Derby County goalkeeper Frank Fielding believes that Charlton Athletic are a similar side to the Rams.

The pair meet at Pride Park tonight with both sides looking to bounce back from 1-0 defeats to Huddersfield and Crystal Palace respectively.

“Charlton are a bit like us; they have got young players like ourselves with a few experienced heads around the place,” Fielding told Rams Player.

“I managed to watch their game against Crystal Palace on Friday night, and Charlton were unlucky; they had a goal disallowed, which was onside. But fair play to the linesman, he admitted he had made a mistake straight after the game which you don’t see much these days.

“They are a good side; they are young and hungry and newly promoted so they will still be on a high.

“We have got Burnley on Saturday, but the most important thing is Charlton on Tuesday and we just want to make Pride Park a fortress and it would be great to remain unbeaten in the League at home.”
