Charlton v Sunderland League One Play-Off Final Preview, 26th May 3.00pm

This should be an intriguing final because there doesn’t look to be too much between them. It wouldn’t be a huge surprise if this one needed to go beyond the regulation 90 minutes. In terms of current form, it is the Addicks who are in the stronger shape. The bookmakers don’t know who to split these two. It should be tense. Read our Charlton v Sunderland betting tips for more.

Charlton News and Form

Charlton finished the regular season by collecting a win in seven of their final eight games (L1). It was terrific form by the Addicks and they came through a thriller against Doncaster in their playoff semi-final. Charlton had taken a 2-1 first leg win away from home, so they were expected to cruise back at The Valley. But Doncaster came back hard at them and Charleton were on the ropes in extra time before a defensive mistake by their opponents gave Charlton the lifeline they needed. They lost 2-3 on the night but won the subsequent penalty shootout.

The lost against Doncaster was just their second defeat in their last seventeen games played. Charlton finished the regular season with the second-best defensive record in the division. They collected 21 points from their final eight games of the campaign, more than any other team managed in that sequence of fixtures. The Addicks averaged 1.6 goals per match across the course of the regular season, while they conceded at under a goal per game. Their defence was so strong and it carried them so far. Can it get them promotion?

Both teams have scored in all but one of the last nine meetings

Sunderland News and Form

Sunderland drew a massive total of 19 of their 46 league games this season. It was interesting though that their form fell away right at the end of the term. They were going so strong and looked in a prime position to have a shot at automatic promotion. It fell apart for them in early April, and they closed out the season with just a W1 D3 L3 record on the board. During that sequence, the Black Cats lost their unbeaten home record for the term in a 4-5 loss against Coventry.

That slump in form was costly as they missed automatic promotion and they did look nervous in their semi-final playoff. They faced up against Portsmouth in their playoff semi-final and as expected it was a really tight affair. Sunderland earned a 1-0 win in the first leg at home, and they relied heavily on their defence as they played out a 0-0 draw at Fratton Park to squeeze through. Sunderland conceded an average of just over a goal per game during the regular season, but they took just one clean sheet in their eight games of the regular season.

Who will win – Charlton v Sunderland Predictions

Charlton missed out at the semi-final stage of last season’s playoffs, so have already gone one better. This just has the look of being a really tight war of attrition at Wembley. However, with Charlton carrying the better form of the two of them, it may be the Addicks, who manage to scrap their way through to promotion even if it is not at the end of 90 minutes.
