City hoping to complete Addicks double

City hoping to complete Addicks double

Exeter travel to the capital this weekend to face high-flying Charlton who are going well under new manager Chris Powell.

The Grecians are looking to make it back to back victories on the road after last weekend`s 2-0 success at Notts County.

City`s midweek fixture at home to Swindon fell victim of some unfriendly west country weather. Charlton`s game did go ahead though, they made the long trip North to Hartlepool where they were beaten 2-1 , Powell`s first defeat since taking charge.

Exeter City:

Paul Tisdale could name the same side that won in Nottingham last time out but the in-form Daniel Nardiello is pushing for a start.

Winger Jake Thomson is nearing fitness again after suffering an ankle injury in last week`s reserve team defeat at Torquay.

Charlton Athletic:

The Addicks are expected to have Paul Benson, Joe Anyinsah and Therry Racon all fit again, giving Powell a selection headache.

One Charlton player who will be familiar to Exeter City fans is striker Bradley Wright-Phillips. Wright-Phillips scored both goals in City`s 2-0 defeat to Plymouth Argyle in December. The striker has since joined Charlton and continued his fine form. He is the second highest scorer in League One this season with 16 goals to his name.

Earlier in the season there was late drama when the sides met at St James` Park when Ryan Harley`s stoppage time penalty earned City a 1-0 victory.

A bumper crowd is expected for the game because of a £5 ticket offer from Charlton.
