Brentford vs. Charlton Athletic

The Valley

We'll Bee There


The games are coming thick and fast right now and Charlton will be bidding for their second away win in London this season.

After Brentford's midweek defeat Charlton will be facing the bottom side in League One for the second week in a row. It is also the start of three away games in a week for the Addicks, Tuesday's JPT game at Milton Keynes will be followed by next Saturday's long haul to Plymouth.

Phil Parkinson was glowing in his praise for the side after Tuesday's late victory over MK Dons and will be hoping for another three points at Griffin Park. Consistency is the name of the game and Charlton have squandered valuable points in recent weeks.

Hopefully Parkinson will now focus on the team rather than making the officials the scapegoats. He was still complaining about the penalty decision against Dagenham after Tuesday's game, overlooking the fact that his side regained the lead in added on time but still could not see the game out against their lowly opponents.

In that game Charlton turned in a sparkling first-half performance but seemed to lose confidence after the break. Tuesday's game was a dour affair against unadventurous opponents. If the team can consistently turn in performances somewhere between the two, they will be a force to be reckoned with. Hopefully Paul Benson will now be utilised in his more normal position and be supplied with some decent service.

A win should be achievable.
