PREVIEW: Charlton Athletic V Town

29 April 2017

Town will be looking to sign off the 2016/17 campaign with a win when they head to Charlton Athletic on Sunday (12pm Kick-Off).


The Reds will bring the curtain down on a hugely disappointing season tomorrow when they head to the Valley, with relegation to the Sky Bet League Two already sadly confirmed.


Like their guests, The Addicks also have nothing to play for although both sides will be looking to finish on a high.


A Morgan Fox own goal coupled with further efforts from Lloyd Jones and John Goddard handed The Reds all three points when these two teams last met at The County Ground in November 2016.


STAT ATTACK:


Town and Charlton have done battle on 60 occasions in all competitions and Athletic are able to boast the better head-to-head record with 27 wins to their name, compared to The Robins’ 15.

TEAM NEWS:


CHARLTON ATHLETIC - The Addicks have taken the unusual step of naming their Starting XI for tomorrow’s game already, with the likes of Andrew Crofts, Jake Forster-Caskey, Josh Magennis, Ricky Holmes and former Town star Nathan Byrne all set to start.


TOWN - The Reds will be without Skipper Nathan Thompson (heel) for tomorrow’s game, while they could opt to hand debuts to the likes of Jesse Starkey and Scott Twine with relegation already confirmed.


A WORD FROM BOTH CAMPS:


Karl Robinson, Charlton Athletic Manager: “I’ve named a team early a few times before and from that I think you can see that I want to win the game. I want to put a strong minded-side out and we want the three points.


“It’s a strong side and it gives people an indication of what we are expecting from the game on Sunday.”


Luke Williams, Swindon Town Head Coach: “We have got another game and we owe it to the players to prepare them. We didn’t have any extra time off - we’ve had a normal week.


“We must give players the chance to show how much they want to be part of the plans for next season. Sunday is a trial game in many ways.


“There’s a chance that Jesse Starkey could play and show us what he can do. He can go on the pitch, relax and show he’s ready.


“It is very important that the players show on Sunday that they are ready for a fight in League Two next season.”
