Shrewsbury currently sit 10th in the Sky Bet League One table, six points and two places above the Addicks.

Steve Cotterill’s side will be looking to bounce back on Saturday having fallen to a 2-0 defeat at Ipswich Town in their last outing a fortnight ago.


Charlton and Shrewsbury have gone toe-to-toe on 30 previous occasions, with the Addicks winning 10, Salop 11 and the remaining nine clashes resulting in draws. 

The Addicks claimed a 1-0 victory in the reverse fixture at Montgomery Waters Meadow thanks to Jes Rak-Sakyi's 69th-minute strike.


Robert Madley is the man in the middle for Saturday’s clash against Salop. The official last refereed a Charlton fixture in October 2022 - a 1-1 draw against Oxford United in SE7.

Madley will be assisted by Rob Smith and Robert Hyde, while Ian Cooper is the Fourth Official.
