Charlton start their Championship programme with an away trip to hospitable Birmingham City on August 18th. They then face the Foxes at home three days later: Fixtures
It's a challenging start to the season. If CAFC win the CO Cup against Leyton Orient then they will have to play 6 games in 18 days. However, injuries and suspensions are less of a problem at the start of the season.
Charlton entertain Crystal Palace on 15 September and visit the New Den on 1 December with the return fixture in March. They face a truly massive game on 22 December when they have the honour of playing at Hillsborough, the home of Sheffield Wednesday.
The last home game of the season should provide any needed points when the Addicks entertain Bristol City at home on May 4th.
