MATCH PREVIEW | Charlton v AFC Wimbledon

Charlton will secure a fourth win in their last five Sky Bet League One matches if they can beat AFC Wimbledon on Saturday afternoon.

After a difficult middle part of September, Karl Robinson’s side have bounced back by winning three of their last four games, which has included away victories at last season’s play-off clubs Fleetwood Town and Bradford City. 

At The Valley, Charlton’s form remains equally impressive. The Addicks have won seven of their last nine on home soil, stretching back to last season.

The Dons will provide tough opposition at the weekend, however. They were beaten by Plymouth Argyle last weekend but before that had collected six points from their previous two encounters.

Karl Robinson revealed at his pre-match press conference that he is likely to have Mark Marshall available to him after he recovered from an injury.

Lewis Page could be involved in a first-team squad for the first time this season but Harry Lennon remains sidelined. 

For Wimbledon, Harry Forrester is a doubt with a groin problem and Egli Kaja is also touch-and-go with a hamstring complaint. Kwesi Appiah and Jon Meades are injured.

Saturday’s match-up will be the third meeting between Charlton and AFC Wimbledon since the Dons’ reformation in 2002. 

Last term, Wimbledon came from behind to win at The Valley while the two sides shared a 1-1 draw at Kingsmeadow in February of this year.
