To the Londoners 2-0

Charlton progressed to the 3rd round of the FA Cup tonight with a 2-0 win over Gateshead.  A first half header was scored by Jayden Stockley from an excellent assist from Conor Washington.  A Ben Purrington shot was then deflected in by Stockley in the second half.

Gateshead played their part in the game, although not to the extent that the biased ITV4 commentary tried to suggest.   They had their opportunities, but lost their composure in front of goal.  Stephen Henderson had to make three saves in succession to keep them out ar the end of the match.

Deji Elerewe had an excellent game at centre half and was praised by Stockley afterwards.  DJ started well, but faded in the second half and was eventually substituted.

Johnnie Jackson was impressed with how Gateshead tried to play football:
