Putting the cherry on the cake

Fifteen hundred Charlton fans will head south west tomorrow to see if their unbeaten heroes can beat Bournemouth and climb into the top six in the table and I will be one of them.

Six of the top seven are away from home and all of them face tricky opposition in my view. Leaders Norwich have arguably the easiest task at so-far hopeless Fulham, although I am expecting a turnaround in their fortunes sooner or later. Forest go to Cardiff and will face a tough test to maintain their unbeaten run. Watford will do well to avoid defeat at Wednesday at Derby go to Reading. Fifth placed Boro have a long trip to Brighton and my money is on a home win there. Only Ipswich are at home and they face a Blackburn side who have a cutting edge and are capable of beating anyone in this league.

Bournemouth away is probably a similar sized task to what the others face but they have been indifferent this season and will be without Yann Kermorgant. It looks like JB Gudmundsson will be fit to start and that might be just the filip we need to take the game to the hosts. There has been plenty of talk in the media this week from BP and Captain Jacko about the need to score a second after opening the scoring and not retreating into our shells. Six of us will be there tomorrow including Chicago Addick who managed to catch the last flight out if hurricane threatened Bermuda. We all be hoping for an opening Charlton goal so we can see if there is a new game plan.

Before that though, I have a good bottle of Chianti and Hamilton Academicals versus the mighty Aberdeen. Come on the Dons!
