Peterborough vs Charlton (By: Saconex)
England League 1
Peterborough (6) vs Charlton (4)
Peterborough are placed 6 points behind todays opponent with total record of 13-8-7 and 47-38 in goal difference. They have to get back winning in order to keep contact with the other playoff placed teams. Last match ended with a 4-0 loss away vs Luton Town (2), and only 3 of last 12 league matches ended with 3 points (3-5-4). No reported missings for the hosts.
Charlton looks solid and are coming from 2 straight victories, 0-3 away vs Shrewsbury (18) & 1-0 vs Accrington Stanley (14) last time out. Total record is 16-8-5 with 47-31 in goal difference. Although they are pushing for a promotion spot their away record isnt really impressive: 6-2-6. The guests are missing striker Lyle Taylor after his red card last time out. Also defenders Lewis Page & Jason Pearce + striker Vetokele will be out here.
* Peterborough won the reverse fixture by 0-1 back in August
* Both matches last season ended with 4+ goals total
* Peterborough average total goals per match: 3.04. Charlton: 2.69
I think chances are good for this match to end with goals both ways. The hosts will go for the win, and they are normally making problems vs Charlton, as they did last season with the nice 4-1 win. On the other side, Charlton will probably get their chances as well, and they are capable of getting goals scored for sure. So overall I consider the hosts as small favourites, but I think that betting on goals as the best choice here.
