From the opposition

Charlton manager Lee Bowyer is expecting a tough contest at The City Ground as his side look to bounce back from defeat against Stoke City on the weekend.


“It’s going to be tough,” said Bowyer. “They are not in third place for nothing.

“When we played them at our place I think we surprised them. We should’ve beaten them, I watched the game back yesterday. We were better than them on the night.

“We know we’re capable of doing that, it’s just a case of getting the weekend out of our system and going again. We have to try and win those individual battles more – because a lot of games are won or lost in midfield."

Tickets are extremely limited, with large areas of the ground already sold out and single seats only available in the Trent End and Peter Taylor Stand.
