At 5.05pm this afternoon, Charlton Athletic will return to action at The Valley for the first time since the 12th December and the 1- 0 defeat to Walsall.
A lot’s happened since then, we’ve played only three times, lost on penalties to Brentford after some incredible goal keeping, but over 90 mins, we’re unbeaten, and, if you had told me in October that we’d draw away against Brighton and Colchester, I’d have said good result, and I still do.
Swindon on the other hand are a team I thought would be right up there chasing promotion again, but things haven’t gone their way so far, and with the takeover going through on Friday, we should have the spirit to give our new board a first win of the New Year.
In terms of team news, I’m not sure if Paul Benson’s red card will be rescinded in time for him to play tonight, if it’s not though, I could see Phil Parkinson opting for a 4-3-3 formation to really attack a Swindon side that have let in 36 goals so far this season.
With this in mind, my prediction for tonight’s starting line up is:
GK: Rob Elliot
RB: Simon Francis
CB: Gary Doherty
CB: Christian Dailly ©
LB: Matt Fry
CM: Therry Racon
CM: Jose Semedo
CM: Johnnie Jackson
RW: Lee Martin
ST: Pawel Abbott
LW: Kyel Reid
SUBS: Ross Worner, Jonathan Fortune, Marcel Seip, Miguel Llera, Alan McCormack, Scott Wagstaff, Akpo Sodje
COME ON YOU ADDICKS!!!
