SPIREITE SORTEE

20-Apr 21:45, by Ketts

It is the last away game of the season for the Addicks on Saturday.

Chesterfield's defeat at Scunthorpe on Monday condemned the Spireites' to relegation to League Two.‎

‎Whether Chesterfield's players are now mentally on the beach, or whether they will play with freedom now their fate is decided, remains to be seen.

The Spireites are on a dismal run of form at home. They have won just once in their last nine games at the Proact Stadium, lost five times, with three draws.

The form of top striker Ched Evans has been just as dismal, he has not scored in his last eleven appearances.

‎Charlton's 3-0 win over Gillingham on Monday virtually ensured their safety. Bury's draw at Bolton on Tuesday removed any lingering doubts about the Addicks' status.

They were rewarded by Karl Robinson with a few days off. With there being minimal training since Monday, barring injuries, the manager is unlikely to make many changes.

Robinson will be keen to end the season with two more wins to go into the next campaign with momentum.

‎The Add‎icks could look like this:

Rudd; Byrne, Bauer, Pearce, Dasilva; Botaka, Konsa, Crofts, Forster-Caskey, Holmes; Magennis.

Subs: Phillips, Teixeira, Ulvestad, Jackson, Aribo, Ahearne-Grant, Watt.‎

Charlton will go into the match as hot favourites, and anything other than a win would be disappointing.
