MATCH PREVIEW | Charlton v Peterborough United

Charlton will hope to make it back-to-back home victories when they host Peterborough United at The Valley in Sky Bet League One on Tuesday night (7.45pm).

The Addicks got off to the perfect start in SE7 last time, when they defeated Shrewsbury Town, and since then they have contested a draw at Accrington Stanley.

The Posh, meanwhile, visit The Valley having won all three of their league matches so far. They beat Luton Town 3-1 at the weekend and currently sit at the summit of the league table.

Arsenal loanee Krystian Bielik could be in line to make his home debut, having made his Addicks bow at Accrington Stanley in midweek. Jason Pearce, Ben Reeves, Tariqe Fosu, Billy Clarke and Jake Forster-Caskey are all sidelined. The match is likely to come too soon for Igor Vetokele, who returned to training on Monday.

For Peterborough, Mark O’Hara and Siriki Dembele are both doubts, having come off injured against Luton Town on Saturday.

Charlton boss Lee Bowyer: “Peterborough are on nine points but I don’t see why we can’t, with our own crowd behind us, go and win the game. We have to be ruthless. That’s our problem at the moment, we’re not ruthless in front of goal. The good thing for me is that we are getting into those areas and it’s going to come.”

Peterborough boss Steve Evans: “We will probably look to make changes, but we will keep that under our hat. We will go there and try and win the game - that is our mentality.”

Charlton and Peterborough have met 21 times in the past, with the Addicks winning on nine occasions. Posh have won seven times while there have also been two draws.

Last season at The Valley, Karlan Grant netted a late, late equaliser as the Addicks scored twice in injury time to rescue a point. Highlights of that match are available to watch on Valley Pass.

For 2018/19's match previews, we will be dipping into the Valley Pass archive to look back on a previous encounter against Charlton's opponents. Tonight, we remember a 5-1 victory for the Addicks against the Posh in April 1994.

James Linington will oversee tonight’s match at The Valley.

So far this season, he has officiated three matches – three of which were in the Championship – where he has brandished five yellow cards and no reds.

Linington last refereed the Addicks for last season’s Emirates FA Cup tie at AFC Wimbledon. He will be supported by linesmen Dean Treleaven and Mark Jones and fourth official Dean Whitestone.

Academy graduate George Lapslie stars in Tuesday’s edition of Valley Review. He opens up about breaking into the first team and his impressive start to the season.

The North Stand’s free entry supporters’ bar will be open as usual, with its doors opening from 5.30pm.

All season ticket holders and Charlton fans with match tickets are welcome to visit the Fans’ Bar before and after the game and supporters can purchase food and drinks in there.

On the East Street menu for Tuesday are slow roasted beef brioche baps, served with horseradish sauce, while jumbo pork sausages with onions in French bread will also be on sale.

Chicken nuggets and chips with a Fruit Shoot will be available for children and, elsewhere, chicken balti pies, and cheese and onion pies will be on sale.
