📝 Match Preview: Charlton Athletic (H)

2 February 2023

Exeter City return to home action this Saturday when we welcome Charlton Athletic to St James Park.

After two away matches on the trot, it's back to home turf for the Grecians as we look to build on last weekend's 2-0 away win at MK Dons, thanks to Jevani Brown's brace. This will be Charlton's first league visit to EX4 since January 2012, though they did visit in 2017 for a League Cup tie, which the London side won 2-1. 

They will want to get back to winning ways, having been beaten 2-1 at home to Bolton Wanderers live on Sky Sports at the Valley. 

Gary Caldwell's Thoughts

"The pitch is in incredible condition which meant we could train on it," Gary said. 

"There were a number of reasons. We went through some stuff with the players in a classroom environment that we can't do at the training ground, so we utilised the space at the stadium, but most importantly it was for the new players to get a feel for their new surroudnings and getting used to the pitch so they are ready for Saturday."

Turning attentions to Saturday's opponents, Caldwell expects a similar challenge to the one the Grecians faced last weekend.

"They play the same as MK Dons, a 4-3-3. They are a little more direct and with dangerous wide men, and we have to be prepared out of possession. I know their manager really well and he's made a big impact since he came in."
