Match Preview | Charlton Athletic

22 April 2022

As the 2021/22 season comes to an end, Shrewsbury Town are on the road for their final away league game of the season on Saturday as they make the trip to southeast London to face Charlton Athletic in Sky Bet League One.

Salop come into this one off the back of their dramatic 3-3 draw at home to Doncaster Rovers on Monday whilst Charlton won 2-0 away to Cambridge United on Tuesday night.

With Town in 17th position and Charlton 13th in the league table, both teams will be playing for pride as they push for the highest possible finish at the end of the season. 

Salop are looking to do the league double over Charlton for the first time in their history after a stoppage-time goal by Dan Udoh secured a 1-0 victory at Montgomery Waters Meadow in November. Steve Cotterill’s side are unbeaten in their previous three league meetings with Charlton and last won at their ground back in the League One Play-Offs in 2018.

Name: Charlton Athletic

Founded: 1905 (116 years ago)

Chairman: Thomas Sandgaard

Record Victory: 8-0 vs Stevenage, EFL Trophy, October 2018

Record Defeat: 1-11 vs Aston Villa, Football League Second Division, November 1959

One to Watch: Jayden Stockley

In his first full season as a Charlton Athletic player, the 28-year-old has proven why the club decided to sign him on a permanent contract following an impressive loan spell in the second half of last season.

He’s the club's top goalscorer in all competitions with 16 goals and has been in great form in the league over recent weeks, scoring four goals in his last six league appearances, and will be Charlton’s go-to man on Saturday.
