THE 6-1 mauling at Leicester was Town’s 10th match without a win, so Simon Grayson might be grateful his side can put their league woes to one side and enjoy the brief distraction of an FA Cup tie at Charlton.

As they face divisional counterparts, however, it will almost feel like a Championship match, especially as they went to the Valley on November 24.

That one finished all square, an outcome that’s 12/5 via bet365 to be replicated in this one, while a repeat of the 1-1 scoreline is a 6/1 shot at William Hill and it’s 9/2 (Ladbrokes) for both halves to again finish all square.

With that previous clash in mind, Town fans can back their team at 29/20 in BetVictor’s ‘Draw No Bet’ market, and as the hosts are Stan James’ 11/10 favourites to progress to the fourth round at the first attempt, Grayson’s men receive a goal start in Skybet’s handicaps at 4/6.

Unassisted, they are BetVictor’s 27/10 outsiders, it’s 4/1 (bet365) for Town to edge it by one and Stan James make them 9/1 to grab the only goal of the game.

Alternatively, punters expecting a match tally of three or more goals (20/23, BetVictor) can gamble on a 2-1 away victory at 11/1 with bet365 and Stan James go 5/1 about a Town lead at the end of each half.

James Vaughan is 8/1 (Paddy Power) to get back amongst the goals by breaking the deadlock.
