In the first of three home games in December, Charlton Athletic are the visitors to the Amex this coming Saturday.
Karel Fraeye’s Addicks team are currently 21st in the Championship table, just one point ahead of Huddersfield Town who currently reside in the relegation zone.
New security procedures
In light of a recent security review, we would like to advise fans that the club will be taking a proactive approach to supporter safety and we ask that all supporters are patient and comply with stewards' requests when entering, once inside and on leaving the stadium.
We would also strongly advise that you arrive at the stadium at least 30–45 minutes earlier than usual. Please note, security WILL NOT be reduced or compromised in the event of queues forming to clear security.
Please ensure all coats and jackets are open and ready to be searched, and we would advise avoiding bringing any bags with you to the stadium unless it is absolutely necessary, as this may slow your entry, and that of other supporters, to the stadium.
All P&R car park sites as well as train services are expected to run as usual with no known maintenance scheduled.
