Whilst they have nothing to play for, both teams managers will still be demanding the upmost effort and quality from the sides in order to take all three points.

Charlton will be looking to end life in the Championship on a high and Leeds United will be hoping to get a couple of wins under their belt before the end of the season to help them to really push on next season and succeed.

FLW writer Tom Rawcliffe identifies 3 things to look out for in this encounter…

1) Farewell to the Championship

Even though Charlton do still have a game to play after this one, this game will be their last away game in the Championship before they begin playing League One football next season.

There aren’t many better stadiums in the Championship that Charlton could have played their last away game, with Elland Road holding the second largest capacity in the league.

The atmosphere will no doubt be exhilarating as the home fans say farewell to the season at Elland Road.

2) Final home game for Lewis Cook?

Lewis Cook is one of the hottest talents in the Football League at the moment and was recently awarded as the Football League’s Young Player of the Year.

His fantastic performances have reportedly attracted attention from many top-flight clubs such as Chelsea, Everton, Manchester United and AFC Bournemouth.

If they are to receive a substantial offer for the 19-year-old midfielder then they may have to let him go but that would be a sad sight for all to see as this lad really has played such a crucial part this season for the Whites.

3) Addicks away form

This season, Charlton hold one of the worst records away from home in the whole of the Championship, second only to rock-bottom Bolton Wanderers.

The Addicks have taken just 14 points from their 22 games played away from The Valley, and losing a total of 14 games.

If their record is anything to go by then they are not expected to take all three points from this one, and could be facing a 15th away defeat of the season.

Leeds and Charlton fans…What are your predictions for the match? Will this be the final time Lewis Cook plays for Leeds at Elland Road? Can Charlton end their disappointing season on a high? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
