Coming into this fixture, Charlton Athletic are in inspired form with an unbeaten run of seven games in League One with wins in their last six games. Although, in Round One of the FA Cup earlier this month, they were eliminated by Plymouth Argyle. Despite this upset, the Addicks are sat in fourth place with 22 points after 10 games played, and are only three points of the league leaders Peterborough, who have played 12 matches.
Gillingham will be hoping that their last fixture against Crewe Alexandra in League One is the turning point in their campaign as previously they had lost five games in a row. As of now, the Gills are in 16th position on 13 points after 11 matches played and are sitting four points off relegation.
In the last six matches in League One for both teams, these scorelines have occurred 11 of out 12 times with only Charlton’s most recent fixture against Fleetwood Town being the exception. Five times Gillingham have lost either 1-0 or 2-0 in the last six occasions showing that this is a very viable result for the Addicks.
Currently, Charlton odds to win either 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1 against Gillingham, is priced at 9/4.
