Charlton Athletic 0 Fleetwood Town 0
A desperately dull affair only lifted by a crisp packet invasion which stopped the game after the first minute, and incidentally one of our better chances.
It sounded a game bereft of goal scoring chances, and just about everything else played in a funereal atmosphere with (likely) less than 6,000 in the stadium, not helped by one of the lowest away followings seen since our return to The Valley.
Mark Marshall returned but failed to do much, and was replaced in the 2nd half by the returning Igor Vetokele, just about the only positive from the day. The energy busting Lapslie came on after for Aribo, as Bowyer struggles to find the right mix in his 3-5-2 formation.
Bow said that two midfielders may be added next week before the loan deadline expires and he has Fosu, Reeves and Pearce all back in training Monday.
In the meantime we are looking bang average.
Addicks at The Valley:
Bow: “Look, whatever happens off the pitch is happening. I can’t control that. I can’t control stop the fans throwing crisp packets onto the pitch. All I can control is what is happening on the pitch regarding the players. That’s what I’ll keep doing.”
