New signing Joe Dodoo has a reputation for scoring a debut goal when he moves to a new club. Another way of putting it is that he starts well then fades.
With Magennis away on international duty, he is likely to start and may well have a chance of getting the ball in the net. Oldham Athletic have zero points so far, and the only two goals they have scored have been away from home.
In their matches so far, there has been a pattern of the Latics starting poorly in the first half and then staging a recovery that is too late to put matters right.
Although they were founders of the Premier League, Oldham have been in League One longer than any club. This is their 21st season in a row in the third division. Last season they finished 17th.
Last year we lost there 1-0, albeit on a cold night in February, but the previous three outings at this level have seen two wins and a draw.
CASC Trust's preview suggests that it could be a scrappy win for Charlton putting the Addicks in the top two: Preview. If that is the outcome, Karl Robinson will think that his slim line squad strategy has worked. Supporters, having had their confidence undermined by the events in the transfer window, may succumb to the Goldfish syndrome.
Odds are: Oldham 16/5, Draw 12/5, Charlton 10/11. The chances of a Charlton away win look good, which is probably another way of saying it will end in a bore draw.
