Southend United 0 Charlton Athletic 1
A straw poll before the game would probably have most Addicks not giving two hoots to the result, but come on now, deep down we all wanted to win didn’t we? I did for sure.
The 1-0 victory in front of a noisy and impressive 1,200 Addicks is a further confidence boost, and suddenly we are nicely placed in a cup competition with the regional semi’s next. Who knew.
Parky rested a couple of players tonight and interestingly set us up in a 4-3-3 formation at the beginning and by all accounts Semedo, Racon and McCormack bossed the midfield. I sporadically had the commentary on but mostly followed the game via Twitter. Maybe there won’t be many highlights that’ll make the end of season video but I am looking forward to seeing man of the match Therry Racon’s goal.
Nice job Charlton.
