Going down with the Franchisees?

It's a real six pointer at the cavernous stadium mk tonight as Charlton take on MK Dons. Some Addicks might feel that a win would strengthen the hand of Karel Fraeye in his search for a permanent posting at The Valley (in so far as any Charlton manager is now permanent), but we need the points in our survival struggle. The team also badly needs a confidence boost.

Four Four Two had what they described as the 21st century Millwall finishing 24th this season. Actually, they are the kings of blandness in terms of their support and much the same might be said of Milton Keynes itself. French rugby fans were appalled by the resigned acceptance by the inhabitants of its sameness when they were there recently.

The Franchisees are currently 20th in the table and the same position in the form table. With Hull fans turning out in force, they got over 15,000 to Saturday's game. Manager Karl Robinson put the 0-2 defeat of the home side down to one of the worst officiating displays the fans had ever seen, but reports suggested that the Franchisees lacked creativity in the final third. Sounds familiar. Does this mean a 0-0? Probably not. Either Simon Church or Diego Poyet will score against us.

Odds are: MK Dons 23/20, Draw 9/4, Charlton 21/10.



come on you reds
