Charlton v. Millwall preview

A Tipster writes: Lee Bowyer has been clearly been trying to engineer a siege mentality into his squad, and it appears to be working out well thus far. The Addicks have kept three consecutive clean sheets since the return despite the absence of talisman Lyle Taylor, while Aiden McGeady looks to have been a shrewd signing though [less sure about that] and there remains plenty of life left in Charlton.

Given their struggles this season it might surprise some to note they are only 10 points behind Millwall in the Championship table, and they have to have a chance in this match.   [If only, given our record against them].

The Lions have won just two points from their three matches so far since the resumption – drawing with Barnsley and Swansea, and while they did well enough against Swansea, the other two were pretty poor performances.

At 5/2 Charlton are too long here for me. There remains plenty at stake for both sides and I think Charlton will soak up the pressure and look to win the game on the break. A 1-0 wouldn’t be an enormous surprise to me, so if you fancy an interest at 7/1, its probably not the worst bet.    [I'd take a 1=0].
