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.
