Tuesday evening sees AFC Wimbledon host Charlton, as both sides get their EFL Trophy campaign underway in a precursor to their respective League One seasons. In a group alongside Brighton under-21s and Leyton Orient, Wimbledon want to improve upon last season's performance.

Charlton, relegated by Championship winners Leeds United on the final day last month, make their competition return after a year's absence. Will they mark their first game back with victory against their London rivals here? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

AFC Wimbledon vs Charlton Betting Tips

Tuesday's hosts narrowly avoided relegation from League One last term, such was their inconsistency and alarming inability to avoid conceding goals. After 35 matches, they were three points and +11 goal difference better off than Tranmere Rovers – who face life in League Two this coming season.

Glyn Hodges, who previously managed Manchester City and Stoke at under-23 level, has a task on his hands this term. Having been comprehensively beaten 3-0 by QPR in their pre-season friendly on August 22, it wasn't exactly an encouraging display.

It'll be interesting to see if those who starred against National League South side Tonbridge Angels will feature here.

Ethan Chislett, Tom Chiabi and Joe Pigott all got on the scoresheet during that victory and will be itching to begin the new campaign with momentum. Chislett joined Wimbledon earlier this month in a deal from Aldershot Town, while Chiabi graduated from Cardiff's academy ranks.

Speaking of frustrating friendly results, Charlton know the feeling. Despite a valiant effort, they were ultimately bested by Crystal Palace last Saturday with a 3-0 defeat. Jordan Ayew netted a quick-fire brace before Wilfried Zaha added gloss to their performance after 85 minutes, in a seemingly inevitable result.

They'll be satisfied it took Roy Hodgson's side 78 minutes to finally earn the breakthrough, by which time they made seven substitutions. How will they fare against inferior opposition, at least on paper?

AFC Wimbledon vs Charlton Correct Score Predictions

This fixture could go either way between two sides who underperformed in 2019-20 and will be target a purposeful start to the new season. I'm going with BTTS though.
