Our prediction for this League 1 match:
There will be firefowrks when Charlton Athletic and Sunderland face each other at the Valley in what is expected to be a real football festival. The Red Robins kicked off the new League One campaign with a 2-0 win over Crewe, but they were anything but impressive in back-to-back losses to Doncaster and Lincoln. The capital club aim to give fans something to cheer about on Matchday 4, and they are likely to leave their hearts on the field in Saturday’s football match.
The Black Cats, on the other hand, have been showing signs of improvement of late. Following a 2-0 win at Oxford United, Sunderland defeated Peterborough 1-0 at the weekend, with the team proving their worth in big matches. Even though Chris Maguire is likely to miss the Charlton game with injury, away win should be considered as the Red Robins do not seem to be on top of their game at the start of the season.
