Six pointer at the New York Stadium

Charlton will still be without Ademola Lookman for tomorrow's six pointer against Rotherham. Latest press reports value him at £6m, but he may be staying at The Valley for now.

Rotherham have won five of their last eight (D3) against Charlton - although all those victories came between 1981 and 1983. Charlton's last league win in Rotherham came at Millmoor in April 1963 - they haven't won any of their 10 previous visits (D3 L7). The Millers hold just one win in their last five Championship matches (D1 L3).

They have, however, acted more wisely than Charlton in the transfer window, as indeed have Bristol City and other relegation rivals. It has been confirmed that Tony Watt has gone on loan to Blackburn with a fee agreed for a permanent move in the summer: Tony Watt

Charlton haven't won in the Championship since November 21st; going 11 games without a victory now. This is the second time they've managed to go 11 matches without winning this season (also August to November).

Rotherham have kept three clean sheets in their last four league games at home, but did concede three to QPR last time out. The Addicks have gone eight Championship matches without keeping a clean sheet, only Fulham are on a longer run currently than them (17).

The odds don't favour Charlton: Rotherham 5/6, Draw 5/2, Charlton 10/3.

Charlton's struggles are no surprise to Igor Vetokele who is facing relegation for the first time in his career: Igor Vetokele
