Charlton host Sheiffield Wednesday in the Championship’s early kick off on Saturday afternoon. Lee Bowyer’s team have been on a poor run as of late. The Addicks have only picked up two points from their last six Championship fixtures.
Sheffield Wednesday also come into this one after a disappointing spell. Garry Monk’s side have not won in their last five outings. Monk endured a very positive start to life at Hilsborough but things have not been going too well as of late.
Both sides will be identifying this game as a good opportunity to break out of their bad spells and get back to winning ways. Despite their poor run, Charlton’s home form has been good. They have only lost three matches at home since returning to the Champiosnhip.
Wednesday have been average away from home thus far. They have not won in four away matches but did win three consecutively before that.
Jake Forster-Caskey and Jonny Williams both will be out for this one. Star striker Lyle Taylor is nearing a return to the squad but this may be just too soon.
Cameron Dawson is likely to keep his place in goal following Keiran Westwood’s poor form. Julian Borner is suspended after picking up five yellow cards.
With these sides a combined 10 games without a win, a draw seems a fair bet to go for. Charlton drew their most recent home match and Sheffield Wednesday have drawn two of their last three. 3.50 for a draw looks like great value here.
Steven Fletcher is Wednesday’s top scorer this season with six goals to his name. He bagged in the Owls’ last away match which was against West Brom. He is fully fit and should be starting this one against Charlton. He is averaging better than a goal every three games this campaign, so odds of 2.87 for him to score is not bad at all.
