Back on the front line tonight and in front of the camera’s to boot. Sky Sports 1 show our JPT cup game at 7.45, which is 3.45 here. Despite this and the desperate result on Sunday close to a 1,000 Addicks are expected to frequent one of Griffin Park’s four pubs and may even be bothered to stand behind the goal in the cold later.
18-year old Carl Jenkinson maybe given a start. Parky you would have thought will remember how Myles Weston gave Simon Francis the runaround in the league defeat earlier in the season. I remember and I wasn’t even there. Abbott and Martin may get the nod up front and captain Dailly makes a welcome return from suspension.
Of course we have now reached the stage of the competition where defeat will be met by disappointment, unlike any of the previous rounds. Although I remember very well not being that bothered when we played Norwich in the semi-finals of the Full Members Cup in 1987 at Sellout. In fact after going 1-0 down in the 89th minute, I’ll be surprised if more than 3,000 odd fans witnessed the extra-time victory. Here’s hoping for as much excitement tonight. Come on you reds.
