I would imagine Chris Powell has spoken with Damien Matthews and Keith Peacock to get an inside track on his playing staff, along with training and getting to know the players this week. Wagstaff he already knows a bit from his last spell at the club when he Scott was first breaking into the squad.
I think he'll go with a 451 based formation. Based on the fact it's Sven Goran Ericksens favoured formation, it's what he played under Curbs as much of the time and that's how we set up last week against Sheffield Weds. I'd like to see Wagstaff playing just behind the front man again aswell.
Despite a great midweek result for Plymouth I just cannot see them picking any points up today, at a Valley that will be noisy, full of enthusiasm and have a good 18,000 plus. (this being a real bonus for what, in all honesty is not one of the more glamorous fixtures in league one).
I don't think it's going to be pretty, much more about endeavour and a complete refusal to bow to defeat (bit like the Portsmouth game all those years ago). 2-0 to Charlton, the season starts here!
