Wednesday on Saturday

Many Addicks will be heading to The Valley tomorrow to celebrate the departure of Roland and to hope for victory against Sheffield Wednesday in the Katrien Meire Memorial Trophy.

Charlton will be looking to win consecutive home league games against Sheffield Wednesday for the first time since October 1988 at Selhurst Park. Sheffield Wednesday's 3-0 victory in their last meeting with Charlton in March 2016 ended a six-match winless run against the Addicks in all competitions.

Charlton are winless in their last six league games (D2 L4), last going longer without a victory in the EFL between November 2017 and January 2018 (a run of eight), in League One.

Sheffield Wednesday have won just one point from their last seven league visits to London (W0 D1 L6), failing to score in each of their last four visits to the capital.

Charlton have lost more points from winning positions (15) than any other Championship side in 2019-20, failing to win each of their last two in the competition despite scoring the opening goal in both games (vs Cardiff and Luton).

Each of Sheffield Wednesday's last six away league defeats have been by a one-goal margin, losing 2-1 in each of their last two away games against Blackburn and West Brom. During the week they drew 1-1 at home with Birmingham City.
