Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Shrewsbury Town and Charlton Athletic face each other at The Croud Meadow in what is expected to be a close League One encounter. The Shrews suffered a dip in form, with the team extending their losing run to three games at Leyton Orient and given their difficulties in front of goal, home win should not be considered. There are no fresh injury concerns in the home team ahead of Saturday’s encounter.
The Red Robins, on the other hand, have been in a fine form of late, with the team beating both Fleetwood and Wycombe, while sharing the spoils with Stevenage. Charlton are more of a team than Shrewsbury and despite their poor away record, we are tempted to put our money on the capital club. Serbia midfielder Slobodan Tedic is pushing for a rare start after finding the net in the 3-1 triumph over the Chairboys.
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.
