Charlton Athletic Fixtures mapped out
« on: February 02, 2007, 11:41:51 AM »
The female Addicks have been waiting for no less than 11 fixtures to be rescheduled as they plot the second half of a season that will include a tilt at a second FA Cup final victory in three seasons as well as a place in Europe.

But four consecutive away games to Cardiff City, Bristol Academy and Birmingham City, culminating in a trip to Arsenal, in March alone looks a tough test to overcome.

Charlton are currently third in the table, eight points behind the league-leading Gunners with a game in hand. Second-placed Leeds United are three points better off having also played a match more.

Indeed, the Addicks will face defending league champions Arsenal twice in the space of eight days in late March and early April - the matches that could decide the destination of the championship.

After Charlton's FA Cup fifth-round tie with Nottingham Forest on Sunday, Keith Boanas' side is next in action at home to Fulham on Thursday, February 8th, with the quarter-finals of the FA Cup scheduled for four days later.

The season concludes with Cardiff City at Stonebridge Road on Sunday, April 29th, eight days before the scheduled FA Cup final at The City Ground, Nottingham.
