HEAD TO HEAD: Coventry City v Charlton Athletic - City just edging the all time head-to-head record.

13 October 2016

Ahead of the Sky Blues' visit to the Valley on Saturday, City are currently ahead of Charlton in the all time head-to-head record...

Coventry go into Saturday’s game against Charlton having not faced the Addicks for seven years since a dour 0-0 draw in the Championship in 2009.

Played – 35
Games won – 13
Games drawn – 12
Games lost – 10

Since the club’s first meeting over 90 years ago, the overall record is extremely close, with just three wins separating the sides.

In the last meeting between the two sides back in 2009, Charlton’s Championship status was left hanging by a thread after a 0-0 draw at the Ricoh Arena.

Needing to win to have any realistic chance of staying up, the Addicks were left 12 points adrift with just four games remaining and a poor goal difference. 

Jonjo Shelvey seen a goal disallowed and Nick Bailey fired against the post, with Ashley Cain coming closest to a winner for the Sky Blues. 

The earlier meeting between the two sides that season seen the Sky Blues come out 2-1 victors at the Valley. 

Coventry opened the scoring through Robbie Simpson as he finished a Daniel Fox cross to beat Nicky Weaver in the Addicks goal. 

Deon Burton levelled the game from the penalty spot in the 49th minute, before Fox won it for the visitors with a wonderful 30-yard free kick into the top corner.
