Town head down to the capital in good spirits after starting out their 2022 fixture schedule with two wins in a row over both Doncaster Rovers and Rotherham United.

Rotherham were the last opponents and that game ended in a 1-0 win at Highbury. It was a well-fought and feisty performance from both sides in the game, but it was a last-gasp goal from substitute Anthony Pilkington which decided the league clash, poking it past Josh Vickers from close range.

In the 1-0 win over Doncaster, the deciding goal in the game was scored by debutant Ellis Harrison, who signed for the club just hours before naming the line-up ahead of the game, as he poked home Paddy Lane’s low-driven cross from the right – finishing off the perfect opening day for the forward.

The Addicks have been going through a tough run recently as they have had a loaded fixture schedule since the New Year celebrations three weeks ago.

In their last outing, the points were shared as they travelled to Whaddon Road last weekend. Dan N’Lundulu opened the scoring for the hosts, but Chuks Aneke salvaged a draw for Charlton as he scored seconds from the end.

A tight encounter was just before that as Johnnie Jackson’s side made their way to Crewe Alexandra but lost out 2-1 on the night. Oliver Finney and former-Cod Mikael Mandron put the hosts two goals to the good and even though Mason Burstow pulled one back ten minutes from the end, it wasn’t enough.

Head Coach Stephen Crainey spoke to the press ahead of his side’s away trip to face Charlton Athletic at The Valley on Saturday. Here is what he had to say in his interview:

“They’re a tough side, it’s going to be a tough game. They’ve got big support and have a big stadium so it will be good for the lads to go and test themselves against them. We’re in good form and will go there with confidence at the same time. Every game in League One is tough and we’re looking forward to the challenge.

“It’s been a positive week, beating a team near the top of the league in Rotherham helped with that. The training has been nice and bright, but that normally comes with winning games of football, and we want to continue that vein of form that we’re in – hopefully, we can back that up at Charlton.

“I’m content with the group at the moment, the games come thick and fast in League One and we want to try and get some freshness in the group, we’ve got a three-game week next week which will be testing for the squad and I’m sure everyone will be utilised in that sense.”
