Charlton Athletic 2 Southend United 1
That Billy Clarke is some player..
I looked at the Southend team before the game and thought it looked pretty useful and Phil Brown carries a small squad that has injuries. The Shrimpers by all accounts were organized and carried forward threat, and they dominated possession in the early stages as we struggled to impose ourselves. All those things considered today was a very good victory and momentum is building as is fan belief.
Very early days, but Robinson has built a team ethos, and that shone today. And also, how the heck has Ricky Holmes never played at a higher level?
Two goals close together is always dreamy. Josh Magennis is hot at the moment and he finished a nice team move with his head before Ricky added his regular worldly. Of course we still had to make it difficult when White pulled one back unmarked from a corner. Southend threw balls and men forward and Magennis headed one off the line us we hung on to go 2nd.
