Last night I put up a tweet for you guys to answer to and the question was do you prefer Ben Purrington or Alfie Doughty at left-back?

Thankfully this was met with a good reception and has given me the chance to write an article based on your opinions and this will be the first of an article series called Vital Debate.

What Vital Charlton is all about is giving the fans a voice and I will be doing things like this regularly for all of you Charlton fans to enjoy!

First off we will start with what I think and then move on to what you the fans have to say, first off I think with Ben Purrington he is more of a defensive player although sometimes it doesn’t show and he needs to work on how solid he is, because we all know there is a good player in him.

With Alfie Doughty he has come on the scene and surprised us all with how good he actually is, he is very quick as shown in his assist for Macauley Bonne in the Sheffield Wednesday game and now Lee Bowyer is starting to have a sense of trust around Alfie as he started again on Saturday’s defeat to Middlesbrough. He’s only young but he has started off his career in a very bright way.

Please take part in our poll too!

Who do you prefer, Alfie Doughty or Ben Purrington?
