MATCH PREVIEW | Charlton v Wigan Athletic

The Addicks' final match of the season at The Valley sees them go against Wigan Athletic in a vital encounter in SE7 (12.30pm).

After the gut-wrenching end to Wednesday's draw with Birmingham City, Charlton will have their sights set on all three points that could potentially see them safe come 5pm.

A victory for Lee Bowyer's men, coupled with a draw between Hull City and Luton Town, will see them safe with a game to go. However, a win over the Latics may be enough despite results elsewhere with the Latics' pending points deduction factored in.

Paul Cook's side come to south London in good form, off the back of an extraordinary 8-0 win over struggling Hull on Tuesday, but there is plenty of reason for the Addicks to remain confident, with eight points taken from their seven games since the restart.

Charlton will be without Darren Pratley for the last two games of the campaign after picking up a groin injury at Birmingham on Wednesday.

Bowyer will check on the fitness of Alfie Doughty after the youngster picked up a knock to his ankle in midweek, while Andre Green could be available again after an injection on a toe complaint.

The visitors will be without defender Daniel Fox who will serve the second game of his three-game suspension.

Charlton Boss Lee Bowyer: "I’d rather us stay up on merit – we have earned that,” said Addicks boss Bowyer. If teams get points deductions then they get them. That will happen, I have no doubt. But we’ve got two games left and I still believe we’ll get enough points to stay in the division.”

Wigan boss Paul Cook: "Every game is a must win game for us at the moment. We’ll go to Charlton and whatever the results are now, we will see it out to the end of the season and we’ll just keep doing our best."

Charlton and Wigan have faced off on 11 previous occasions with the Addicks winning four of those games, the Latics five and the other two ending in draws.

The reverse fixture saw Wigan claim a 2-0 victory at the DW Stadium back in September and Charlton's last victory over the Latics at The Valley came in August 2014 - Jordan Cousins and Franck Moussa scoring in a 2-1 win.

Gavin Ward will be the man in the middle on Saturday afternoon. He has taken charge of 30 games so far this season, dishing out 105 yellow cards and three reds.

It will be the first time Ward has officiated the Addicks this term - his last match at The Valley was the play-off semi-final victory over Doncaster Rovers in May 2019.
