Keith Curle's quiet revolution comes to The Valley tomorrow and with Notts County hoping to secure a play off place they are ready to rise to the challenge: http://www.thisisnottingham.co.uk/Notts-County-rise-biggest-challenge-says-boss/story-15430826-detail/story.html
On the whole, the tone of what is coming out of Nottingham strikes me as less confident than the very strong confidence coming out of Colchester earlier in the week.
Curle told Radio Nottingham, 'Charlton proved last week that they are not unbeatable. Sheffield United and Sheffield Wednesday will be difficult games but they have weaknesses.'
'If you ask everybody in the division they will say Charlton will get promoted as champions, but they have to get over the line. We have a gameplan that we will take there. The majority of times they play 4-4-2. Can we match them if we play 4-4-2? Yes. And can we give them problems if we play a different formation? Yes.'
Sounds like a 4-5-1 involving the team bus. Charlton should be good for a point.
Chris Powell has won his third manager of the month award, a further burden to overcome. Former Addick Jon Fortune has signed for Exeter City.
