Charlton Athletic 1 Notts County 0
I was driving to a friends lake house in Indiana yesterday trying to sneek quick looks at my phone and it sounded a shocker, especially first half. Someone once said a win is a win but new team or no new team, we have to play better.
Goals and chances are becoming thin on the ground. Parky chased Paul Benson all over the east end during the summer, but the ex-Dagger has yet to score this season. I wonder if it is time to move Lee Martin back up front and bring our top scorer Scott Wagstaff back into the fold? Certainly that would give us more mobility.
Meanwhile Joe Anyinsah scored on his debut, just 8 minutes after coming on for Benson and by all accounts Akpo Sodje made a big difference too.
Parky has some thinking to do regarding the forwards but less brain power should be required to see that Semedo and McCormack are not gelling, at least in terms of being able to break teams down. Racon replaced McCormack at half-time and deserves to keep his place in the side at Birkenhead next week.
Addicks at The Valley: Charlton Casual; Cometh The Addick; Stickleback; From The Hill To The Valley; Deepest Darkest; Drinking During the Game.
CA fact: By my reckoning that is Rob Elliot’s first ever top level penalty save.
