Charlton Athletic vs. Southampton

The Valley

26 December

1.00pm

Saints Alive


After enlisting the help of fans to make The Valley safe on Thursday, local referee, Phil Crossley, gave the pitch the thumbs up on Friday morning. A bitterly cold Christmas night will have to be negotiated so do check before setting off on Sunday.

Phil Parkinson will likely revert to his favoured 4-4-2 formation. It has been a really strange December for Charlton, they will have played just three times in the previous thirty days, all in a five day period, with just one League fixture played all month.

Southampton lost at home to Brentford in their last match and their inconsistent home form is a concern to Nigel Adkins.

A tough game for the Addicks if Saints hit form. Rickie Lambert will be a threat, as will tricky midfielder, Adam Lallana.

Vital Quotes:

Charlton Athletic Team News:

Phil Parkinson is likely to bring Francis back in place of the impressive Carl Jenkinson. The team will probably have a fairly familiar look about with Benson and Anyinsah spearheading the attack.

Player to watch: Therry Racon

Midfield dynamo.

Southampton Team News:

Nigel Adkins will be hoping Lee Barnard will be able to play some part.

Player to watch: Adam Lallana

Supplies the bullets.
