Our prediction for this Championship match:
Charlton Athletic will be aiming to put an end to their five-game winless run in the Championship when they host Barnsley at the Valley on Matchday 30. The Red Robins were not in action at the weekend, meaning that tired legs are unlikely to prove to be a big problem for the team in Saturday’s relegation six-pointer.
The Tykes are on a three-game losing run in all competitions ahead of the trip to London, and given their shaky defence, we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Charlton’s party at the Valley. In their last meeting at Charlton’s home ground the Red Robins outplayed the Tykes 2-0, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself. You should bear in mind that Lee Bowyer’s troops are eyeing their sixth home win of the season.
