Jes Rak-Sakyi wins POTY

Let’s be honest the best, most consistent, game-changing player won the Addicks’ Player of the Year last night.

The Palace lad was a joy to watch and a credit to himself and his parent club. I’ll be content if those lot from Croydon lend us their next rising star next season.

Rak-Sakyi – POTY?

Jes Rak-Sakyi was today nominated for the EFL League One Young Player of the Season, and deservedly so. Ipswich’s Cameron Humphreys and Plymouth’s Bali Mumba round out the list.

I should also acknowledge Zach Mitchell who was nominated for the L1 Apprentice of the Year. Great achievement.

Charlton Athletic 1 Peterborough United 1

The team that never draws draws against a team that does it a lot.

A very dull first half, a much better 2nd half and a draw probably a fair result. We missed a couple of gilt-edged chances but they hit the bar twice and Maynard-Brewer made a very good double save in the first half.

Miles out for more than a month

Thomas Sandgaard’s summer recruitment policy was shown up for it’s stupidity again today when we were told that Miles Leaburn will be missing with injury for some time.

Manager Ben Garner said: “he’s got some ligament damage to his ankle. He’ll see the specialist next week. But he’s in a protective boot at the moment. He’s certainly going to be out for a period of time.”

Fleetwood Town 1 Charlton Athletic 1

A frustration of Swindon fans last season was that they had too many draws, when they should have won. Yesterday’s draw on the Lancashire coast was the Addicks’ 5th of the season. Our 4th 1-1 in five league outings.

The first half we were terrible. No better than Nigel Adkins’ period last season. The 2nd half we were better and may have even won it at the end.

Wouldn’t we just love to have that echoing around The Valley. We’d all like nothing more than seeing Miles Leaburn make it big (no pun intended), but although physically he is strong, there have been too many examples over the years of young players being thrown in too early, despite what both Thomas Sandgaard and Ben Garner says.

Ben Garner will know what is needed and has inherited a physical aerial striker in Jayden Stockley, who does not suit Garner’s system, and in Garner’s words “a deconditioned” striker in Chuks Aneke, who already has injury concerns a week before the real business starts.
