Chances of an appeal? Sweet FA
Charlton Athletic 3 Yeovil Town 2
An exciting game at The Valley on Saturday ended with another 3 points after Johnnie Jackson hammered home a 85th minute penalty, after Akpo Sodje was hauled down in the box. Well tickled down anyway.
Paul Huntington was sent off for that challenge (2nd yellow), the same man who ran 60-yards to convince referee Whitestone to send off Christian Dailly for an alleged elbow. I have to say the video clip looks like he led with his arm, even if was lacking intent. I hope the club can find another angle if they are to pursue the FA with an appeal because the FA have a habit of turning their noses up at us. In our favour is that both Yeovil player Sam Williams and manager and ex-Welling United defender Terry Skiverton said it was a clash of heads after the game.
That is Dailly’s second red of the season, so he will banned for 4 games (Rovers, Luton, Rochdale & Walsall) and he will be missed. Amazingly in the Scot’s 20-year career he has only seen red twice!
From what I heard and read it wasn’t a tip-top sparkling performance but Yeovil belied their position in the league table and it was an exciting and valuable 3 points.
A word about Therry Racon, that first touch, turn and shot was worth the CAFC Player fee alone. I would be interested to know why he has suddenly started to work out where the net is?
So, the games keep coming thick and fast with Bristol Rovers visiting The Valley tomorrow night. One player who will most likely not make the trip is attempted murderer Dominic Blizzard, who is out of favour. Remember it was Blizzard who tried to end Grant Basey’s career in February this year.
