EMIRATES FA CUP PREVIEW | Charlton v Truro City

Charlton will kick-off their Emirates FA Cup campaign on Sunday afternoon when they host Truro City at The Valley (2pm). 

The Addicks, who have won five of their last six matches, will head into the game as big favourites to progress into the second round. 

They sit 74 places above Truro in the Football League ladder but the National League South side will be determined to continue what has already been a historic cup run for them.

By beating Hampton & Richmond in the final qualifying round, Truro became the first Cornish club in 48 years to reach the first-round proper. 

Backed by a healthy following, they will not want their FA Cup run to end in SE7, so Karl Robinson’s Addicks will have to be on their game to get through.
