Sadly were still missing Danny Batth for this game, his absence this season has been greatly noticed, and without him our defence looks very fragile. Hopefully he will be back after the international break.

Not really sure on the rest of the team, KJ doesn't seem to know who his first choice goalkeeper is yet, never mind his prefered staring XI. Personally would like to see Le Fondre play on his own up front with Afobe just behind him. Bright Enobakhare deserves some gametime too, he looks very impressive.

Charlton are one of, if not the most underestimated team in the division. I see a lot of people write them off because they've brought in a lot of foreign players in rather than spending millions on overrated English players . From what I've seen, and the early league table viewing though they look very good, and are certainly one of the teams I can see up there come the end of the season.

As for the game, I think we'll draw 2-2.

Reasonably but not overly confident we can get something from this, we're playing good football and you can see the side are brimming with confidence.

Hopeful we will see some of our injured players return, Luzon has ruled out Tony Watt which is a shame but says Solly may be back, no mention of Ceballos and Ba played at Peterborough in the week so none of the injuries appear to be too serious.

Always a tough game at Wolves, as they're yet to win at home hopefully we can stifle them early and get the crowd on their back and nick the win but on the other hand they will be desperate to get that first home win and we could be under the cosh for a lot of the game.

Whatever happens, I would have bitten my own hand off for 8 points at the end of August so if we can come away with a point I would be ecstatic but not too disheartened if we're to come away with nothing.

An optimistic 1-1.

Sounds like a right shitfest at the moment.
It's all gone wrong somehow. Shocking goalkeeping, a woeful back line, lack of creativity in the middle and no real cutting edge in the final third. Apart from that, we look like Champions.
Sadly, my optimism at the beginning of the season has completely vanished.

Think this will end 2-0 to Charlton now.

Wasn't there today, was otherwise occupied so was following via Twitter.

We didn't sound as if we were at our best today, frustrating as it is to throw away a lead, sounded like the right result?

More injuries today, it's a fucking joke now.

After watching I really didn't think much of Charlton. Guessing it was just an off day but they were very ordinary today IMO.

The Dicko injury looked bad, it was a fair challenge by the Charlton defender and Dicko just went over him and landed awkwardly and went off on a stretcher. The game had a few good chances but we really lacked any sort of clinical finishing. There were a few times where it felt like it was easier to score than miss.

All in all I'm happy to win but we didn't really look convincing. The subs, Ojo and Le Fondre changed the game for us.
