For the second week running a fellow relegated team are our opponents, a team whose relegation was confirmed at the Valley last season. Deon Burton scored a hat-trick in that game as Norwich felt how we had been feeling for virtually the whole campaign.
The Canaries' side has been given a real overhaul since then, while the Addicks have only added a few to last year's squad. It would seem our way of doing things is working better.
Paul Lambert's men were pretty unlucky in their 2-1 defeat to MK Dons on Monday, conceding a peach of a free-kick from Jason Puncheon - a summer target for Charlton - and a controversial penalty. They are sure to be fired up for Saturday but with a lot of injuries, they could be there for the taking.
In other news, Chris Dickson has finally gone on loan but to Bristol Rovers and not Gillingham as expected. Parky said the reason being that the Pirates have the finances to offer us some much-needed money should they want him permanently. Guess the takeover's not close then.
