History of the Charlton Athletic v Coventry City fixture

Charlton Ath. prepare to entertain Coventry City at The Valley on Tuesday evening, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 1 of the 15 previous games, with the Addicks winning just 7.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at The Valley was less than a year ago, in May 2008, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 4-1 thriller, in a Championship match.

Recent respective form guides

Charlton Athletic's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Addicks have scored 6, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

Charlton Ath. find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 21 games have yielded only 17 points. Coventry City find themselves struggling down in 17th position in the league having picked up 25 points from their 21 matches.
