Only goal difference now separates Charlton from a relegation place after they went down 0-1 at home to Rochdale at The Valley this afternoon, giving the visitors their fifth successive victory. In 18th place, the Addicks are one place above Millwall.
The attendance was about 4,500 down on the last 'football for a fiver' match. In 2012 we got over 10,000 more for an equivalent game against Stevenage.
Charlton started with an unadventurous 4-5-1 formation and Johnnie Jackson failed to score from the penalty spot. Charlton did produce a late rally, but it was not able to secure even a point. It's just two wins out of eleven now. The rainbows seen over The Valley brought no good fortune.
