Match Facts & Stats
Charlton’s last trip to Molineux in 2003 ended in a 4-0 victory for the Londoners. That game saw Paolo Di Canio make his Addicks debut.
In the past four meetings between the sides Charlton have won all four keeping three clean sheets.
Wolves 1-2 Charlton
Maybe a little optimistic but Wolves are not the strongest of sides at home and Charlton must take something from sides like this if they are to gain automatic promotion.
The draw against Barnsley will also have damaged confidence and Pardew’s men will be looking to brush this result out of their minds.
