GILLS AND FEVER

16-Apr 06:51, by Ketts

The penultimate home game of the season will be staged at The Valley on Easter Monday.

The Addicks will play their penultimate home game of the season against Gillingham on Monday.

Charlton have never really had a consistent run of form all season. The win over Southend gave Karl Robinson's team the chance to end the season with three home wins, and build momentum for next season.

To do that, they have to beat Gillingham and Swindon, two sides that are below them in the table.‎

‎Frustratingly, the Addicks have achieved good results against the top sides, it is against the lower placed teams that they have struggled.

At Coventry, Robinson fielded an unchanged team for the first time since he arrived at The Valley in November.

Though it was far from a vintage performance at the Ricoh, the manager may again resist the temptation to tinker.

Charlton could look like this:

Rudd; Solly, Bauer, Pearce, Dasilva; Byrne, Konsa, Crofts, Ulvestad, Holmes; Magennis.

Subs: Phillips, Teixeira, Jackson, Forster-Caskey, Aribo, Botaka, Watt.‎

‎Brett Huxtable will make the trip from sunny Devon to take charge of the game.

Though Gillingham are in desperate need of the points, Robinson will be disappointed if his side do not win this one.‎
