It's been a little bit chaotic post-Bournemouth with Town fans either unhappy or concerned with how Swindon Town's season is going. Well, then I imagine nobody is confident as Town head to The Valley to take on Charlton Athletic in front of the SkySports cameras

Vital Quotes:

Danny Wilson talking to the Swindon Advertiser after the Bournemouth loss

'As far as I`m concerned I will soldier on like I always have done, and the players will have to show the same kind of determination that I have and if we can do that we`ll come through this no problem.'

Charlton Athletic Team News:

Former Dagenham and Redbridge favourite Paul Benson was sent-off during the 3-3 draw with Colchester United so he misses out through suspension.

Joe Anyinsah is struggling with a back problem while fellow forward Akpo Sodje could also miss out with a shoulder complaint.

Charlton Athletic squad for the Colchester game

Elliot, Dailly, Francis, Doherty, Fry, Martin, Semedo, Racon (Reid 59'), Wagstaff (Abbott 59'), Jackson, Benson (sent off 88').

Subs not used: Seip, McCormack, Sodje, Fortune, Worner,

Player to watch: Johnnie Jackson

Goalscoring wise, he's having the best season of his career with 10 goals in the league already this season.

The former Swindon Town loanee joined the Addicks from Notts County after a successful loan spell.

Swindon Town Team News:

Jonathan Douglas sits out as he completes his suspension.

Meanwhile, Alan Sheehan was substituted through injury against Bournemouth so Michael Rose will be on stand-by to replace him if need be.

Town squad that lost to Bournemouth

Smith, Frampton, Cuthbert, Sheehan (Rose 69'), Caddis, McGovern, Ferry (Timlin 75'), Prutton, Ritchie, Ball (Pericard, 57'), Austin.

Subs not used: Scott, Dossevi, Morrison, Bodin,.

Player to watch: Matt Ritchie

The on-loan midfielder has come out and stated that the players are united and will do their best to leave Charlton with a positive result.

It is therefore important that Ritchie puts on a good performance.
