A sporting treble?

Leamington pulled off a last minute victory against Cambridge City on Saturday. Last night Coventry Blaze continued their march towards the Elite League championship with a 5-1 victory over Sheffield Steelers (in a match in which a lino was attacked and a Steeler sent off after a brawl in which a Coventry player was injured). Can Charlton complete a sporting treble over three days against Bristol Rovers tonight?

Saturday's results went quite well for us. Admittedly, Norwich won after going behind at Brighton and Leeds equalised in the 95th minute through Owen Goal. Some had predicted that the game between Stockport and Colchester was a foregone conclusion, but I predicted a draw on the Glynne Jones list and so it turned out to be. Supposedly in form Swindon recorded their third draw in a row, although Millwall continued their home form with a 1-0 win over mighty Exeter.

I'll leave team selection recommendations for tonight to others, although I would start with a 4-4-2. Rovers are recovering from the injury problems that have hit their form, but I am going for a 2-1 win for Charlton, although it has to be admitted that it could be yet another draw.

Paul May will provide his usual comprehensive match report.
