George Lapslie to make move permanent

According the Rich Cawley, Charlton have cleared the way for George Lasplie to make his move to Mansfield Town permanent. There will be no fee.

George has really impressed at The Stags playing in 16 league and cup games scoring 5 from a defensive midfield position.

Ajose leaves for season

Hardly a surprise. Nicky Ajose left for Mansfield today on loan for the season. The striker signed for the Addicks in the summer of 2016. His contract runs out this summer. He has scored 11 goals in all competitions. A couple of those were big ones, but in all honesty he has failed pretty miserably to make his mark at The Valley. The supposed £800,000 signing has often looked uninterested although Bowyer praised his commitment today.

Charlton Athletic 5 Mansfield Town 0

We showed once again tonight that this Charlton team has goals in it as we crashed five past Mansfield Town to progress to the next round of the FA Cup where we will travel to Doncaster Rovers.

We began with a strong looking line-up which included Billy Clarke and Patrick Bauer. Both were replaced late in the game, after we were 2-0 ahead. One surprise in the starting line up was the inclusion of Lyle Taylor, who had only just flown back from Montserrat. Sarr partnered Bauer, and Toby Stevenson got a whole game in his preferred wing back role. Phillips was in goal.

Fosu, Lapslie, Pratley and Clarke were the diamond shaped midfield and Ajose, desperate for a goal and possibly in Bowyer’s last chance saloon, played up top with Taylor.

Mansfield Town 1 Charlton Athletic 1

I’m a bit old fashioned and would like us to take the FA Cup seriously and progress a bit, at least until the 3rd Round. In saying that I fully get why Bowyer made so many changes today, many of which were enforced on him.

There were 9 changes from the game at Walsall, and only 5 sat on the bench. Checkatrade hero Toby Stevenson and Taylor Maloney both began in a midfield five. Dillon Phillips got a chance in goal, but the biggest opportunity of all was for Nicky Ajose. Albie Morgan was on the bench that also saw the return of Billy Clarke after 11 months out.

No. 11 will play

Mansfield Town. Ball no. 11 was pulled out of the hat pretty early and we will make the trip to the League Two side on November 10th, unless it gets put on the box.

Sadly, two teams I follow, Eastbourne Borough and Welling fell at the last Qualifying Round stage but Maidstone, Ebbsfleet, Aldershot and Bromley all made it through and all got rewarded with home ties. Bromley’s game at home to Peterborough has TV written all over it.
