Into the Den

In a specially arranged Yuletide peace and harmony fixture, Charlton play Millwall at The New Den tonight. Charlton's record against their neighbours is not good to say the least and the last we played them there at this level we lost 4-0. Charlton have not beaten Millwall since 1996.

Odds are: Millwall Evens, Draw 12/5, Charlton 11/4. Millwall expect to be close to full strength: Millwall preview

Josh Magennis claims to be 'fired up' for the game. Let's hope so: Magennis

Charlton manager Karl Robinson says that the match is about actions not words. He revealed that it is a 'massive' game: Get in

Let's just hope that after this evening he doesn't have to replace his book of football clich├ęs by a copy of Alan Pardew's Great Big Book of Football Excuses.

Millwall have been having their own troubles with Lewisham Council trying to slap a compulsory purchase order on some of their land, including that used by their Community Trust. The origins of this improbable gentrification project are rather murky and likely to be fought out in the courts.
