Charlton are managed by Karl Robinson who was appointed in November 2016 on a two-and-a-half-year deal. Robinson had only left MK Dons a few weeks earlier (after six years in charge) and will set his sights on steadying a rocky ship and then targeting a place in the top-6.
Alan Curbishley is perhaps the best known Charlton Manager of recent times. Curbishley led the club into the Premier League and kept them in the top-flight for a number of years. It was only when Curbishley moved on that Charlton's fortunes took a dip and they have been fighting to get back to the top-flight ever since.
A mixed set of recent results has seen Charlton Athletic collect wins versus Swindon Town, Chesterfield, Gillingham and Southend United while suffering adverse results at Milton Keynes Dons, Peterborough United and Sheffield United. Draws against Coventry City, Bradford City and Walsall has seen them show mid-table form at best.
