History of the Charlton Athletic v Coventry City fixture

Charlton Ath. play host to Coventry City at The Valley on Sunday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 1 of the 14 previous games, with the Addicks winning just 6.

The last time the two teams met at Charlton Ath. was back in September 2000, over five years ago, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a Premiership match.

Recent respective form guides

Charlton Athletic will be hoping to improve on their poor home form, collecting just 4 draws from the last six contests. The Addicks's have scored 8 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 10.

Coventry City's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. The Sky Blues's have a narrow positive goal difference over these games, with 9 goals for and 8 against.

Charlton Ath.'s 61 points from 45 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 12th position. Coventry City are currently lying in 19th place in Coca-Cola Championship having mustered a points tally of 53 from their 45 matches played.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Its been a distinctly poor show from Charlton Ath. at home in recent games, and, though I cannot see a run starting here, I do think the Addicks will at least gain a draw. Score draw
