Charlton left it late to add to the scoreline in their 4-1 thumping of Northampton Town at The Valley, wth two of their goals coming in second-half stoppage time.
But there was little sense that the margin of their victory was undeserved, as RICK EVERITT reports. Read more here.
A new season means a new Voice of The Valley and VOTV136 hit the streets before the opening game against Bristol Rovers with new information on the Aussie consortium interested in buying Charlton.
Following the 6-1 demolition of Ipswich in the last pre-season friendly, we ask if things are finally looking up for the Addicks on the pitch, with Kyle Andrews taking an in-depth look at the transfer window.
There's a special focus on player of the year Ricky Holmes, while Rick Everitt has been to see what's been going on at Sparrows Lane over the summer and down to Stonebridge Road to explore why so many former Addicks are now involved at Ebsfleet and whether the National League club poses any serious threat to Charlton. Wyn Grant, Matt Wright, John Ingram and the Lone Gunman are all in our strong starting line-up for the new campaign too.
