A very big game will take place at The Valley tonight against South-London rivals Milwall as we look to extend our cushion above the relegation zone if the result goes our way in the Barnsley v Stoke game.
Can you get 12/12 on this Charlton History Quiz? I bet you can’t, but feel free to prove me wrong!
The players do seem a bit more ready for this test than what they have been in recent years and I hope without the pressure of the fans there they can pull off a win against Millwall for the first time since 1996.
Dillon Phillips is one man who has been in great form, he hasn’t had an amazing amount to do in the last three games, but when he is called upon you can always count on him to keep the ball out of our net.
Phillips has not conceded a goal for about 343 minutes of football which is not bad considering he only had six clean sheets to his name before the season restarted.
Dillon Phillips explained his motivation going into the Millwall game and here is what he had to say
“The thought of being relegated is enough to get anyone motivated, as much as we’d love for everyone to be there, we know what it means to the club and the fans so we don’t need an audience to get us up for it. It’s another game where we need three points to stay up and that’s all we’re bothered about.”
“To be fair to the lads we’ve played three games and I’ve only had to make two or three saves max, we limit teams to a few chances and I stay switched on when I’m called upon.
“One save a game is fine for me, I don’t want any more than that! You have to stay switched on whether you’re being worked for 90 minutes or you have one save to make. It shows we’re performing better collectively and I don’t have much to do, that’s what we’re looking for. We want another six clean sheets,”
He has been a rock at the back for us, as much as he can. Obviously we can leak goals and it’s not always Dillon’s fault, but he can pull off some amazing saves, one that sticks out is the save against QPR, I feel that he is very good in one on one situations.
A very reliable keeper, let’s just not mention what happened at Wembley though!
