Charlton Athletic will be looking to return to winning ways in their clash with Crewe Alexandra on Tuesday evening in their hunt to secure a League One play-off spot.

Having been in a decent run of form prior to the fixture Peterborough United last weekend, with Nigel Adkins’ side winning three of their five previous five league fixtures, the 1-0 defeat to Posh put a serious dent in the Addicks’ promotion hopes, with the result leaving Charlton two points behind Oxford United, Blackpool and Portsmouth in the race for a top six finish.

Aside from the obvious disappointment of the loss against Peterborough, one concerning factor for Adkins will have been the performance of Jayden Stockley, with the centre-forward missing a penalty as well as losing possession of the ball eight times and earning a SofaScore match rating of just 6.4 in the fixture – ranking the 27-year-old as Charlton’s worst performer on the day.

The big games keep on coming for Charlton Athletic as they welcome Ipswich Town to The Valley in Sky Bet League One.

As such, with a win being an absolute necessity against Crewe on Tuesday, the 56-year-old should look to recall Conor Washington to his starting XI in the place of Stockley.

When comparing the two strikers, Washington’s scoring frequency of a goal every 194 minutes far betters Stockley’s, who has one strike over every 231 minutes of action. Washington’s shot-to-goal conversion rate of 27% is also significantly higher than that of Stockley, with the latter sitting at 16%.

Furthermore, Stockley has missed five big chances so far this season, two more than Washington’s three, as well as having scored five fewer league goals than the Northern Irishman’s haul of 11.

As such, considering the sheer magnitude of the clash with Crewe, it would appear an obvious choice to start the player who Lee Bowyer claimed always “works his socks off” ahead of Stockley in the fixture, as Washington has proven that he provides the Addicks with a significantly increased goal threat when given the chance.
