Team News: Charlton Athletic
There’s just the sole fitness concern for the Charlton Athletic boss Nigel Adkins to be concerned about from an otherwise fully-primed group of players. Jake Forster-Caskey (Cruciate Ligament Injury) will miss out.
Team News: Accrington Stanley
Due to a mostly full-strength squad, there is just the one fitness issue for the Accrington Stanley gaffer John Coleman to be concerned with. Yeboah Amankwah (Knee Injury) won’t be in action.
We’re inclined to think that Accrington Stanley may find it difficult to score goals against this Charlton Athletic team who we reckon should get the win and a maybe even keep a clean sheet as well.
We’re going for a hard-fought 1-0 victory for Charlton Athletic when the referee blows for full-time.
