After consecutive wins, Charlton Athletic finally have the chance to build some momentum and end their League One season strongly.

In the last two games they have enjoyed two comfortable victories, starting with a 4-1 win over Morecambe, before beating Cambridge United 2-1, and are now 11th in the table.

Remarkably, a win on Saturday (March 25) would match their longest winning run in the league this season, which is just three. 

They have managed that twice before, starting with a stretch between October 11-22 and then again between January 1-14, despite losing to Manchester United in the Carabao Cup between these dates.

This highlights a complete lack of consistency in their season, but fortunately they can look ahead to completing the season and enjoying a rebuild, potentially under new ownership, in the summer.

There are nine games left in the season for Charlton, starting with Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday. Last time out they drew 1-1 thanks to Jesurun Rak-Sakyi equalising just a minute after Anis Mehmeti’s opener.


Richard Chin, an academy graduate, will go into the game fresh from signing a new contract at Charlton, which sees him stay until the end of next season.

The 20-year-old midfielder received a glowing assessment from manager Dean Holden.

He said: "He's a good, young player with a bright future ahead of him, I'm pleased we've got him for another year.

"I'm looking forward to watching him develop as there is plenty more to come from him."
