Charlton

Their last outing

Charlton lost 2-1 on Wednesday night against Bristol City in their latest fixture.

Macauley Bonne fired Charlton ahead at Ashton Gate after the hour mark, but Bristol City levelled ten minutes later through Famara Diedhiou. With four minutes left to play Diedhiou was sent off, however despite being a man down, Josh Brownhill scored in injury time to win the game for the Robins.

CHARLTON: Phillips; Pearce, Oshilaja, Lockyer; Kayal (Aneke 72), Foster-Caskey (Solly 36), Cullen, Field (Pratley 33); Gallagher, Bonne, Leko.

Substitutes: Maynard-Brewer, Davison, Sarr, Öztümer.

In the dugout

After rising through the youth ranks at Charlton, Lee Bowyer went on to enjoy an impressive playing career before taking charge at The Valley in March 2018 - 24 years after he made his senior debut for the club in 1994.

In his first campaign as Addicks boss, Bowyer guided Charlton to promotion via the League One Play-Offs after finishing third in the table.

In the summer, Bowyer signed Baggies duo Sam Field and Jonathan Leko on season-long loans to help his team tackle the higher demands of the Championship.

One to watch

Macauley Bonne arrived at The Valley in the summer, signing from Leyton Orient, where he averaged a goal every other game to fire in 23 goals in 46 games to help the O’s to secure promotion back to the EFL after a season in the National League.

The Zimbabwean international has netted four goals in his last five games for Lee Bowyer’s team.

Our last meeting

The last time Albion faced Charlton was in a 1-1 draw at The Valley. Greg Halford put the Addicks ahead on the half-hour mark, but just before the interval Kevin Phillips levelled for the Baggies.

The away draw would kickstart an eight game unbeaten run for Tony Mowbray’s men as they marched on to win the 2007/08 Championship title, lifting the trophy at Loftus Road on the last day of the season.

Our man to watch

Bilić’s men came from two goals down to draw against Barnsley on Tuesday night - a comeback Matheus Pereira was central to.

Firstly, the Baggies’ Brazilian playmaker took the corner which found its way into the Barnsley net for Albion’s first, before meeting a Conor Townsend cross with an impressive header to restore parity.

Man in the middle

The referee for Saturday’s fixture will be Matthew Donohue, and he’ll be assisted by Robert Hyde and Timothy Wood - with Nik Barnard acting as the fourth official.

Matthew Donohue is yet to officiate an Albion game, having watched over his first Championship fixture in August. Since then, he has took charge of seven second-tier fixtures, and will make his Hawthorns debut on Saturday.

Match Reports

Albion 2 Charlton 2

26 October 2019

Ten-man Albion were denied by a contentious 94th-minute penalty as they were held to a dramatic 2-2 draw against Charlton Athletic - extending their unbeaten home record to 14 matches in the Sky Bet Championship.

Josh Cullen slotted home from the spot deep into injury time to level matters for the Addicks after Semi Ajayi was adjudged to have pushed Naby Sarr in the penalty area.

Baggies substitute Hal Robson-Kanu looked to have curled home an 81st-minute winner when he sent the majority of the 25,356 present into raptures, Albion's biggest attendance of the season to date at The Hawthorns.

Fit-again Matt Phillips had earlier fired the Baggies in front from close range after just 10 minutes, registering his fifth goal of the season.

Yet Macauley Bonne headed an equaliser on the hour mark before teenager Nathan Ferguson saw red in the 67th minute for a challenge on Chris Solly.

Slaven Bilić's Baggies, bursting with spirit and determination, remain top of the table despite back-to-back home draws, and remain unbeaten on home soil since February.

Phillips, who missed the last two matches with a minor shin injury, marked his return with the game's opening goal, converting into the top corner from close range after captain Jake Livermore's delightful ball played in Matheus Pereira down the left.

Kyle Bartley came to Albion's rescue shortly afterwards to deny Macauley Bonne with a last-ditch sliding block.

Tom Lockyer diverted Conor Gallagher's 26th-minute shot over the crossbar while Chris Solly volleyed narrowly off target as the visitors looked threatening.

Phillips tested namesake Dillon Phillips at the other end before Sam Johnstone came to Albion's rescue with two great saves, denying Gallagher and Naby Sarr.

Darnell Furlong then headed just off target to draw an eventful first half to a close with Albion boasting a narrow advantage.

The hosts flew out of the blocks at the start of the second half, Phillips firing over when well placed before Grady Diangana was somehow denied by a superb save from Addicks keeper Phillips from close range. 

Furlong was next to be thwarted as the Baggies looked to double their advantage.

Yet it was Charlton who levelled matters with 60 minutes on the clock, Bonne heading home from six yards after Bartley's block to deny Josh Cullen had inadvertently looped up into the air.

And matters went from bad to worse for the Baggies just seven minutes later as Ferguson was shown red for a challenge on Solly, despite referee Matthew Donohue initially dismissing Diangana.

Head Coach Bilić turned to Conor Townsend and Hal Robson-Kanu off the bench.

Cullen fired narrowly wide as the encounter entered the closing stages, before sub Robson-Kanu curled into the far corner with nine minutes remaining.

However, Cullen ensured it finished honours even when he slotted home an injury-time penalty, although Robson-Kanu fired over when sent through in the 95th minute.

Albion: Johnstone, Furlong, Ajayi, Bartley, Ferguson, Sawyers, Livermore, Phillips (Townsend 71), Pereira, Diangana (Brunt 88), Austin (Robson-Kanu 71).

Subs: Bond, Hegazi, Krovinović, Edwards.
