Recent respective form guides

Charlton Athletic will be hoping to improve on their poor home form, collecting just 4 draws from the last six contests. While Addicks have scored 8, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

Nottm. Forest's away form is none too clever either, unbeaten in their last six, consisting of three wins and three draws. The games have constituted a decent return of 12 goals for the Forest, and 8 goals against.

Charlton Ath. find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 26 games have yielded only 19 points. Nottm. Forest are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 24 points from 26 matches.
