Mikkel and dimed
Charlton Athletic 1 Bristol Rovers 1
I have to admit I was quite worried about last night’s game. It had all the makings for me of an upset so in the end I was pleased to take a draw.
It was a frustating afternoon for me. A busy work day spent mostly out of the office meant I was unable to follow the game except for some concealed glances at my Blackberry. However upon reading the reports it sounded like a decent performance and we had plenty of chances to take all three points. So I look at it that Rovers grabbed the unexpected point that Yeovil should have done on Saturday. It can work that way and the Gasheads will be rightly pleased with their week’s work on the road.
Like a week ago it was a goalkeeper that was the stand-out player, this time Rovers’ Mikkel Andersen. Once again Akpo made a big difference when he came on and with a list of minor injuries to contend with Parky may well make some changes for Saturday’s Cup game at home to Luton. I can see Akpo paired up front with fit-again Anyinsah. Matt Fry will be suspended and new loan signing Marcel Seip is cup-tied.
Meanwhile league results elsewhere kept the status quo though and an improving Brentford did us a nice favour beating Colchester away.
