History of the Preston North End v Charlton Athletic fixture

Charlton Ath. travel to take on Preston North End at Deepdale at tea-time on Saturday, and have come away with little in previous meetings, having been beaten a depressing 20 out of 30 times.

The last time the two teams met at Preston N.E. was way back in the black-and-white days of November 1979, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1 - 1 final scoreline in a Second Division match.
