Charlton Athletic are second favourites for relegation from the Championship according to bookmakers.

Only Rotherham, who play to crowds of under 10,000 at the New York Stadium, are said to have less chance than the Addicks of staying in the Championship.

Bet 365 is offering odds of 3-1 on the Addicks dropping into League One, which may upset manager Guy Luzon who has worked hard this summer to build a bulky squad of six foot-plus footballers.

Even Promoted sides Preston, Bristol City and MK Dons are said to have a better chance of staying up than the southeast Londoners.

If you’re one of the optimistic Addicks, who reckon Charlton’s tough guys can thump themselves to promotion, you may be in luck. Skybet will give you odds of 22-1 for a Premier League return, while you can get 100-1 on Luzon’s lads winning the league on

Unknown quantity Simon Makienok for top scorer in the Championship is a risky bet, but at 100-1 with Paddy Power, it’s probably worth 50p.
