Peterborough vs Charlton
English League One
Date: Saturday, 26 January 2019
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: ABAX Stadium (Peterborough).
Peterborough will continue their streak of challenging fixtures on Saturday afternoon when Charlton Athletic come to visit ABAX Stadium. The hosts will thus have a final opportunity to catch up with teams above them in a potential battle for the top-two finish and an automatic promotion to the Championship football at the end of the season.
Posh currently hold the 6th position and are six points shy of 4th-placed Charlton after losing two of past three league outings. Second-placed Luton Town are nine points away. However, the top-six finish and a place in promotional play-offs is well in jeopardize given 7th-placed Doncaster are just one point behind.
Nevertheless, the head coach Steve Evans does not quite have plenty of reasons to be optimistic for coming into this tie. Posh suffered a tough 4-0 defeat away at Luton Town last weekend. They lost four of past six matches in all competitions failing to find the back of the net at all in these defeats.
Peterborough vs Charlton: Head-to-head
Charlton lead the head to head tie by two wins coming into their 14th meeting with Posh.
Peterborough were, however, much more successful in the most recent head to head history.
They won four and drew one of past five ties with the Addicks.
Peterborough vs Charlton: Prediction
The visitors will have a great opportunity to bring the negative head to head trend with Peterborough to an end here. They definitely head into the game as massive form favourites off the back of a thread of three wins and a draw in past four matches in League One.
Lee Bowyer can be thrilled with his men’s defensive efforts in the last couple of weeks. The Addicks did not concede a single goal in back-to-back wins over Shrewsbury Town (0-3) and Accrington Stanley (1-0). We’ll back the visitors not to lose as the main betting option at the odds of 1.57.
