11 November 2016

Town will be looking to put on a show in-front of the Sky Sports cameras when they host Charlton Athletic at The County Ground on Saturday (12pm Kick-Off).

Charlton, on the other hand, are unbeaten in their last six outings in all competitions and will be looking to keep that run going on Saturday.
