A game without meaning

It's a pretty meaningless fixture against Leeds tomorrow and I would have thought that very few Addicks, even those who live in the north, will be making the journey. I must admit I am more interested in the Southern Premier League play off final on Monday when Leamington play at Hungerford Town.

Patrick Bauer and Reza are still unavailable and Stephen Henderson has a calf problem. Johnnie Jackson may start.

Leeds have failed to win in any of their last seven at home to Charlton (D5 L2), last winning in October 2000 with a brace from Mark Viduka and one from Alan Smith securing a 3-1 win for the Whites. Last year we drew 2-2 at Elland Road and the year before we won 1-0.

The Addicks have lost only one of their last 10 games against Leeds, winning four (D5).

Leeds, of course, have their own issues with owner Massimo Cellino whose eccentric decision-making has done nothing to revive the sleeping giant.

Odds are: Leeds 8/13 Draw 3/1, Charlton 17/4.
