Charlton - Crew

Asian Handicap
Pick: Charlton -0.75
Odds: 1.78
Stake: 1

Match date: 27/04/2021

Very important match for hosts tonight where Charlton faces Crewe at The Valley. Charlton's fate remains in their hands with four games to go as they sit in eighth position, two points off of both fifth and sixth place which grants them a playoff spot.

Since the appointment of Nigel Adkins as manager following Lee Bowyer’s decision to leave the Valley for Birmingham City in March, Charlton has been showing good performances because I thought they would struggle with a new manager, but Nigel Adkins is a very experienced manager as he has managed teams like Hull, Sheffield United, Scunthorpe and Southampton and Charlton is continuing their battle for a playoff place.

Last match out Charlton suffered their first defeat after ten games when they were defeated by an in form Peterborough and tonight Charlton will be looking to bounce straight back from the defeat when they face Crewe.

Crewe, meanwhile, sit comfortably in 15th position in their first season back in the third tier and already have secured their place in the division. So tonight they have only pride to play for and the results are evident. They have picked up just one victory in their last five matches.

For Crewe, long-term absentees Oli Finney and Josh Lundstram have returned to training, but won't be available tonight. Beside those two players, all other players are available for selection.

On the other hand Charlton will have an important absence in Diallang Jaiyesimi as he was picking good form lately. Other than that it should be mentioned that Ryan Inniss is likely to be available despite being withdrawn late on against Peterborough United on Saturday, while Ian Maatsen is set for a return to the squad.

To sum up, I believe that Charlton will win this match because the motivation factor is on their side. They are fighting for playoffs while their rivals play for nothing. So motivation is big on hosts. Moreover lately they seem in very good form and I expect them to win tonight.
