MATCH PREVIEW: Charlton v Wolves

Overview
Wolves travel to The Valley on Tuesday evening to take on Charlton in their seventh fixture of the 2014/15 Sky Bet Championship season.

The Addicks are currently fifth in the league having taken 12 points from their opening six Sky Bet Championship games, defeating high-flying Watford 1-0 in their last outing at The Valley.

Yoni Buyens scored the only goal of the game just three minutes in, netting from the spot after Heurelho Gomes fouled Igor Vetokele.

Having taken 13 points from their opening six games, Wolves are positioned two places above Charlton in the Sky Bet Championship table. After securing wins over Norwich, Fulham, Cardiff and Blackburn, Wolves shared the spoils in a 0-0 draw with league strugglers Blackpool in their last outing at Bloomfield Road.

Both sides struck the woodwork but neither could find the breakthrough in what was a keenly fought encounter in Blackpool.   

Charlton and Wolves last met at The Valley in April 2013; Dorian Dervite opened the scoring for Charlton on the hour mark before Kevin Doyle equalised for Wolves just three minutes later. The home side went on to snatch victory in the dying embers of the game through a last-minute Jonathan Obika strike.
