League One sees two sides who came into the season harbouring hopes of promotion to the Championship face off as Charlton Athletic meet Bolton Wanderers.
Charlton Athletic currently sit 13th in League One with five wins, three draws and five losses from thirteen games so far this season.
It's been a wholly underwhelming showing from the Addicks so far this campaign with the London club having entered the season as one of the sides most tipped to mount a serious promotion push, but so far their reality has been much more sobering with Michael Appleton's side looking short of being a dominant side in this league.
They enter this game in solid form overall having won two, drawn two and lost one of their last five matches, with their sole defeat coming in their most recent game with a 3-1 loss away at Lincoln City.
The loss was the club's first under manager Appleton, who was appointed in early September, and they can have few complaints after being clearly outplayed by their opponents.
Charlton have, though, been excellent at the Valley of late having won four and drawn one of their last five games on home soil so they'll be confident of making immediate amends in front of their own fans.
Bolton are undeniably one of the better sides in this league but with home advantage on their side a result is very much on the cards for Charlton here.
Bolton Wanderers currently sit 4th in the EFL Championship with eight wins, two draws and three losses from thirteen games so far this season.
Like their opponents, but to a lesser extent, Bolton's season has not really gone to plan thus far with Ian Evatt's side having entered the campaign hopeful of sealing an automatic promotion spot back to the Championship and while they have started to now turn things around they had been falling well below that mark for most of the campaign.
Their form now, however, is very good as they come into this game having won four and lost one of their last five league games, the most recent of which was a 4-2 win over Wycombe Wanderers.
Goals from Paris Maghoma, George Thomason, Eoin Toal and Aaron Morley were enough to complete a dominant victory away from home and they now enter this game having won their last two games on the bounce.
This is a tricky game for Bolton given Charlton's strength at home but we expect it to be a high, cagey encounter with little more than one goal in the result either way.
For our Charlton vs. Bolton prediction, we're going for a 2-2 draw.
