Will Charlton strike oil?

I suppose that the Crown Oil Arena is the kind of venue Charlton fans have in mind when they complain about being in League One.  I don't like it either but it is likely to be our home for another year.  

Whether it is Rochdale's remains to be seen.  They have pulled up to 18th in the table, but are still below Charlton in the form table.

Over the years we have played Rochdale 19 times, winning 10, drawing four and losing five. Goal crazy Rochdale have only won once at home this season, but they have drawn five times and lost four.   At home they have scored 16 goals and conceded 25.   

Charlton have won more times on the road than at home, seven wins compared with four, scoring 18 and conceding 14.

I think this is an occasion for an attacking formation and my Badger League prediction was a 3-2 win for Charlton.

One thing that can be said with confidence is that a 0-0 draw is unlikely:

Happy Birthday to Jason Euell!
