Charlton Athletic manager Nathan Jones expresses frustration over the disproportionate number of away games his team has faced since he took charge, finding it perplexing how the fixtures have unfolded in such a manner.

Jones assumed the managerial role at the Valley in early February, with his debut match being an away fixture against Reading, which Charlton lost 2-0. Since then, the team has only played three games at home, with their most recent match being a 1-1 draw away against Fleetwood Town in League One. Their next fixture against Exeter City will also be away from home, leaving Jones bewildered by the significant number of away fixtures during his tenure.

Given the imbalance in home and away games, Jones finds it challenging to accurately assess his team’s performance. He eagerly anticipates a series of home fixtures starting in April, which will allow for a more balanced evaluation of Charlton’s progress.

Reflecting on the situation, Jones conveyed his satisfaction with the team’s current position considering the circumstances upon his arrival and the team’s initial standing. He views the upcoming sequence of three consecutive home games against Stevenage, Barnsley, and Wigan Athletic as an opportunity to showcase their capabilities to the home supporters.

Despite Charlton Athletic currently occupying 16th place in the League One table, Jones remains optimistic about the team’s prospects moving forward.
