One point from the first three games is the worst start for Charlton in the third tier since 1928/9 and CAS Trust sees little ground for optimism in their match preview: https://www.castrust.org/2021/08/wigan-where-will-the-win-come-from/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=wigan-where-will-the-win-come-from
Four Four Two forecasts a 12th place finish for the Lactics, while the Fan File contributor forecasts anything from 1st to 10th depending on 'how quickly a new side gels'. Ipswich have found that it is not straightforward buying a side, but Wigan have done better without in any way being dominant.
The 1-0 win against Rotherham last Saturday was secured with a stoppage time header from a Max Power free kick given away in a dangerous area.
30 goal Charlie Wyke is undoubtedly the danger man to match, but former Charlton keeper Ben Amos was named as star player last Saturday.

Amid all the doom and gloom from Charlton supporters, I do find the suggestion that Thomas Sandgaard is a worse owner than Roland ridiculous. The barmy Belgian ran up a £60m debt, but still failed to pay enough in wages to keep us up in the Championship. He engaged in unpleasant cheese paring such as denying hard working staff their bonuses. Then he sold the club on to a group of entrepreneurs of doubtful probity who nearly brought it crashing down.
