Rotherham United 0 Charlton Athletic 1
Ahhhh. Enjoy that one Addicks. Out of the blue came a very well deserved win on the road against a very good side.
A solid defensive display with another dominating performance from MacGillivray with Pearce once again relishing and coming out on top of a stiff battle against a team that pep your box with a range of balls.
I wonder how many games Pearce has played in this season when we’ve had a clean sheet?
We again started the game well but didn’t fade and although we had to weather some pressure the attacking stats were all in our favour. All square at the half, which started late after someone was taken ill in the crowd — I hope they are okay.
It was an unlikely match-winner but George Dobson deserved every yard of it as his scorching shot sailed past their keeper and rippled the next in front of a hard core group of happy Addicks on 55 minutes.
After that we looked pretty comfortable and could have added to the scoreline. As the game closed with Stockley heading away every cross and Washington threatening on the counter the final whistle signalled one of the best results of the season.
If only there were a few more to cherish!
Jacko: “I thought we defended brilliantly, especially our penalty box and our goalkeeper. I felt that if we stayed in a compact shape, I thought we had a such a threat on the counter attack,”
