This is becoming quite the occurrence, isn’t it? Another ugly win for the Addicks on Tuesday night as we beat Burton Albion 2-1 in only our second competitive game against each other as we maintained our 100% record against The Brewers. Charlton is now also on a four-game winning streak in the league which is something we have really needed as a team to boost our spirits, even more, to go on that road to promotion.
I have seen in many fan groups saying that Charlton are not big contenders to go up this season, but I think after our recent streak people’s opinions on us might change. We have a strong team although we may not out and out win every game, we battle until the very end and last night was a prime example of that as our skipper Jason Pearce headed in the 88th minute to take the three points back to SE7.
Our academy graduate Karlan Grant also bagged his 10th of the season to draw level from the penalty spot in the 32nd minute. This season he has been absolutely brilliant and compared to all the other seasons he has had at this club he is having his best time yet. Just shows what a difference a year can make after he was sent on loan to Crawley.
The fans once again a superb away following, singing their hearts out and making sure we get behind the team in the best way we can. When we get behind them as we can they can do some amazing and unexpected things just like last night who would have thought we would win after a performance like that.
It was a very scrappy game for us, but just like the Bristol Rovers game, we battled we may not have dominated the game but we know we can bring home the points when we put our minds to it and once again we have shown that we can come away with the win after an ugly performance. We look on to Doncaster in the FA Cup on Saturday can we extend this unbeaten run and book our place in the 3rd round? Get down The Valley on Saturday and support the lads!
