Nico Yennaris is expecting Charlton to be fighting for their lives when they travel to Brentford on Saturday.
The Addicks prop up the Championship with games running out and there are movements amongst the fanbase to oust despised owner Roland Duchatelet.
But Yennaris is expecting the Bees to face a side that will try every trick in the book to boost their survival chances.
He said: “It's going to be another tough game. It might not be such a footballing game. If teams are scrapping to win they will play anyway they can to win.
“We might have to expect a few long balls or smashed in with everyone coming up. We're preparing for a tough game.”

He added: “We've been focusing on ourselves making sure we do the basics right. If Charlton play that way we've got to be strong enough to stick to our game than get sucked into how they play.”
The dangerman is Yaya Sanogo who bagged a hat-trick as Charlton were beaten 4-3 by Reading.
Yennaris spent a bit of time with the 23-year-old at Arsenal and knows that he's a good character to have in the dressing room.
He explained: “I was there when he joined. I trained with him quite a bit. He had some injuries so we didn't get much game time.
“I wasn't there long enough to get to know him well. On the pitch, we had a decent relationship. He was all right. I didn't speak loads. He's a good character.”
