Another derby challenge

Charlton face another derby challenge at The Valley tonight, but one with less significance than that at Millwall. Alan Curbishley will, however, presumably be accompanying the Cottagers in his role as technical advisor.

However, our record against Fulham is also poor. Fulham won the earlier meeting this season 3-0 at Craven Cottage in October. Fulham are unbeaten in the last seven meetings in all competitions, winning four. Charlton's last win was 2-1 at The Valley in the Premier League in December 2004. However, Charlton are unbeaten in the last four meetings at The Valley, winning two. Fulham's last win there was 1-0 in the Premier League in May 2003.

Rhoys Wiggins is said to be nearing fitness. Chris Solly is out with his red card. Fulham are trying to get Snotty Parker fit after illness.

Charlton have fallen back to 4th in the form table after their defeat at Millwall, while Fulham are fifth from bottom in both the form table and the league. Fulham lost their local derby 1-4 to Brentford on Saturday and were booed off the pitch.

Odds are: Charlton 11/8, Draw 12/5, Fulham 2/1.

Just want the season to finish now ---- watch out for a striker joining possibly over the summer I have been told by several people we are tracking rsc lens striker Gulliaume I here a bid of around 4m is being prepared clubs are also sniffing around him and waiting on our first move on him so whats everyones opinions of this player?could he be the next yann?.

On yann if Bournemouth go up in the summer I think yann could be offloaded I would love see him back as he lives in Greenwich so it be locally for him next season it be a superb signing I am very confident for the summer I think Charlton will make some good signings
