Addicks vs Yeovil Town

It's going to be a stiff test down at Huish Park this weekend.  Yeovil have played 8 games this year and have only lost once.  Despite their run of form, you could argue that the majority of the teams they have beaten, with the exception of MK Dons, have been in the lower third of the table.  They are however coming off the back of a win against rivals Plymouth Argyle, so they will have plenty of confidence going into the game, and you can bet their fans will be right behind them.

Being a West Country inhabitant it's a team I've seen a fair bit of over the years, and I've covered their games often for various South West publications.  They are a passionate lot and really love their football.  Terry Skiverton's got them on a great run.  They are a decent footballing side and will be a tough outfit to break down.

A couple of players to keep an eye on.  Their top scorer is Dean Bowditch who has spent most of his career thus far at Ipswich.  He can be tough to keep a handle on and has grabbed 8 goals so far this season.  Paul Huntingdon is another one to watch out for.  Former Clubs include Leeds United and Newcastle United, and he has just been nominated January's player of the month award.  A decent defender who also gets a few goals.

I'm looking forward to the game and have had my ticket burning a hole in my pocket for a while.  It will be interesting to see how many Addicks turn up.  We've had almost 2000 tickets allocated but I'll be amazed if even bring half of that.

I hope Sir Chris has the troops fully prepared for this one.  It's his first awayday as manager and he is probably going to be asked some different questions, which he must have the answers to if we are to pick up the win.
