Charlton at the top of the table is enjoying an undefeated run after playing six matches in the league. Having lost the last two away games in the fixture, the Boys in Blues will certainly feel the heat of Pep Clotet’s words before their bout in London.
Birmingham will be visiting the promoted team from the League One with hopes to get back into the winning trails.
The Addicks will be testing their chances after a three-year absence in the league. It will be an easy win for the host and the visiting side will have to try something new to turn the tables.

Also, Charlton has managed to keep the lead in the last two meetings with the guest and in three of their last five home games. Moreover, they have a good scoring spree in the league with 11 goals from six games and have conceded only five goals in the meantime.
