Charlton stay nine points clear

The Addicks stayed nine points clear at the top of League 1 after a 1-1 draw at Scunthorpe today.   Sheffield United drew 1-1 at home with Tranmere Rovers allowing the Massives to draw level with them on points after win at Notts County.   Huddersfield in fourth place are five points behind the two Sheffield sides after their 1-1 draw at Colchester.

Scunthorpe thus confirmed their position as League 1 draw specialists.   Bradley Wright-Phillips put the Addicks ahead after 6 minutes, the assist coming from a cross from the right from Scott Wagstaff.   It almost became two sixty seconds later, following a Johnnie Jackson free kick, but the shot from Hollands was blocked.

The Iron levelled from the penalty spot after 21 minutes when Rhoys Wiggins cut down Thompson.

The home side had the better of the second half, but Hamer made some good saves which is encouraging to hear.

Elsewhere, Jose Semedo has made it clear how pleased he is to be playing for a truly massive club.  The one time Valley hero replied to the question "As you know, Charlton now look certain for promotion, do you have any regrets in leaving?" - 'No, none at all. It was the best thing to do in my life. Sheffield Wednesday are bigger, have the better atmosphere, big fans, best fans'
