Into the Lions’ Den
21 long years since we last beat our rivals just 3.7 miles up the road. That double in the 1995/6 season. The double. Can you imagine it?
Karl Robinson understands the significance of this game to Addicks, as does Andrew Crofts, although Robinson has never won at The Den either, he has had a lot less goes at it than recent Charlton managers.
Robinson needs this win and it will be a great way to kick start his Charlton managerial career, and he has a quick opportunity to put Saturday’s performance behind him. Mind you, so does Neil Harris. Robinson I would think will offer Foley and Chicksen a start.
My pre-match nerves are always on high alert before these games, and to add to that my son is attending his first ever Millwall v Charlton game. I hope he doesn’t have to witness as many disappointing afternoon’s and evening’s as I have over the decades!
