Still over 50 years without a victory

Charlton chief Karl Robinson gives it large about the referees' conspiracy

It is now over 50 years since Charlton beat Bury at home and this afternoon's game at The Valley ended 1-1, the same score as at half time. Charlton dominated possession 58 per cent to 4 per cent and had eight shots on target to three for the visitors. However, Bury committed 19 fouls to six for Charlton.

Magennis scored on 38 minutes, making use of a pass from Forster-Caskey, after Charlton fell behind to an early goal from Jermaine Beckford.

After a lacklustre first half, Charlton began creating more opportunities in the second, with Billy Clarke seeing a deflected effort parried away by Murphy, while Patrick Bauer should have done better with an off target header. Murphy was kept busy, showing good reflexes to deny Forster-Caskey from close range before tipping Magennis' last-minute header wide to earn Lee Clark's side a point. No surprise that Murphy was named as star man by the Football League Paper.

The match showed how much we depend on Ricky Holmes.

The Addicks have slipped out of the play off places to seventh. It's a sobering fact that seven of our nine games have been against teams 14th or lower.

Supremo Karl Robinson has complained about his lack of attacking options and says that the substitutes who do come on don't make a big enough impact. He was also critical of his players' performance in the first twenty minutes: Honest admission
