Ahead of Bolton's game with Charlton Athletic, we have got the views of a travelling Addicks supporter.

Wanderers and Charlton meet for the 82nd time on Saturday afternoon - the first meeting since January 2007, when Henrik Pedersen scored in a 1-1 draw at the Reebok Stadium.

As part of our build-up to this weekend's game, we have spoken to WWOCB from Not606.com, to get their views on Charlton's chances of back-to-back promotions, Dougie Freedman and which players Wanderers should be looking out for in their latest meeting.

Q: Charlton currently occupy 12th place in the Championship - 6 places above Bolton. How has your season been so far?

A: Very dull - in comparison to last season's roller-coaster ride - though most of us are happy with our league position and performances.

There have been a few memorable moments - with the 5-4 win against Cardiff City being one of the craziest games seen at The Valley.

Q: The Addicks won League One last year to earn a place in the Championship. Is a back-to-back promotion a possibility?

A: A very small possibility. Fans are optimistic of a slow ascent into the play-offs, but, in reality, very few of us are expecting a top 6 finish, let alone promotion.

Q: After just one defeat in eight matches under new boss Dougie Freedman, do you think promotion could be a possibility for the Wanderers?

A: Bolton were always going to be one of the favourites for promotion, having just dropped from the Premier League, but I'd be wary of making predictions based on the honeymoon period of a new manager. Take a look at Chris Powell's first half-season in charge of us, if you wish to know why.

Q: Johnnie Jackson is currently Charlton's top scorer with 4 goals. Who else should the Wanderers be wary of on Saturday?

A: You certainly shouldn't be wary of Jackson. Chris Solly is a firm fan-favourite and possibly the best right-back outside the Premier League.

Yann Kermorgant is a beast in the air and not afraid to get stuck-in and wind up opposition defenders.

Ricardo Fuller, of course, has his moments of magic - though may miss out through injury.

Q: Which Bolton player do you think Chris Powell will be earmarking as a potential threat to the Charlton goal?

A: Kevin Davies will certainly be putting up some fight against our defenders and is surely a certain goal threat.

Q: Finally, what do you think the final score will be at the Reebok Stadium on Saturday afternoon?

A: A bore draw - 0-0 or 1-1.
