Following their reset under inspirational manager Jon Brady, Northampton Town are looking forward to their visit to The Valley tonight. However, are they really underdogs as their claim given Charlton's home record? https://www.ntfc.co.uk/news/2021/march/jb_093021/
To talk of Charlton as an ex-Premier League team is really stretching a point. Babes in arms when we left the top flight are now teenagers.
I originally had this down as a 3-1 win for Charlton at the start of the year. Now they will have to cope with on form Ryan Watson who scored a brace against Portsmouth on Tuesday.
What we must not do is concede another early goal and end up chasing the game. As Curbs has said, we need to be defensive to start with and work out what the Cobblers are trying to do.
