Sports Mole previews Friday's South London derby between Charlton Athletic and Crystal Palace at the Valley.

Crystal Palace head into their South London derby against Charlton Athletic on Friday night second from bottom in the Championship table.

Dougie Freedman's side have struggled so far this season and only managed to pick up their first victory last time out against Sheffield Wednesday.

David Goodwillie, who recently joined the Eagles on loan from Blackburn Rovers, is expected to start up front for Freedman's side. The Scot will partner Glenn Murray after his two goals during the win over Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Charlton could also give a full debut to their loan signing Ricardo Fuller.

The hosting Addicks believe that over 21,000 people will be attendance at the Valley.
