Chesterfield Kings

The in-form Addicks head to Chesterfield having not conceded a goal for 383 minutes, and with surely their best ever chance to reach the last eight of the League Cup for the first time in their history.

Our record in this competition is of course ridiculous so we would be advised not to take anything for granted, but with the Spireites struggling in League One anything less than a victory for us would be tough to accept.

I've mixed feelings about this year's Carling Cup generally though - it would be just my luck that we reach the final of the competition three days before the wife is due to give birth. "Darling, my waters have broken, you'd better come home......what's all that cheering in the background?"

However with so many Premiership clubs already out, and with many of those that remain viewing the competition as a low priority, the 40/1 offered on Charlton lifting the Cup surely represent value especially given our draw.

I currently find myself atop Ken J's CAFC Picks season-long prediction competition with 7 correct results from 11, so it is with a great deal of confidence that I take my form into the Carling Cup, put my neck on the line, and predict a comfortable Addicks win. NY Addick predicts: Chesterfield 0, Charlton 2 (Bent M, Hasselbaink)
