Another tough test today for injury ravaged side

In my first season supporting Charlton in 1953-4 West Bromwich Albion were a team to be feared and indeed they finished second behind Wolves. However, we did beat them 3-2 at the Hawthorns and drew 1-1 at home.

Birmingham media have picked up the mood of foreboding among Charlton fans with no recognised centre forward: Addicks fans forecast a tonking

CAS Trust try to look on the bright side of life by emphasising that the FA Cup result gives no guide to what may happen today: Hemed's moment?

Charlton have lost just one of their last 14 home league games against the Baggies. Albion are unbeaten in their last four league games against Charlton, since a 2-1 top flight defeat at The Hawthorns in September 2005.

Albion have lost only once in their last six away league trips to London, winning three of them. The Baggies have only lost twice in 26 league games in 2019-20 - the least in the Championship. It matches their two defeats in 26 games in 1901-02, when they were promoted to the top flight as champions.

I will be happy if we get a point.
