Analysis: West Brom have passed yet another test
That’s because, for the majority of the game, Albion were comfortably the more dangerous side – with Grady Diangana particularly bright.

Time and time again the West Ham loanee tricked his way past his marker before hitting the byline and picking out a team-mate with a cross.

The first time he did it, in the eighth minute, he found Filip Krovinovic.

But instead of shooting first-time, the Benfica loanee took a touch before firing at goal – with that delay allowing Ryan Shotton to make an outstanding block.

Had Krovinovic taken it first-time – and scored – it would have been interesting to see how events would have unfolded against a Boro side low on confidence.

But they survived. And they did so again when Diangana also laid on chances for Jake Livermore and Matheus Pereira.
Albion would normally expect to covert a couple of the chances they created – particularly the ones forged by Diangana.

Sorry if this has already been covered, but do we have a recall option for Diangana in Jan? It sounds like he's really kicked on and could give some of our current midfield a lesson in turning up for a game.

Weekend’s Fixtures:

Sead Haksabanovic

Sead played 45 minutes as Norrköping laboured to a 1-0 win over relegation-threatened Kalmar. He was withdrawn at half-time with the game still goalless. With just 2 games remaining, Norrköping will almost certainly finish 5th.

Next Match: Sun 27th October vs Haecken (a)

Martin Samuelsen

Martin played the full match as Haugesund lost 3-1 at league-leaders Molde.

Next Match: Sun 27th October vs Stroemsgodset (h)

Nathan Trott

Nathan was named Man of the Match as Wimbledon beat Portsmouth 1-0 to move [temporarily] out of the relegation zone.

MATCH REPORT:
"John Marquis should have opened the scoring in the 18th minute. Marcus Harness' pass carved open the Wimbledon defence, leaving Marquis one-on-one with goalkeeper Nathan Trott, but the striker pulled his shot wide."

LIVE TWEETS:

41 - Nathan Trott receiving treatment after a challenge by John Marquis, who was booked.
42 - Thankfully, Nathan Trott is back on his feet.
43 - Corner is claimed by the Pompey keeper and the visitors fashioned a chance at the other end, but a fine save by Trott to deny Harness.
67 - Relief for Wimbledon as Trott's clearance strikes Pompey sub Ellis Harrison, but bounces just wide.
86 - Trott gets down well to deny Ben Close. Still 0-0 here.
REACTION - “For me, that’s the best performance. We stayed in the game with our three centre halves and our keeper," said Glyn Hodges.
FT - A deserved ⁦@FansBet Man of the Match award for ⁦Nathan Trott⁩, who received a bottle of Champagne from match sponsors after the last-gasp win against Pompey.
FT - Man of the Match Nathan Trott was also selected in the @TheLeaguePaper team of the day.

Next Match: Tues 22nd October vs Burton (a)

Jordan Hugill

Jordan played 28 minutes to help QPR win 3-2 at Hull. He was introduced with the scores tied at 1-1.

Next Match: Tues 22nd October vs Reading (h)

Josh Cullen

Josh played as Charlton beat Derby 3-0. He assisted the second goal with a corner and was named in the whoscored Championship team of the week.

MATCH REPORT:
"While the goalscorers were all brilliant, it was a real team performance with Darren Pratley, Josh Cullen, Jake Forster-Caskey and substitute Sam Field all particularly impressing."
"The Addicks best chance to make it 2-0 before the half fell to Cullen who was beautifully fed by a first time pass from Gallagher after Leko had won the ball back in the Derby half. Roos was out quickly though to smother Cullen’s effort behind for a corner."
"Sarr doubled the Addicks lead in the 48th minute when he was at the back post to head in a deep Cullen corner."

LIVE TWEETS:

34' CLOSE!! Cullen played in one-on-one, but he's denied by a brilliant last-ditch save from Roos.
48' Cullen's corner delivery from the left is met by the head of Sarr and it's in the back of the net! GET IN THERE!

Next Match: Weds 23rd October vs Bristol City (a)

Grady Diangana

Grady played as West Brom won 1-0 at Middlesbrough to stay top of the Championship. His run to the byline and cross was eventually turned in for the only goal of the game.

MATCH REPORT:
"At the other end, Matheus Pereira attempted a spectacular overhead-kick from Grady Diangana's cross but Darren Randolph was equal to it."

LIVE TWEETS:

42’ Still goalless in the North East. We got through a spell of Boro pressure to create a few more opportunities, with Diangana going close from Pereira's corner.

Next Match: Tues 22nd October vs Barnsley (h)

Dapo Afolayan

Dapo played 32 minutes as Mansfield came from 0-2 down to draw 2-2 at Forest Green.

Aji Alese

Aji played 23 minutes as Accrington beat league-leaders Ipswich 2-0. Both sides were reduced to ten men for the final 12 minutes of the match. Accrington will have a central defender suspended for their next 3 matches, so Aji may get his chance at a run in the side.

LIVE TWEETS:

67 - Opoku is now replaced by Alese for Stanley.
85 - The visitors are currently dominating possession but Stanley’s defence are remaining strong.

Next Match: Weds 23rd October vs Peterborough (a)

Cullen's Charlton form has been noticed by West Ham who eye January re-call

Image
Charlton are bracing themselves for the possibility that Josh Cullen will return to West Ham in January.

The on-loan midfielder has impressed in his second loan spell at The Valley and has apparently got the attention of the Hammers’ hierarchy.

Influential in the promotion winning campaign last season, Cullen has carried his form into the Championship helping the Addicks to seventh in the league, just four points off top spot.

Midfield is an area where Charlton are relatively blessed with numbers and quality, Cullen however has played every minute of the 11 games since returning, highlighting the importance within the side.

The 23-year-old Irish international came through the Hammers Academy and it was thought this season he would remain with the East London outfit and fight for first team football.

Cullen admitted the decision was made by Manuel Pellegrini to send him back out on-loan at the 11th hour however, and having ties at The Valley he opted to team back up with Lee Bowyer, a big admirer of his.

West Ham’s indifferent form this season has seen question marks raised over big money signings like Pablo Fornals and Felipe Anderson and whether they are capable of the physicality of the Premier League.

Those fears and Cullen’s form have alerted Pellegrini and his staff to possibly having the solution already on their books.

Cullen’s loan deal has clause allowing his parent club call him back between the 1st and 14th of January, and with the midfielder harbouring huge ties with his boyhood club it’s a call you’d expect him to be willing to answer.

Obviously this would be a huge blow to Charlton, possibly not regarding their survival but for any ambitious hopes they had of getting into the top six.

Charlton travel to Bristol City on Wednesday.

Tuesday Fixtures:

Nathan Trott

Nathan played as Wimbledon's winning run ended with a 1-0 loss at Burton.

MATCH REPORT:
"The Dons started slowly at the Pirelli Stadium with Burton dominating and it needed Nathan Trott to stay alert early on. The on-loan West Ham keeper did well to hold a searching cross from Nathan Broadhead early on and that early warning was not heeded by Wimbledon, as Burton pressed forward in numbers. Trott was required again in the eighth minute when he reacted well to deny Liam Boyce. Broadhead, who was all-action in the early stages, then produced a free-kick that had Trott scrambling across to his right, but the ball flashed just wide."
"At the other end, Wimbledon needed Trott to be alert to prevent Burton’s quick breakaway from bringing the ultimate reward, the young keeper tipping a shot from Ryan Edwards wide."

LIVE TWEETS:

2 - Nathan Trott does very well to hold a cross.
8 - Good save by Trott to deny Liam Boyce. All Burton early on.
24 - Another save by Trott to deny Broadhead.
37 - Fine save by Trott to deny Ryan Edwards.

Next Match: Sat 2nd November vs Lincoln (h)

Jordan Hugill

Jordan returned to the starting line-up and was back on the scoresheet as QPR drew 2-2 with Reading. It was his tenth start of the season (7 goals). He was cautioned for some late handbags - his fifth booking of the season. He will be suspended for Monday's fixture with Brentford.

MATCH REPORT:
"Hugill replaced Bright Osayi-Samuel in Rangers' starting XI, with QPR reverting to a 4-2-2-2 formation as a result."
"Rangers' maiden effort arrived six minutes later. Wells stood up a cross for strike partner Hugill, whose looping header lacked the pace to trouble Reading custodian Rafael Cabral."
"Kelly's long ball was initially ****ed on by Hugill and, when Wells in turn played the ball back into his path, the West Ham loanee's 18-yard blast skipped up into the net via a deflection off Royals skipper Liam Moore."

LIVE TWEETS:

14' Better from #QPR. Nahki Wells digs out a cross for Jordan Hugill, but his header isn't powerful enough to test Cabral.
40' Double chance! Ryan Manning's free-kick drops for Toni Leistner, but his effort's blocked and Jordan Hugill can only put the rebound over.
50' Unlucky, boys! Ryan Manning and Jordan Hugill combine neatly but can't quite find Nahki Wells. Bright start to the second half.
59' RANGERS BACK IN FRONT! Nahki Wells and Jordan Hugill combine, with Hugill's shot deflecting past Cabral. QPR lead again!
90+1' Booking apiece. Jordan Hugill and Miazga both shown yellow after clashing.

Nice goal:

Next Match: Sat 2nd November vs Leeds (a)

Grady Diangana

Grady played 67 minutes as West Brom drew 2-2 at home to Barnsley. His withdrawal came with the Baggies trailing 0-2.

MATCH REPORT:
"Grady Diangana's strike hit the side-netting in first-half injury time, although the hosts found themselves 2-0 down at the interval and looking for a route back into the encounter."

Next Match: Sat 26th October vs Charlton (h)

Dapo Afolayan

Dapo played 23 minutes as Mansfield lost 1-2 at home to Salford. His introduction came shortly after the visitors took a 2-0 lead.

LIVE TWEETS:

67' We make our first change of the night as Afolayan replaces MacDonald.

Next Match: Sat 26th October vs Wallsall (a)

QPR 2 Reading 2 - Honours even as Rangers are pegged back twice
QPR were pegged back twice as they were held to a 2-2 draw with Reading at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

Nahki Wells' opener was cancelled out by George Puscas before Jordan Hugill's strike put Rangers ahead, only for Sam Baldock's tap-in to hand each side a point.
Hugill was presented with a half chance when Wells found him with a floated pass but Hugill could not get enough power behind his header allowing Rafael to claim.
Rangers were presented with two chances when Reading failed to clear a free-kick as Toni Leistner had an effort well blocked before Hugill fired over.
QPR started the half encouragingly but the first effort went the way of Reading as Baldock fired over from distance.

But Mark Warburton's side regained the lead on 59 minutes when the two strikers combined as Wells found Hugill with his header, whose shot at goal took a wicked deflection off Liam Moore to beat Rafael.
QPR: Kelly, Rangel, Leistner, Barbet, Manning, Cameron, Scowen, Chair, Eze, Wells, Hugill

AFC Wimbledon soak up Pompey pressure – so that made 1-0 victory all the more satisfying

Image
AFC Wimbledon (3-5-2): Trott 7, Thomas 8, Delaney 7, Kalambayi 6, Wagstaff 7, Wordsworth 7, Sanders 7, Pinnock 6 (Hartigan 77), Osew 7, Pigott 8, Forss 5 (Appiah 85). Not used: Tzanev, Stabana, Guiness-Walker, McLoughlin, Madelin.

AFC Wimbledon back into League One bottom three – and with no chance of escaping it quickly
The Dons were under siege for much of the first half and had already squandered a number of chances when hesitancy in the visitors defence let in David Templeton ,who fired wide when he should have put Burton in front.

The same player made no mistake just after the half hour mark when he fired past Nathan Trott to hand the Brewers a deserved lead which Ryan Edwards could have doubled had Trott not got a hand to his low effort and turned it past the post.

MATCH REPORT: Run ended as Salford City win on first ever visit to Mansfield Town
Mansfield Town’s four-game unbeaten run was halted by a disappointing 2-1 home defeat by Salford City tonight.
But it was 2-0 to Salford on 65 minutes as Sweeney failed to clear a Jervis cross from the left and Rooney met it with a sweet volley that dipped home over Logan.

Stags quickly sent on extra firepower with Afolayan on for MacDonald.
STAGS: Logan; Gordon, Pearce, Sweeney, Benning; MacDonald (Afolayan 67), Bishop, Shaughnessy, Khan; Cook, N. Maynard. Subs: Olejnik, Preston, Tomlinson, Hamilton, Knowles, Smith.

West Brom 2 Barnsley 2 - Report and pictures
Albion battled back from two goals down to earn a point in a thrilling 2-2 draw with Barnsley.
After a quiet afternoon in the North East, Filip Krovinovic came out of the side with Kyle Edwards the man to come in.

It meant Matheus Pereira was able to take over duties in the number 10 role with Edwards starting on the right-wing and Grady Diangana on the left in Bilic's 4-2-3-1 formation.
Bilic's men did come close to pulling a goal back before the interval - with Diangana cutting inside before seeing a low drive saved by the keeper.
Albion were now effectively playing a 4-2-4 formation with Hal Robson-Kanu coming on to replace Diangana and join Austin up front - with Krovinovic and Pereira the widemen.
Albion (4-2-3-1): Johnstone, Furlong, Bartley, Ajayi, Ferguson (Townsend 46), Sawyers, Livermore, Edwards (Krovinovic 46), Pereira, Diangana (Robson-Kanu 67), Austin.

Do you agree with our player ratings for Mansfield Town's players in the home defeat by Salford City?
12. DAPO AFOLAYAN (SUB) 6

The West Ham loanee livened Stags up as a sub for MacDonald for the last quarter of the match but could not find a way through the solid Salford defence.

Josh Cullen

Josh played as Charlton lost 2-1 to a late goal at Bristol City.

LIVE TWEETS:

20' Cullen's delivery causes problems, but Bentley eventually claims it.
50' Gallagher is fouled by Massengo wide left. Cullen will swing in the free-kick.
51' Great ball! Pearce gets there, but Bristol City hack it clear.
83' Nasty two-footer from Pereira on Cullen. The Bristol City man earns a yellow card and the Addicks have a free-kick along the left-hand side of the box.
84' Cullen, I think goes for goal, but it bends out for a goal-kick.

Next Match: Sat 26th October vs WBA (a)

Aji Alese

Aji made his full professional debut as Accrington conceded four in the second half and lost 4-0 at Peterborough (the highest-scoring team in the top 4 divisions), who move to the top of League 1.

REPORT: Bristol City 2 Charlton 1 - 98th minute heartbreak at Ashton Gate
Josh Brownhill’s 98th minute effort broke Charlton hearts as Bristol City came from behind to steal all three points at Ashton Gate.
The resulting corner saw a goalmouth scramble where somehow the ball stayed out of the Charlton goal, from which they countered an struck truck through Bonne on 65 minutes.

Josh Cullen picked out the forward who beat Bentley to the ball on the edge of the box before slotting home from a difficult angle, notching his third goal in as many games.
Charlton: Phillips, Oshilaja, Lockyer, Pearce, Forster-Caskey (Solly 35’), Cullen, Field (Pratley 31’), Kayal (Aneke 72’), Gallagher, Leko, Bonne (SUBS: Maynard-Brewer, Aneke, Pratley, Solly, Sarr, Oztumer, Davison)
https://www.newsshopper.co.uk/sport/179 ... hton-gate/



Player Ratings: Bristol City 2 Charlton 1 - Phillips and Bonne star in defeat
Josh Cullen 7

Possibly the most influential of the middle three as he kept ticking the game over and cutting out a dangerous and pacey Robin attack.
https://www.newsshopper.co.uk/sport/179 ... ar-defeat/



Charlton's game management cost them at Bristol says Bowyer
“Our honesty at times can cost us, I’m not sure that’s the right thing to say but it’s the truth because other players get touched go down, not tonight but in general, they feel a knock and fall on the floor.

“My players are too honest, they don’t do that, and it cost us tonight because we should’ve fouled.

“It comes with experience, Conor (Gallagher) is a 19-year-old kid, this is his first loan.

“Josh Cullen is young, they need to learn if someone goes past you what to do

“Because Darren Pratley would’ve fouled, because of experience.

“They’re young and inexperienced, but they’ll learn, that’s how you learn, when it keeps happening to you, you think this is what you’re meant to do.

“It happens at the top all the time, we need to learn how to see out games.”

Today's Matches

Josh Cullen

Josh scored a stoppage-time penalty as Charlton drew 2-2 at league-leaders West Brom. His saved shot lead to the first goal and he was also cautioned for a foul in the final seconds of the match.

MATCH REPORT:
"The Addicks levelled on the hour mark in a move that started down the Charlton right with Solly. The wing back’s cross to the back post was cleverly laid off by Purrington to Cullen whose first time driven effort was brilliantly blocked by Kyle Bartley. The ball popped up to Bonne just inside the six yard box who headed across Johnstone, who was in no place to save it after diving across goal in an attempt to keep Cullen’s shot out."
"Cullen was so close in the 79th minute when he saw an effort go just wide after once again being set-up by Purrington."
"The Addicks won a late penalty when Sarr was fouled in the box by Semi Ajayi and Cullen stepped up to cooly despatch the spot-kick as the two sides shared the spoils."

LIVE TWEETS:

37' Charlton threaten again through Oztumer, but the referee stops play for a West Brom free-kick after Cullen makes a perfectly good tackle in the box.
60' He just can't stop scoring! Cullen's drilled shot is blocked, it loops up in the air, the keeper is out of the equation and Bonne nods it home!
79' CLOSE! Purrington pulls back for Cullen whose effort is inches away.
90+2 Sarr is pushed in the box and we have a big chance here! Cullen to take.
90+4 He sticks it in the top corner!!! DESERVED EQUALISER!

Next Match: Sun 3rd November vs Preston (h)

Grady Diangana

Grady made his tenth start of the season, playing 88 minutes as West Brom drew 2-2 at home to Charlton. He was mistakenly sent off by the referee who did eventually rectify his error.

MATCH REPORT:
"Grady Diangana was somehow denied by a superb save from Addicks keeper Phillips from close range."
"And matters went from bad to worse for the Baggies just seven minutes later as Ferguson was shown red for a challenge on Solly, despite referee Matthew Donohue initially dismissing Diangana."

LIVE TWEETS:

58' Three big chances since the interval. Phillips curled over from the edge of the box, Diangana had a shot saved following a brilliant move and Furlong was denied when one-on-one.

Next Match: Mon 4th November vs Stoke (a)

Dapo Afolayan

Dapo came on in stoppage time as Mansfield won 2-1 at Walsall.

Next Match: Sat 2nd November vs Colchester (h)

Aji Alese

Aji played as Accrington lost 1-0 at home to Gillingham.

LIVE TWEETS:

13 - The referee awards the visitors a free-kick inside the Stanley half following a soft challenge from Alese.
36 - The ball comes into the box but Alese can only direct his header wide of the target.

Next Match: Tues 29th October vs Liverpool U23 (h) - EFL Trophy group stage

Charlton's Bowyer doesn't expect West Ham and Chelsea to re-call Cullen or Gallagher in January
Lee Bowyer does not believe Josh Cullen or Conor Gallagher will be re-called to their parent clubs in January.

Both players have impressed at The Valley this season and speculation has mounted that West Ham and Chelsea are toying with the idea of re-calling Cullen and Gallagher respectively.

Cullen, 23, has been an ever present for the Addicks this season and has maintained the form that earned him praise in his season long loan at The Valley last season.

Gallagher, 19, likewise has impressed in midfield, scoring five goal in his first season in professional football.

Such has been the progress under Bowyer and his coaching staff, the Addicks chief is confident both will remain at the club until the end of the season.

“I can’t see it,” he said.

“For Josh. he had a great season last season, now we’ve gone a step up and he’s doing well now again.

“For me I can’t see why West Ham would call him back now, they’re doing well and it’s not like they’re struggling.

“They wouldn’t call him back to be in and around the squad, that’s not good for his development.

Championship: West Bromwich Albion 2 - 2 Charlton Athletic - report

Image
Josh Cullen rescued a dramatic point in injury time as Charlton twice came back from behind to draw with 10-man West Bromwich Albion.

In an action-packed clash at the Hawthorns, the midfielder converted from the penalty spot two minutes into stoppage time after substitute Hal Robson-Kanu grabbed what looked to be the winner.
Charlton’s efforts in finding an equaliser were rewarded after 60 minutes, though it came with an element of luck. Bartley did well to block Josh Cullen’s long-range effort but Bonne headed home the rebound.

The increasingly feisty affair was engulfed in drama when Nathan Ferguson’s reckless foul on Chris Solly reduced West Brom to 10 men. Referee Matthew Donohue initially sent off the wrong player, Grady Diangana, prompting confusion, before he correctly brandished Ferguson with a straight red.

Charlton pushed for their first lead of the game, and nearly did just that when Cullen fired narrowly past the post after being teed up by Purrington in the box.
Again, Charlton were forced to respond to going behind but were given a lifeline when Semi Ajayi was adjudged to have fouled Sarr in the box following repeated crosses into the Baggies’ box. Cullen stepped up and sent Johnstone the wrong way in stoppage time.
Charlton team: D. Phillips; Solly, Lockyer, Pearce (Davison, 88), Sarr, Purrington; Pratley (Kayal, 87), Cullen, Gallagher, Oztumer (Aneke, 74); Bonne.

Charlton's Josh Cullen on his penalty in 2-2 West Brom draw

Image
The pressures of taking a 94th minute penalty at 2-1 down to clinch a point is why Josh Cullen plays the game.

Seconds after referee Matthew Donohue pointed to the spot for a Semi Ajayi foul on Naby Sarr, Cullen without hesitation put the ball under his arm claiming the responsibility of giving Lee Bowyer’s men the point they deserved.

Sending Rams keeper Sam Johnstone the wrong way, the 23-year-old West Ham loanee fired to the roof of the net before celebrating in front of the always noisy traveling fans.

“It’s football, they’re the moments you’re in the game for,” he admitted.

“I enjoy being under that bit if pressure and it was nice to be able to put it away and make sure we got at least appoint which is what we deserved.”
Image
Cullen’s style of spot-kick my differ from the brilliantly nonchalant run-up favoured by usual penalty taker Lyle Taylor, but the result was effectively the same even if Cullen admits he doesn’t do his research on the keeper.

“Yeah, it was something we decided as a team that I’ll be the taker the day before the game.


“Fortunately one came along and I put it away!

“Lyle’s normally got the responsibility, so I haven’t watched videos of the keeper or where he goes, I go on instinct, pick your spot, and it worked ok.”

So for a man who’s only scored two goal for the club in 42 appearances, his first coming away at Gillingham in April, does he set himself a target for the season?

“There’s no target!”

“But it’s always nice to score, if I can get on it more than I have been I’ll be over the moon, but I just want to keep doing my job, perform as well as I can and I’ll be happy.”

Cullen will be in action next Sunday when Preston visit The Valley.

Charlton's Josh Cullen on confidence boosting West Brom draw

Image
osh Cullen admitted it was looking like a case of deja-vu for Charlton at West Brom on Saturday.

Down to ten-man following Nathan Ferguson’s red-card at The Hawthorns, the Baggies looked like stealing all three points as Hal Robson-Kanu scored with ten minutes to go, echoing comparisons to Wednesday night’s 2-1 injury time defeat to Bristol City.

That was until Cullen’s 94th minute spot kick salvaged a point for Bowyer’s men after Naby Sarr drew a foul from Semi Ajayi.

“It seems a strange thing to say, but it can almost seem harder to play against ten men,” the 23-year-old said.

“When they go down to ten men, they up their game.

“We had more time to come back into it compared to Bristol when we had one minute of stoppage time left after they scored.

“We knew we had time to get back into, we had to stay patient and chance would come, and it did.

“We’re delighted.

“To come here, a massive club, to get a point is not to be sniffed at, we’ll take it and look forward to playing at home next week.”

'To get four points is a decent return'

Macauley Bonne struck for the fourth game in a row, taking his tally to five for the season, to cancel out Matty Phillips’s opener before Robson-Kanu and Cullen got in on the act.

The point ends a busy week for Charlton against three of the fancied teams in the division, and it lifts them up to ninth in the league, a good weeks’ work according to Cullen.

“On paper, Derby at home, then Bristol and West Brom away, to get four points is a decent return against the sides chasing promotion.

“As a group it says how good we are because we are a little disappointed to not get more from the week.

“But every game we play against these sides that will be up there or there abouts, and we are matching them, it’s growing our confidence.”

Cullen has been an ever present since his arrival on-loan from West Ham, playing every minute.

He’s followed up a successful season loan last term in League One with the Addicks with an equally impressive start this season in the Championship, drawing praise from many onlookers, and raising suggestions his parent club may re-call him in January.

“It makes it easier when you’re playing alongside good players, and Conor (Gallagher) and Prats (Darren Pratley) are good players.

“I feel like I’ve slotted into Championship football nicely, I feel comfortable and that I can compete at this level.

“I work hard in training every day, and it’s getting rewarded on the pitch.”

Charlton welcome Preston to The Valley on Sunday.
