Trotters provide very tough test

There is no doubt that this afternoon's game against Bolton Wanderers is a particularly tough test and will probably provide more ammunition for the vocal 'relegation is inevitable' crowd:

It is asserted that this is the worst Charlton team ever, although I think there are competitors over the last 70 years.  It might be pointed out that we have never been in the 4th division.

However, at one time there was no 4th division but a third division north and south with only one team from each being promoted.   For years this kept the likes of the Glaziers and the Super Hoops in their rightful place.

Promotion chasing Bolton have won eleven at home, drawn two and lost three.  They have scored 32 goals.  I doubt whether the Addicks defence will last the 100+ minutes.

Midweek they beat Wycombe 2-1 at home after drawing at Northampton last Saturday.
