Rovers and Out!

It's the last home match of the season, and the antipathy is pretty bad. The effort of writing a final home match preview is tough when the season is ending on such a low note. Clubs of similar stature and ability have European football to look forward to; Cup finals to play in; excited anticipation of another season in the Premiership - but not Charlton. The official website Blackburn Rovers match preview is here.

The team have a whole host of injuries, along with Hermann's suspension. It is unikely there will be many changes from the team thrashed at Bolton last week, simply due to lack of bodies being available.

This is the team I expect, subject to fitness, Curbs to put out -

Stephan Andersen, Osei Sankofa, Chris Powell, Jonathan Fortune, Gonzalo Sorondo, Matt Holland, Radistan Kishishev, Bryan Hughes, Jerome Thomas, Jay Bothroyd, Darren Bent.

Subs from Thomas Myrhe, Chris Perry, Kelly Youga, Dennis Rommedahl, Darren Ambrose, Jason Euell, and Kevin Lisbie.

My one-to-watch in this match is Darren Bent, who needs just two goals to total twenty for the season. Every time I tip Dazza though, he seems to fail to score, so I'm hoping for a change of luck here.

Pedro45's score prediction is a 1-0 defeat; Rovers are a bogey team, and beat us 3-2 in the League Cup with three goals in the last fifteen minutes. Hopefully tomorrow goalkeeping errors will not contribute like they did that night, and we can get to fifty points for the season - no mean achievement. Somehow though it doesn't seem very possible...
