MATCH PREVIEW | Wigan Athletic v Charlton

Charlton head to Wigan on Tuesday evening looking to turn around their recent fortunes with no wins in their last four.

Although the recent form at home has been wretched, a somewhat prettier picture can be painted on the road with the Addicks losing just one of their last five away, winning three.

Wigan will be desperate for points themselves as they try to save their League One status. They currently sit second from bottom in the table with seven wins, six draws and 18 defeats from their 29 games.

Ryan Inniss remains the Addicks' only long-term absentee, while Jake Forster-Caskey and Alex Gilbey may also be missing having sat out of the last three games with hamstring complaints.

Darren Pratley will serve his two-match ban following his second dismissal of the campaign on Saturday, while Chuks Aneke will be available after his red card was overturned.

Charlton Boss Lee Bowyer: “We’re all working hard and we all want the same outcome here. We all want the same thing – to win games – and we’re trying.

“I’m trying, I’m trying to put the best team out there every time to win the game. I’m trying to get something going – but the players are low on confidence. The only way to get out of that is to win games – then it all changes very quickly. We’ve seen that in the past.

Wigan caretaker boss Leam Richardson: “The lads do deserve to be on the right end of the result [on Saturday] but they weren’t and despite disappointment initially that won’t last for long. I’ll make sure it doesn’t filter into the dressing room before they leave on the coach on the way home and we’ll all be ready and focused for Tuesday.”

Charlton and Wigan have squared off on 13 previous occasions with the Addicks and the Latics sharing five wins apiece, with the remaining three games ending in draws.

The reverse fixture in October saw Charlton earn a 1-0 victory thanks to Jake Forster-Caskey's free-kick.

Wigan won the last meeting at the DW Stadium 2-0 in September 2019. The Addicks' last victory at Wigan came in February 2015 when Frederic Bulot, Igor Vetokele and Chris Eagles all netted in a 3-0 win.

Sam Allison will take charge of proceedings on Tuesday evening. He has officiated 23 games this term, producing 66 yellow cards and one red.

He last refereed Charlton during the 2-0 victory at Northampton Town in October.

Allison will be assisted by Lisa Rashid and Thomas Harty with Steven Rushton as the Fourth Official.

The match will be played behind closed doors and Charlton supporters are reminded to maintain social distancing guidelines and to stay away from the stadium when the match is taking place.
