Sports Mole previews Tuesday's Championship clash between Charlton Athletic and Leicester City at the Valley.

Charlton Athletic welcome Leicester City to the Valley on Tuesday with both sides harbouring very different goals in the new campaign.

Charlton, who finished top of League One last season, opened their season with a respectable 1-1 draw against Birmingham City on Saturday. Meanwhile, Leicester began with a 2-0 win over Peterborough United.

Last season hardly went to plan for Leicester after vast investment in the squad, but they are expected to make a real push for the Premier League this time around.

The two sides last met in the Championship in September 2007, where Charlton recorded a 2-0 victory. Generally, they have enjoyed the better of the head-to-head record against the Foxes.

Charlton have no fresh injury concerns ahead of the match and could remain unchanged, while Leicester could hand starts to Andy King and David Nugent in attack.

Possible lineups:

Charlton: Hame; Solly, Morrison, Cort, Wiggins; Pritchard, Stephens, Holland, Jackson; Kemorgant, Wright-Phillips

Leicester: Schmeichel; De Laet, Moore, Morgan, Konchesky; Marshall, Drinkwater, King, Dyer; Beckford, Vardy

Sports Mole says: 1-2
