Doncaster Rovers 1 Charlton Athletic 1
Why the late subs Karl, why?..
A game dominated but our extreme inability to not put teams away is becoming the story of our season. 15 points we have thrown away in the dying moments of games – Doncaster (a), Oxford (h), Blackpool (h), MK Dons (h), Walsall (a).
We dominated for much of the game but at both ends we are coming up short. If we want to be the team that wins 1-0 each week, then we need a back four that is able to see out games. Yes, there was a lucky deflection leading to Donny’s goal, but what was Lennon doing sat so deep playing Blair onside?
We did sound comfortable but I’m at a loss to understand why Robinson took off Dasilva, a player good at ball retention and able to carry it up the pitch, and replaced him with a clearly unprepared Lennon. Robinson can blame players on not being ruthless, but to me it looked like he managed the game badly from the sidelines.
The results went well for us again, but we should really be a fixture in the top 6, not looking up at it, and we have to be able to finish games, because if we can’t then we won’t get through a two-legged semi-final play-off, let alone the rest of the season.
