The Trophy Tussle

Key Stats
– Crawley Town have made a surprising comeback, defying the predictions of many pundits.
– Charlton Athletic, after enduring a rough patch, have found hope under caretaker boss Jason Pearce.
– Alfie May’s exceptional form has been the beacon for Charlton, scoring 4 in just 6 appearances.

Despite a turbulent beginning, Crawley Town have embarked on an unexpectedly bright start to their season. Pundits previously earmarked them as the prime contenders for relegation from League Two. Nevertheless, manager Scott Lindsey must surely be pleased with the grit his team has shown. Drawing parallels to last season, when they narrowly missed out on advancing from the group stage of the Football League Trophy, Lindsey will surely have his eyes set on bettering that record.

On the other side of the pitch, Charlton Athletic have faced their share of challenges, both on and off the field. With ownership upheavals affecting team performance and dampening spirits among the fan base, the dismissal of Dean Holden, after four straight League One losses, marked a tumultuous period for the club. But with caretaker boss Jason Pearce steering the ship, a glimmer of hope was seen when they bested Fleetwood Town 2-1, a victory underpinned by Alfie May’s stellar performance. Aiming to overcome their previous early knockout in this competition, the Addicks are hungry for more.

A Tactical Look:

As the game approaches, there are tactical nuances both managers will consider. Lindsey might mull over a potential lineup shuffle, particularly in the forward positions, with Klaidi Lolos hoping for a start after his recent substitution appearance. In the goalie’s gloves, Luca Ashby-Hammond could be the chosen one for Crawley.

Contrastingly, Charlton’s upcoming fixture against Wigan Athletic is postponed, which grants Pearce the luxury to field a strong lineup. Still, star striker Alfie May might be spared, considering the crucial role he plays in their league campaign. This opens doors for the ex-Arsenal frontman, Chuks Aneke, to make a significant impact.

Stat Attack:

To truly understand the fabric of this matchup, let’s delve into the numbers.

  • Crawley Town:
    • Best Players (BettingTips4You Expert Rating): Laurence Maguire (7.50), Dion Conroy (7.18), and Will Wright (7.17).
    • Goal Threat: Danilo Orsi-Dadomo leads with 2 goals, followed by defenders like Laurence Maguire, each contributing a goal.
    • Season Dynamics: With an average rating of 6.77, they’ve scored 7 but conceded 12 in 6 matches. Their ball possession stands at 53.7% indicating a balanced approach.
  • Charlton Athletic:
    • Best Players (BettingTips4You Expert Rating): Alfie May (7.43), George Dobson (7.32), and Chem Campbell (7.30).
    • Goal Threat: Alfie May tops with 4 goals, with Daniel Kanu chasing with 2.
    • Season Dynamics: Holding an average rating of 6.93, they’ve netted 7 but let in 9 goals in 6 games. A slightly dominant ball possession of 55% speaks of their controlled gameplay.


  1. Match Outcome: Given the recent form and home advantage, we could lean towards a draw. Crawley’s tenacity and Charlton’s rejuvenated spirits make this a balanced encounter.
  2. Correct Score: Based on the goal patterns, a 1-1 draw seems plausible. Both sides have demonstrated defensive vulnerabilities, making it likely for both to find the back of the net.
  3. Goalscorer Prediction: Danilo Orsi-Dadomo of Crawley has shown promise and seems likely to strike. While for Charlton, given Alfie May’s potential absence, Chuks Aneke emerges as the potential scorer.
