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 7, a worringly large 14 have been leaked at the other end.

Southampton's away form is none too clever either, coming away with three points on 3 occasions, but drawing 1 and losing 2. The Saints's have scored 8 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 10.

Charlton Ath. are stuck down in the relegation zone of Coca-Cola Championship with a return of just 16 points from their 19 games thus far. Southampton are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 20 points from 19 matches.
