>With plenty of international football on over the next few days we head to the lower leagues and League 1 in particular to take a look at Wycombe who are visiting The Valley for the first time since 2012 to face Charlton.
It has been a mainly unimpressive start to the season so far for Charlton and while they are not exactly being outplayed in games so far they seem weak going forward and lack any real attacking quality in the final third. Manager Lee Bowyer will be hoping that after coming away from a tough trip to Roots Hall with 3 points last time out this could be their turning point. The standards have been no where near good enough so far for a side who finished last season in the play-offs!
While the hosts have really struggled to make a name for themselves so far this season, Wycombe have done surprisingly well in that respect. The Chairboys were expected to struggle by many, and while the season is still far from over, the early signs are relatively pleasing.
Dont be fooled, Wycombe haven’t exactly blown anyone away this season, but as a newly promoted team on limited resources they’ve more than held their own in the higher league!
