Our in-form leftie reasons that playing at home in front of a sell-out festive crowd will be inspiration enough to build on a points total that is only one behind early front runners Liverpool.
"We are playing at home in front of our own crowd and are in fantastic position with 31 points now," commented the German, who featured in the side that secured a memorable win at the Valley in the opening weeks of the season.
"We will be thinking hard about the game with Charlton and we'll have to be well prepared for it. Charlton will obviously want to win back the three points we won there."
After a sluggish start to the season Charlton have hit a bit of form and, like us, are unbeaten in their last five games.
"I think, at the beginning, they were a bit unlucky. They've come back, are strong, and are always a hard working team.
"We lost against them at home last year and we don't want that to happen again."
Christian Ziege says the team must push on from their 'fantastic position' with a good result against Charlton at the Lane on Boxing Day.
