One last chance to impress at home

At least it was fun on the last day when they came.  Hartlepool now face relegation to the National League.

Burslem's finest come to The Valley tomorrow for the last home game, one that is unlikely to inspire much excitement.  Most of the 600,000 Charlton 'followers' will probably not even check the score.

Port Vale did look relegation threatened at one point, but have scraped together points to avoid the drop, including a 2-0 home win over Bristol Rovers last Saturday.   This result broke an eight game run without a win.

Vale had sacked manager Darrell Clarke with Andy Crosby in interim charge.

Away from home Vale have won five, drawn five and lost twelve.  38 goals have been conceded.  Charlton have won eight, drawn seven and lost seven at home.

Most fans are more focused on what is happening off the pitch, not that developments give much comfort. It would be good if the team could put together a decent performance, but I am not very hopeful.

CAS Trust ask whether it will be a Shrewsbuiy surprise or Morcambe misery?  My guess would be a rather boring draw.
