Player to watch - Miguel Llera: A new signing at The Valley, the Spanish defender apparently chose a move to south London ahead of a switch to Norwich City. The centre-back had a good season for MK Dons last time around, but apparently wanted a change of scenery after a year in Milton Keynes. Tall and imposing, Llera will be key to helping shore up the defence.

Last league meeting: Norwich City 2, Charlton Athletic 2 (September 19, 2009): Norwich City skipper Grant Holt scored a dramatic injury-time equaliser to give his side a thoroughly merited point from a stirring fightback against Charlton at Carrow Road. Holt headed home from substitute Chris Martin's cross two minutes into stoppage time in a dramatic finish to a full-blooded encounter. First-half goals from Deon Burton and Jonjo Shelvey gave City a mountain to climb, but Wes Hoolahan gave them a lifeline when he pulled a goal back a minute before the break.

City connection: Assistant manager Phil Chapple started his career at City. Dean Sinclair came through the youth ranks at City.
