Live on Sky Sports: Charlton Athletic v Fulham

4 October 2015

Sunday's Sky Bet Championship fixture sees a London rivalry between Charlton Athletic and Fulham at the Valley, in the conclusion of the weekend's Sky Sports coverage.

Just three points separate the sides in the table at the quater-way stage this season, with Fulham sitting 14th on 11 points, and Charlton 17th on nine.

The Addicks are without a win in any of their last four League games, and, more notably, they've lost in each of their last three.

The visiting Cottagers have endured mixed form of lately, and their last four results read win, loss, win, loss.

A decade's wait

Charlton haven't overturned Fulham in more than 10 years, stretching back to December 2004, when Jerome Thomas and Talal El Karkouri were on the scoresheet in a 2-1 win.

In the eight games since, Fulham have triumphed four times, while there have been the same number of draws.

Most recently, in 2014/15, Fulham recorded a 3-0 victory at Craven Cottage, while a 1-1 stalemate was played out in the return fixture.

In the media

Charlton boss Guy Luzon says there will be no excuses come matchday, and that his side must get back to winning ways.

“In this kind of situation, everything I say will sound like an excuse,” he told

“I don’t want to be a person who says ‘we have slipped up because of that, because of that and because of that’.

“I can only blame myself and my team. It’s our responsibility to perform better. We are working hard to show our quality because we know it’s not enough at the moment.

“We are disappointed with our recent performances. We are not happy. The only way to overcome and come back is to work hard, like we did this week.

“It’s a challenge and, of course, when you have a great challenge you also have a great opportunity to show your quality. I really believe in my team.

“I know that we have the quality. I know that we have to show it; to show the football that we played in the first four or five games to get our good results back. We are working hard to do it.

“We will come with all that we have against Fulham to try and win the points.”

Fulham boss Kit Symons says he is happy his team are back in action so soon, following a 3-0 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers in midweek.

“You’ve got the high of Friday night with the QPR performance and result, and then the low of Tuesday, which was very disappointing for everyone,” he said to

“The great thing about the Championship is the games come thick and fast, so we had the disappointment of Tuesday and straight away we’re into a big game, a London derby, on Sunday.

“So it’s a fantastic opportunity for us as a football club to bounce straight back. All the players and everyone at the Club, all my staff, are fully focused on getting the right result on Sunday."
