Can we unseat Chairboys?

Charlton go to Wycombe Wanderers this evening while Sunderland are at home to Burton Albion. 1,500 Addicks are expected to attend.

Wycombe are currently bottom of the form table while Charlton are third, but this does not mean very much when the Chairboys are battling the threat of relegation. Wycombe have won eight, drawn five and lost seven games at home. Curiously, this is identical to Charlton's away record. Wycombe have not won a game since the end of January.

Manager Gareth Ainsworth says his side has been fighting for weeks, complaining that he has the smallest squad in the league and the smallest staff in the Football League.

Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth could have Luke Bolton back in contention for the match. The on-loan Manchester City winger picked up an injury against Shrewsbury on March 16 but could return to action. Darius Charles remains the only long-term injury absentee as Ainsworth has an almost fully-fit squad to choose from.

Krystian Bielik is out injured: Ankle injury

Lyle Taylor could get his 20th goal of the season tonight in line with a prediction by Lee Bowyer: Goal wager with hotshot

Odds are: Wycombe, 23/10; Draw, 12/5; Charlton, 11/10 (Paddy Power).

The referee is Antony Coggins who usually officiates in League Two. He has the distinction of having sent off a father and son in the same game.
