Lisbie was among the players who seemed to relish playing at The Valley; his two excellent finishes also jogging the memory of Pardew who is sure to require the in-form front man during the Premiership run-in.

Donovan Simmonds rounded off the victory with a smart strike late on, but it was Lisbie’s fourth goal in three games that stole the show and with Jimmy-Floyd Hasselbaink injured, it can only augur well for the Addicks for the remainder of the campaign.

While Lisbie and Bryan Hughes provided the experience, the main draw for a healthy Valley gathering was newcomer Chris Dickson, who made his SE7 bow after outings at Fulham and West Ham United.

It proved to be a frustrating night for the 22-year-old forward, though, with a couple of decent scoring chances passing him by.

  • Does Lisbie deserve a recall? To be honest i think he is our poorest striker currently on the books. What do you think?

  • Ill agree with you there dave but i keep seeing clips of his hatrick vs Liverpool a couple of years ago, how badly i would love him to do it again this weekend.
