Charlton Athletic vs Rotherham United: Preview and Predictions

Charlton Athletic vs Rotherham United
England – League One
Date: Monday, 2 April 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: The Valley (London).

Charlton Athletic will host Rotherham United in the 41st round of English League One on Monday afternoon. Both sides are fighting for their place in the promotion playoffs and we should be able to spectate a very interesting match.

The hosts managed to break their four-match winless run with two straight victories in the last two rounds. They are currently 8th placed team being two points below the promotion playoffs zone. Lee Bowyer’s side spilled too many points when playing at home pitch lately and in the last five matches in front of their crowd they managed to celebrate only once. Charlton Athletic should be looking to improve their defensive work in the finish of the season, and the attacking line should keep up with good displays. Home side needs to keep their performances at high level of they want to get in the top six zone.

Away side is the 4th places team in the league, but their recent form is not promising at all. They are lucky to have collected enough points not to slip down from the top six, but in the last five matches they’ve booked only one victory. Michael Smith and his teammates in the attacking line have been very productive in front of the oppositions’ goal this season and managed to neutralize a bit poor record of their teammates in the back. Rotherham United have been putting pretty good performance at away grounds where they managed to pick up eight wins. The visitors need to get back on winning track, otherwise other clubs could endanger their promotion playoff spot.
