Charlton Athletic 2 Plymouth Argyle 1
23 shots on goal and 16 corners as the Addicks’ perseverance eventually paid dividends yesterday as we stretched our impressive run. I was following the match at Miami airport and from what I could make out, our midfielders were excellent 2nd half led by Reeves and Aribo as we pushed and pushed for a winner and didn’t take the option of just lumping it.
Good to see that we kept going to the very end and got the deserved 3 points. Bowyer didn’t appear to panic and just added Igor to the mix late on to chase as Bowyer’s men kept knocking on the door and the winner eventually came. Cue a longer than perhaps necessary fist pump at Gate E7 as gave my boarding pass to a concerned looking agent.
Plymouth have to better than their position suggests. Are they? They took the lead but we hit back instantly. Karlan is going great guns, which is so good to see and only just 21 this week. The boy is definitely coming of age.
Addicks at The Valley: Albury Addick; And Nothing Else Matters
Bow: “Our fans were outstanding again today from the first minute until the end. I know I keep saying it but it makes a difference, we scored another late goal but we are this season, we just keep going and going and that’s a credit to the fans and the lads. They just keep going until the end.”
Elsewhere: The Barnsley v Burton game was sadly cancelled. Pompey dropped two points at home to Wycombe, but the rest of the top six all won. Peterborough sit top after winning 4-2 at Gillingham, Walsall won at Oxford, Donny beat Bradford and Sunderland easily saw off Rochdale.
