an injury in a 1-1 draw with Morecambe, with Ben Stevenson likely to step up, while Jamaica forward Jahmari Clarke is pushing for a start after scoring as a substitute in the last league match.
Meanwhile, the Red Robins have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team remaining in the middle of the table. Since Charlton have slim playoffs chances, we are tempted to put our money on the relegation-threatened hosts. To make things even worse for the visiting side, defender Ryan Inniss is banned for the match following his sending off in a 2-1 loss to Fleetwood.
Highlighted Player (Luke McGee):
Born on the 2nd of September, 1995, Luke McGee is an English professional footballer who plays for Portsmouth FC in the English Football League One. The 1.92m tall goalkeeper is a Tottenham Hotspur product who turned professional with the club in 2014.
Although never having featured for its first team, McGee made sporadic appearances for the club's Under-18 and Under-23 teams before joining Petersborough United on a 4-month loan. He made his first league one appearance with the club in a 2-2 draw with Port Vale at home on the 10th of September, 2016. At the end of the loan period, he returned to Spurs, who, in turn, sold him to Portsmouth in a deal worth 100,000 euros at the start of the 2017-2018 season.
McGee has since made over 40 appearances for the Pompey, where his current contract runs until the Summer of 2020. On the International front, the 24-year-old has featured for the England Under-17 team, making his debut in 2011 at the age of 15.
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.
