History of the Charlton Athletic v Birmingham City fixture

Charlton Ath. prepare to entertain Birmingham City at The Valley on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Addicks are clearly on top, having won 14 and lost only 3 of the 25 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at The Valley was less than a year ago, in January 2005, with Charlton Ath. running out comfortable 3-1 winners in a Premiership match.

Recent respective form guides

Charlton Athletic's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While Addicks have scored 9, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

Birmingham C.'s away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While the Blues have hit 4 goals, 10 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Charlton Ath. see themselves just below half way in the Barclays Premiership, showing a record of 25 points from their 19 games played so far, Birmingham C. are stuck down in the relegation zone of Barclays Premiership with a return of just 16 points from their 20 games thus far.
