Under-21s Take On Charlton Tomorrow

19 January 2015

After losing at Colchester United last week, Palace's development side will be looking at getting back to winning ways when they host local neighbours Charlton Athletic at Tooting and Mitcham FC tomorrow.

Palace lost 4-2 to the U's despite Hiram Boateng's brilliant solo effort (VIDEO) but remain well-placed in the table to challenge for a play-off spot at the end of the season. The Eagles currently sit in fourth position in the U21 Professional Development League 2 table, just three points behind leaders Cardiff City but have games in hand on all of their rivals above them.

Charlton sit in sixth place, having amassed 19 points from 13 fixtures this term but boast the meanest defence in the league, having conceded only 13 goals.

They face a daunting task though to maintain that record as in their last home match a fortnight ago, Gary Issott's side thumped Queens Park Rangers 7-2 (VIDEO). The under-21 side's games provide plenty of entertainment for supporters, with an incredible 45 goals scored in their 14 league games already this campaign.

With that in mind, why not head down to the KNK Stadium for the clash with the Addicks on Tuesday afternoon? Kick-off is at 1pm and tickets are priced at £5 for adults and under-16s are admitted for free.
