WATCH OUT FOR CHARLTON’S CHARGERS
WITH all the pre-match talk unsurprisingly centred around Watford, and what has really been going on inside Italian corridors, it’s all too easy to forget Charlton are knocking on the play-off door.
For a side so uninspiring to watch for much of last term, the Addicks are unbeaten and have crept up unnoticed into fifth.
They’re good at home, too – something they could not boast last term, despite surviving relegation back to League One.
Under Bob Peeters, they have direction. No big names, but a squad full of players ready to do battle with higher-pedigree opponents. The big Belgian has sculpted a side ready to surprise.
Derby County and Wigan – two of the big tips for promotion – have already found that out.
Add Watford to that list. It’s fair to say the Hornets had most of the ball, but the result? The same as when the other fancied clubs turned up.
“Yes, we may not have been spoken about too much, but I have trust in my players,” said Peeters.
