The EFL have recently announced that Championship fixtures will get back underway on the weekend of the 20th June.
Recent off-the-field events had called an abrupt halt to the sporting calendar in the UK, although some ‘normality’ seems to be returning to events across the country.
Charlton Athletic will certainly be relieved, with it previously being reported that the Championship could be concluded on a PPG (points per game) basis, which would see the Addicks relegated into League One.

Lee Bowyer’s side are currently sat 22nd in the second tier standings, and will be hoping they can finish this year’s campaign strongly and avoid relegation back into the third tier after one season in the Championship.
The Addicks have had their fair share of off-the-field problems this season, which seems to have disrupted some of their early-season momentum.
Plenty of Charlton Athletic supporters took to social media to issue their thoughts on this recent announcement from the EFL, with the majority being pleased to hear that they’re being given a chance to fight for Championship survival.

With so much of the squad now back healthy, there is absolutely no reason we can't stay up!

A lot of optimism in the threads here.
I'm not sure we'll dodge relegation, but I hope we can.
