Relegation battles don't come much closer than this, with 21st-placed Hull lying just two points above 22nd-placed Charlton going into matchweek 38.

With Premier League participation in the not-so-distant past, Hull's wage bill exceeds Charlton's, the latter having been promoted from League One ahead of this season: £24.8 million to £10.2 million (2017/18).

Hull are without a win in 11 matches and have lost their past four, while Charlton, who are also in the middle of ownership chaos, having lost their past three, last secured a win four matches ago.
