Charlton Athletic 3 Fleetwood Town 2
I was off the radar yesterday. I think that is what the glued-to-the-election-other-half said to me when I eventually got home last night before falling asleep on the sofa.
Thanks to Benjy Nurick’s Twitter feed I did manage to follow the game and at 2-0 with us steaming forward at every opportunity and not having conceded a goal forever the game sounded a forgone conclusion with just over half an hour gone.
Spoke too soon I said to myself after Ched Evans scored twice in two minutes to bring Fleetwood level.
If the first half hour was a show of quick passing and movement and overloading our opponents in offensive areas at every opportunity, then the 2nd half was a gritty togetherness combined with quick counter attacking to get all three points.
Overall, and I didn’t see it, it sounded a dogged yet incisive display, and it is important to learn to win all ways.
Fleetwood are a good side and will be up there at season end making the three points even more valuable if possible. Pleased for Albie too.
That is a run of 7 tough games in a short window, and now we get a bit of a breather from the league. COYA.
Bow’s thoughts: “I thought it was a very good game. Two good teams, trying to play the game in the right way.

The near two week break after the Orient game will give Bowyer the chance to rest and refresh the players not involved in international games. It will be interesting to see the line ups against Plymouth and Orient, Matthews, Pearce Vennings and Barker will probably be involved, Wiredu, Henry and Mingi possibly will feature from the bench.
