Charlton Athletic welcome Fulham to The Valley tonight for a clash which could have repurcussions at both ends of the table.
Lee Bowyer is looking to pull his side further clear of the relegation battle, currently sat just five points clear of the drop zone, whilst Fulham could move to within just a point of the automatic promotion places.
It is also a match that sees two Charlton icons reunite at The Valley with both Bowyer and Parker enjoying successful spells with the Addicks – with both also graduating through the club’s youth system.

And ahead of the match we were reminded of a previous clash between the two managers when West Ham visited The Valley.
A Hammer at the time, Bowyer clashed with Parker after dumping the midfielder over the advertising boards in front of his own fans, leading to an altercation between the two once the latter was back on his feet.
Here, we take a look at some of the reactions to the memory from the Charlton faithful…
More of this tonight!👍🏼
