Charlton boss Nathan Jones looking forward to run of home games after ‘really strange’ schedule of away matches

Nathan Jones is looking forward to a run of three matches at The Valley after tomorrow’s trip to Exeter City – with the Charlton manager having so many away assignments since taking charge last month.

The Welshman kicked off his tenure with a road trip to Reading and then clocked up more miles heading to Bolton, Derby, Northampton, Cheltenham and Fleetwood Town.

The Addicks are unbeaten in eight League One matches despite the heavy slant towards matches outside of SE7.

Charlton face Stevenage at The Valley on Monday and follow up with the visits of Barnsley and Wigan.

“It’s nice to be at home, in front of our own fans more than anything – getting used to playing at The Valley,” Jones told the South London Press.

“This will be my 10th game (against Exeter) and seven of them have been away. I’ve never come across that, it’s not like we’re in the Champions League and it has been cup games – it’s been all league games.

“It has been really, really strange. Look, as long as we keep picking up points I don’t care – I’ll play on the moon if it means we get three points.

“It will be nice to get back in front of our home fans and hopefully build something there.

“I don’t mind, as long as we stay unbeaten, whether we win the home one or the away one. If you win all your home games and draw all your away games then you’ll be some team. That would be the ideal way. But as long as we keep getting points then I’m not worried where they come.”
