It will be a cold night under the lights at The Valley as Charlton take on Peterborough United. Their manager Grant McCann has said, 'Charlton are a good side and Karl Robinson always likes his teams to play passing football so it should be a good game. The Valley is a great stadium with a wide pitch. The games are coming thick and fast at the minute and we will utilise the squad because there are a few players struggling with knocks and niggles.' This implies a few injury worries for the visitors.
According to Four Four Two 'Fans remain unconvinced that he possesses a fire in his belly that club owner Donagh McAnthony can identify with'. The Posh finished 11th last season and Four Four Two forecast a similar 12th place finish this time. The fan interviewed thought they would finish 9th.
There were great hopes at the beginning of the season for Ricky Miller, signed from Dover, but he only came on as a sub on Saturday. He wasn't able to play for the whole of August as he was serving a retrospective ban for biting a Guisely player.
Peterborough are currently two places below Charlton in League One, although lower down the form table. Like Charlton they lost 2-0 on Saturday, in their case at Rochdale. Away from home they have won two, drawn four and lost three.
Last year we lost 0-2 at home to them. Odds: Charlton 21/20, Draw 13/5, Peterborough 12/5.
