How Rak-Sakyi helps Charlton's counter attack record

In a feature on Charlton, yesterday's Football League Paper revealed that only Plymouth have scored more goals on the counter attack this season.

Jesurun Rak-Sakyi commented: 'I'm at my most dangerous on the counter attack because that's were the spaces are.  I like to get on the ball and get on defences when they're not really set.  It's been a tough season, but, over the last few weeks, we've shown an intensity to get after teams and win the ball back which is what the manager wants.'

Burton Albion come to The Valley today on the back of a 2-1 win over promotion hopefuls Barnsley.  Burton have moved up to 10th in the form table and are probably out of relegation danger (Charlton are 5th).  Away from home Burton have won five, drawn four and lost ten.  

We have only lost to Burton once, but that was 0-1 at home in 2021.   Some of us remember a 7-0 cup win in 1956.
