Charlton’s poor record against ‘Boro over ten years.
We’ve played Middlesbrough 90 times in the league overall. That’s second only to the 96 times that we’ve played Portsmouth. Over that whole period, results have been pretty even. Boro have just shaded things winning 37 to our 34. And aside from two major demolishings in the 1950s 7-3 and 8-1 (still our record defeat) our record overall is pretty reasonable. Not recently though. A look at the results for the last ten years shows that we have played them twelve times. Of those, we have only won twice, drawing three and losing seven.
