Our prediction for this League 1 match:
County Ground will host Saturday’s football game between Swindon Athletic and Charlton Athletic, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the 2020/21 League One season. Swindon sit in the relegation zone ahead of Matchday 19, and, no doubt, the team’s main goal is to secure the survival. The Robins suffered a dip in form, and seeing that they are on a four-game losing run in the league, we do not believe that home win should be considered.
The Red Robins, on the other hand, were not in action in midweek as their game against Bristol Rovers was postponed. Charlton aim to build on a thrilling 5-2 win over AFC Wimbledon, and they should take advantage of Swindon’s poor form. When the two teams met in the EFL Cup two months ago the Red Robins defeated the Robins 3-1, which is yet another reason why away win should be considered.
Highlighted Player (Zeki Fryers):
Zeki Fryers is a product of Manchester United football academy who plays for Swindon Town in the League Two. Born in Manchester, England, on September 9, 1992, Fryers made two appearances for the Red Devils in the Premier League.
He made his debut for the English giants in the League Cup game against Leeds United on September 20, 2011. The 183-cm tall left-back played for the likes of Standard Liege, Tottenham Hotspur, Crystal Palace, Rotherham United (loan), Ipswich Town (loan), and Barnsley as well before signing a deal with Swindon Town in 2019 as a free player.
He made his Swindon Town debut in the League Two in a 2-0 win at Scunthorpe United on August 3, 2019. Speaking of his international career, Zeki Fryers played for the England U16, U17, and U19 teams in the past. His main position is left-back, but he is used as a centre-back as well. His preferred foot is left.
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.
