We catch up with Vital Charlton's Chris to ask him a few questions ahead of Saturday's npower League One clash at The Valley.
1. What has your start of the season been like?
It's been stuttering, the team has not been playing well. Their have been cameos when they have put together a decent 45 minutes but they have struggled for consistency.
2. What were your expectations before the season and have they changed now?
Most fans probably felt Southampton, Wednesday, Brighton & Huddersfield would be scrapping at the top but were optimistic of a play-off place. Now, we are HOPING, rather than expecting that we can finish in the top six.
3. What do you make of your manager, Phil Parkinson?
Two years under him now and it's hard to see any progress. He's a smashing bloke & everyone would like him to do well but it seems unlikely. His approach is often too cautious.
4. Who are yor danger men?
The main one is Kyel Reid who is currently injured. Striker Paul Benson has netted five in the last five games so is obviously on form & Lee Martin may come off the bench late on & is a tricky customer.
5. How has Akpo Sodje done since his move to The Valley?
He scored six times last season but has been largely on the periphery of the team since the move became permanent. Akpo is either very good or awful with nothing between.
6. If you could swap one player from Charlton with Wednesday, who would it be and why?
Pawel Abbott arrived as the target man in the summer but has struggled. The big focal point up front is almost a must in this division so I would swap Abbott for Neil Mellor.
7. What are your expectations of Wednesday this season?
Big name, big club & unless the financial problems are a distraction I would expect Wednesday to be in the top two.
8. What's your score prediction for Saturday?
You are very good on the road , score goals &, Brighton apart, Charlton are normally fairly solid at home. If the Addicks are not shell-shocked after the last home game a 1-1 draw would seem a good bet.
