Charlton have a 100% home record winning both their previous encounters although they haven`t met at the Valley since Christmas Day 1957.
The fact Rovers have never won at the Valley shouldn`t faze them has they have recently recorded first ever wins at Sheffield United and Blackpool and a first ever home win against Sheffield Wednesday.

Charlton have been playing a bit better recently, it will be interesting to see if Mark Wilson can keep the returning Richie Wellens out the team.
