Charlton Ath. prepare to entertain Swindon Town at The Valley at tea-time on Monday, looking to continue an impressive record. The Addicks are clearly on top, having won 18 and lost only 4 of the 29 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at The Valley was less than a year ago, in May 2010, the Addicks carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in an Football League Play-Offs (Lvl 3) match.
