It is 13 games, nearly six months since Charlton won away from home. Locals who follow the team have travelled nearly 4,000 miles since they last saw their heroes win on the road.

They have some tough away games still to come – Forest, Brentford and Leeds are among the destinations they have yet to visit.

They probably need another 15 points to guarantee their Championship place for next season, so it will largely come down to their home form. But that will not be a stroll in the park either.

Charlton only have seven games left to play at The Valley, and they will need to win four and draw three, or win five of those fixtures to accumulate that number of points.

The good news is a lot of those games are against bottom half of the table teams, but bogey side, Millwall, are also amongst the visitors. There could scarcely be a better time to end the hoodoo.

Two absolutely crucial games will be the match ups with Luton and Wigan, ‎the Addicks simply have to win those two games.

The survival run in could hardly start with a trickier game. Forest will start with a massive advantage on Tuesday evening.

They will be at home, as they were on Saturday. Lee Bowyer’s side face their second lengthy trek in three days. Recovery is a hugely important part of football, and for this game, it is very definitely advantage Forest.
