Recent respective form guides

Charlton Athletic's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Addicks have scored 6, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

Sheff. Utd.'s away form is none too clever either, picking up two good wins, but losing three, from the last six. While the The Blades have hit 4 goals, 9 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Charlton Ath. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 16 points from 17 matches. Sheff. Utd.'s total of 28 points from their 17 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Coca-Cola Championship.
