A look ahead to.....Tranmere

The next stop on Charlton's League One sojourn sees them head to Merseyside to take on former Addick John Barnes and his struggling Tranmere side. Rovers are in the lower section of the table having lost three of their opening four league matches and should present a good opportunity for another three points.

Barnes' men have failed to score in that trio of defeats and were comprehensively beaten 3-0 by Leeds last weekend, though they are unlikely to be the last team to suffer that fate.

The Whites have won twice this term though, 4-2 over Gillingham on day two of the season and 4-0 against Grimsby in the Carling Cup, so let's hope it's the non-scoring, not the free-scoring Tranmere we face on Saturday.

In addition, only Leeds had a better League One home record than Rovers last year and they did push Bolton in the cup midweek, so the encounter will not be as easy as it looks on paper. That said, if we control the midfield battle - as we ought to do against the majority of this division - the 100% winning record should remain intact.
