Fosu hat trick puts Charlton back in play off places

A hat trick from Fosu gave Charlton a 3-1 victory at Fleetwood this afternoon and put them back in the play off places at 5th.

It was a fairly even affair until Fosu pounced on Ricky Holmes' chip towards the far post to put the Addicks ahead. The game then opened up and Fleetwood equalised when Devante Cole fizzed a ball into the box where Bobby Grant was looming to fire a left-footed effort into the bottom-right corner.

Jokes started to circulate on the internet about Charlton being unable to hang on to a lead, but Fosu struck again five minutes before the break as he danced past several static Fleetwood bodies in the box before poking the ball past Alex Cairns.

The home side searched for a leveller in the second half, with boss Uwe Rosler switching to three in attack, but they could not find a breakthrough as Charlton claimed the all-important next goal. Jay Dasilva released Fosu to sprint towards goal, riding the challenge of Town skipper Nathan Pond before firing home to complete his hat-trick.

Charlton were denied a fourth by the flag as Forster Caskey's goal was ruled out.
