Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Port Vale and Charlton Athletic take on each other at Vale Park on day 19 of the new League One campaign. The Valiants have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team beating Lincoln, sharing the spoils with Wycombe, while losing to Oxford United 4-0. Port Vale defeated Lincoln 1-0 in their last home game, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of Saturday’s clash.
All Garrity, Odubeko, and Politic are pushing for a start as boss Darrell James should opt to make changes to the team that suffered the heavy defeat at the weekend. The capital club, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their three-game winless run in the League One. Charlton, though, have recorded only one win on the road this term, and we do not believe that they are capable of picking up more than one point from Saturday’s clash. A man to watch in the away team will be Charlie Kirk, who scored a brace in a thrilling 3-3 draw with Burton Albion.
Highlighted Player (David Amoo):
David Amoo is a professional football player who was born in Southwark, London, England on April 13, 1991. Amoo spent his youth career at the likes of Millwall and Liverpool, but nowadays he plays for League Two side Port Vale.
It has to be noted that the pacey winger played for the likes of Milton Keynes Dons (loan), Hull City (loan), Bury (loan), Preston, Tranmere Rovers, Carlisle United, Patrick Thistle, and Cambridge United as well before joining the Valiants in the summer of 2019. David Amoo made his League Two debut with Port Vale on August 3, 2019, in a 1-1 draw with Colchester United.
He scored his first goal for the Valiants in a 1-1 draw with Northampton Town seven days later. His primary position is a right winger, but he is often used as both left winger and second striker. David Amoo has dual citizenship (England/Nigeria).
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.
