It was a busy day at work….

On a deceptively mild evening in Milton Keynes, Chris Powell adopted a naively unbalanced formation for this vital clash. Powell once again proved he is tactically unsure of his best team, as his side sought to avoid a fifth defeat in six.

The first fifteen minutes were cagey, with Powell’s men seemingly unable to gain a foothold. Benson was unlucky with a 28th minute half-chance, after finding himself on the end of a mishit Francis cross.

McCormack and Semedo were typically uncreative, placing too much pressure on Racon and Wagstaff. In defence, Dailly was uncomfortably slow whilst alongside him Jenkinson again displayed signs of promise.

The MK Dons opener was brilliantly taken as Powell fizzed in a low shot. At the other end, Charlton offered little threat, and were too reliant on pointless long balls. Despite falling behind, Powell appeared deep in thought on the sidelines, clueless how to turn the game around.

The half-time whistle was greeted with boos by the not surprisingly disappointing away support.

Reid all about it

Forgive me but I don’t get to watch my team much. So when I get the opportunity to see them live, not least witness them win in the final minutes, I can get a bit over-excited.

When Waggy ran into the arms of joyous Addicks after getting the winner last night I couldn’t have cared less if it was the paint pot, the tea pot or the piss pot trophy. A win is a win and it is worth celebrating…. and I did last night by the way but that is another story.

Phew. As I have often done, I switched to the away commentary team on CAFC Player once I heard Emma open up her gob on the Charlton link, and I have to say I enjoyed listening to two blokes, slightly biased but knowledgeable and to hear them give an  unblemished perspective on our individual players and team.
