Preview: Charlton Athletic vs. Leicester City

Sports Mole previews Leicester City's trip to The Valley to play Charlton Athletic.

Charlton Athletic host Leicester City on Saturday looking for their first win of the Championship campaign.

The Addicks have won just one point from their first three matches and they were also dumped out of the League Cup by Huddersfield Town in midweek.

Manager Chris Powell is likely to recall striker Simon Church for the visit of the Foxes.

Leicester are the form side in the Championship, recording four victories in their previous five matches to move to third position in the table.

Striker Chris Wood was substituted at the break last weekend, but he is likely to retain his place after netting three goals against Carlisle United in the Capital One Cup.
