Meanwhile, Blackburn make the long trip to London having won three of their last five outings at the second tier, keeping the club in the hunt for a playoff spot.
After a run of just one win from 17 matches, Lee Bowyer would have feared for both his job and the Charlton's future in the Championship.
However, a return of seven points from four games, which includes wins over Barnsley and Nottingham Forest, has moved the Addicks clear of the drop zone.
Although Sabri Lamouchi dominated the headlines for naming a weakened Forest XI, Bowyer deserves praise for naming two in attack, a decision which ultimately paid off with Lyle Taylor getting on the scoresheet.
The result at the City Ground puts Bowyer in a position where he can now encourage his side to play with freedom in their upcoming games, many of which are against out-of-form opponents or teams in close proximity to them.
Tony Mowbray may ask the same of his Blackburn side after they ended a two-game winless streak with a convincing victory over Hull City on Tuesday night.
Picking up just one point from meetings with Middlesbrough and Fulham had resulted in Rovers dropping back down into mid-table, but the success against the Tigers keeps the club as outsiders for the playoffs.
Given the quality above them, few will expect the Lancashire-based outfit to become a factor in the top six, although that is something which may play into their hands.
None of his teammates have netted more than three times, putting the onus on the former Newcastle United man to inspire his side over the coming months.
Charlton Athletic Championship form: DLDWLW
Blackburn Rovers Championship form: DWWDLW
Despite the success at Forest, Bowyer could tinker with his Charlton side for this contest.
Charlton Athletic possible starting lineup:
Phillips; Pearce, Lockyer, Sarr; Matthews, Davis, Cullen, Williams, Purrington; Taylor, Bonne
Blackburn Rovers possible starting lineup:
Walton; Nyambe, Lenihan, Adarabioyo, Bell; Travis, Johnson; Brereton, Armstrong, Downing; Graham
We say: Charlton Athletic 1-1 Blackburn Rovers
Both of these teams will fancy their chances of victory at the weekend. However, with each club having impressed of late, we feel that they could cancel each other out, something which would benefit Charlton more than the visitors.
