Charlton Athletic v Millwall - the stats

12 January 2017

All you need to know ahead of Saturday's London derby at The Valley

Millwall travel the short distance to The Valley this weekend hoping to extend their unbeaten run against Charlton Athletic to 10 games.

Goals from Aiden O'Brien and Steve Morison (2) handed The Lions a 3-1 victory in the two club's last meeting on December 21st - a result that set Neil Harris' side on their way to three consecutive home victories over the Christmas and New Year period.

Just one place and three points separate the London rivals with over half of the season done and dusted, making this weekend's fixture highly important for supremacy in the League standings as well as local bragging rights.

The Lions' recent record in SE7 is strong, having not conceded a goal since a 4-4 draw in December 2009 - a run stretching back three games.

On that occasion, Steve Morison's brace helped Kenny Jackett's charges towards a point on a highly-charged afternoon, with Danny Schofield's injury-time equaliser preventing The Addicks securing their first victory over Millwall since 1996.

The two clubs did not meet between then and the eight-goal thriller, but of late, it is Millwall that hold the upper hand, winning five of the nine meetings over the last eight years.

In 2015, it was a Good Friday for The Lions, as strikes from Jos Hooiveld and Magaye Gueye overturned Alou Diarra's opener as 10-man Charlton were defeated, whilst - before two consecutive goalless draws - Scott McDonald's deflected effort captured all three points in a televised clash at The Valley.

Shane Lowry's thunderbolt helped Jackett's outfit on their way to a 2-0 victory in March 2013, in a game that also saw Jermaine Easter score with his first touch after coming on as a substitute, while three years previously, The Lions were rampant, as a Morison brace added the gloss to Christian Dailly's own-goal and Darren Ward's header in a 4-0 win.

Should Millwall be victorious on Saturday, it will be their 36th win over Charlton. The Addicks have won 11, whilst there have been 25 draws.
