History of the Everton v Charlton Athletic fixture

Everton prepare to entertain Charlton Athletic at Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Blues are clearly on top, having won 12 and lost only 5 of the 23 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Goodison Park was just last season, in January 2004, with Charlton Ath. inflicting a narrow 0-1 defeat upon the Blues in a Premiership match.
