Criticism of Karl Robinson is mounting with his record at the helm of Charlton no better than that of Russell Slade. Both his formations and team selection are open to doubt: Fading hopes
The underlying problem is that, taken collectively, the team are really not good enough to maintain a sustained play off challenge. Tomorrow at the Crown Oil Arena (aka Spotland) they face a Rochdale side who have had a dip in form recently, but are still ahead in the table (9th). In the form table they are 21st while Charlton are 10th.
Rochdale have been relaying their pitch this week after it deteriorated and was no longer conducive to the quality football to which they aspire.
No surprise that the bookies have Rochdale as clear favourites: Rochdale 5/4, Draw 23/10, Charlton 11/5.
