Charlton Athletic v Posh

A look ahead to the Sky Bet League One clash at the Valley against Charlton Athletic on Saturday (3pm).

Peterborough United make the trip to the Valley to face Charlton Athletic in Sky Bet League One action on Saturday afternoon (3pm) with Darren Ferguson’s men set to be backed by over 1,200 supporters in London for the fixture.

Posh go into the game on the back of a 3-2 victory at Pride Park against Derby County in the last league fixture with an FA Cup defeat to Leeds United at the Weston Homes Stadium in their last game in all competitions.

Charlton lie in mid-table following a 3-3 draw at Port Vale in their last game, but they are strengthening their squad during the January transfer window and will be eyeing a push for the play-offs in the second half of the campaign.


Posh goalkeepers Nicholas Bilokapic and Will Blackmore are both on the side-lines through injury, while striker Jonson Clarke-Harris remains sidelined with a calf problem, although it isn’t set to keep him out of action for too long.

Ferguson was set to change a number of players to his team for the postponed Bristol Street Motors Trophy tie with Crawley Town, but will pick a team with Saturday’s opposition in mind. Charlton have signed former on-loan Posh midfielder Conor Coventry from West Ham United on a three-year deal and will go straight into the squad for the weekend. Chuks Aneke and Miles Leaburn are both unavailable due to injury but recent signing Lewis Florini could start.


Corey Blackett-Taylor (pictured below) joined Charlton in August 2021 following an impressive trial period. Born in Erdington, Blackett-Taylor began his career with Aston Villa, progressing through the Villans' academy age groups before earning his senior debut in March 2017.

The England youth international spent the latter half of the 2018/19 season on loan at Walsall, before sealing a move to newly promoted League One side Tranmere Rovers, where he would go on to enjoy 62 appearances.

Following the expiration of his contract at Prenton Park, Blackett-Taylor joined Charlton on an initial short-term deal. The wideman immediately impressed in SE7 and, within three months, was rewarded with a new contract running until at least 2023. In March 2023 the club triggered the one-year extension clause in Blackett-Taylor's contract.

“Charlton are a good side. They have gone a lot younger in terms of their squad, they have a lot of energy in midfield now and they have plenty of pace in attack. I have no doubt that they are a dangerous opponent, but we need to focus on ourselves because we have picked up three straight wins on the road and played well, arguably the best we have done on the road, in our last game at Derby County,” Darren Ferguson said.


The club have sold 1,287 tickets for the clash at the Valley with tickets going off sale at 3pm on Friday. We will find out at 3pm whether Charlton will allow Posh fans to pay on the day. You can purchase tickets at
