Charlton v Reds: Betting Preview

14 April 2014

Charlton v Barnsley

Barnsley must go all out for victory at fellow strugglers Charlton as they bid to upset the odds and maintain their Sky Bet Championship status.

Saturday’s 1-0 defeat at Bolton saw Danny Wilson’s drop to the bottom of the table and you can now get 5/1 with the competition’s title sponsor that they avoid the drop.

Danny Wilson’s men trail Tuesday’s opponents by five points and the Addicks also have a game in hand but victory for the Tykes would raise hopes of a dramatic late twist to the season, dragging the likes of Blackpool, Doncaster and Birmingham within their sights ahead of the busy Easter programme.

Barnsley are 13/5 for victory at the Valley with the draw available at 12/5 and Charlton, who slipped back into danger with a 3-0 defeat at Brighton on Saturday, on offer at 21/20.

The sides drew 2-2 at Oakwell back in August when top scorer Chris O’Grady bagged a brace to put the Tykes seemingly in charge before Charlton hit back to earn a point with two second half goals. It’s 14/1 for a repeat of that outcome on Tuesday.

O’Grady is 10/1 to bag another double and 6/1 favourite in the visitors’ ranks to bag the opening goal closely followed by Tomasz Cywka and Nick Proschwitz at 7/1.
