Will Karlan Grant score tonight?

Charlton fans have a chance to renew their acquaintance with Karlan Grant when Huddersfield visit The Valley tonight. Former players have a habit of scoring against us.

Grant has been directly involved in 59% of Huddersfield's 22 league goals this season (11 goals, 2 assists), the highest ratio of any player in the Championship.

Huddersfield are currently 21st in the Championship, but two places above second from bottom Charlton in the form table. They have won two, drawn two and lost five away from home.

The Addicks are without a win in eight matches, while the Terriers have gone five games without a victory. This is the first league meeting between Charlton and Huddersfield since January 2016, a 5-0 win for the Terriers at the John Smith's Stadium.

Huddersfield have lost just one of their past five visits to Charlton in all competitions (W2 D2 L1), winning their most recent game there in September 2015. Charlton are winless in eight league games (D2 L6), losing the past three in a row. They last lost four consecutive league games back in March 2017.

Huddersfield are winless in their past five league games (D2 L3), having been unbeaten in the seven before that (W4 D3) as they benefited from a new manager effect.

Charlton have used more different players (28), and made more changes to their starting XI (57) than any other Championship side this season, reflecting our injury problems. In a further blow, Lee Bowyer has admitted that Lyle Taylor's minutes tonight will be 'limited': Can't chuck him in

CAFC Facts and Stats have pointed out that 'anything less than three points this evening will see the Addicks go nine games without a league win and be on a par with the club's worst league run since 28th November 2015 - 12th January 2016 when they also went 9 without a win under the stewardship of Karel Fraeye.'
