Travel advice given for Boxing Day match at Charlton Athletic

IPSWICH Town’s lunchtime Boxing Day match at Charlton Athletic will go ahead, despite likely major disruptions to train and tube travel.

Arsenal yesterday announced that their Boxing Day match against fellow Londoners West Ham had been postponed due to the fact there is a planned tube strike.

There is no Southeastern train service stopping at Charlton station on December 26, however, the Addicks have decided to go ahead with the match against their Suffolk visitors – instead offering advice for those going by car for the 1pm kick-off.

A statement issued on the south London club’s website read: “The club is expecting a larger number of fans to drive to the match, so has issued some parking advice.

“Supporters who park within the controlled parking zone, who would normally need a permit, will not require one for Boxing Day.

“As regards parking on bays with meters, fans will need to read the bank holiday notices on the machines to see if there is a charge. Supporters thinking of parking on single yellow lines should also carefully read the parking signs in that area.

“Fans should note the earlier 1pm kick-off time.”

  • Cold sprouts always seemed a much more attractive prospect than this one.

  • This tube strike is quite frankly disgusting. These people earn £46K a year for working no more than 35 hours per week and got £500 bonus if they worked during the Olympics. As if their current deal for working on Boxing Day wasn't good enough, they now want 3 days pay plus an additional days holiday!! Shameful, simply shameful. I was looking forward to going to the match but now will not. Having lived there I strongly advise people NOT to drive! It is absolute bedlam - or rather, it has been for the past two years when these pillars of UK community have gone on strike on Boxing Day!

Ipswich Town teenage right-back Josh Emmanuel is determined to show his parents their sacrifices were worth it by establishing himself as a first-team player.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy believes veteran midfielder Jonathan Douglas could be the answer to his team’s goal drought.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy highlighted the performances of Josh Emmanuel, Jonas Knudsen and Tom Lawrence as positives after tonight’s goalless home draw with high-flying Brighton.

Ipswich Town couldn’t capitalise on Brighton finishing the game with 10 men as they played out a second successive goalless draw at Portman Road in front of their lowest league attendance in almost four years.

Ipswich Town have an opportunity to quickly bounce back from a 1-0 defeat to Leeds as they host Brighton and Hove Albion at Portman Road tonight.

Ipswich Town’s next home game takes place tonight – but how well do you know the opposition?

Ipswich Town captain Luke Chambers says the team has got to start trying to entertain the fans more ahead of tonight’s Championship clash with Brighton at Portman Road (7.45pm ko).

Ipswich and Huddersfield have met sporadically over the years, often only spending a few years in the same division before one of them moves up or down to pastures new.

Ipswich Town skipper Luke Chambers feels criticism of him playing at right-back has been unjustified, but admits he’d love to nail down his preferred position of centre-back again.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy will continue to deploy a safety-first tactical approach heading into back-to-back home games.
