Gills manager escapes curse of Charlton

Gillingham manager Ady Pennock offers a rare example of a manager not being sacked after playing Charlton when that was scheduled to happen. According to The Times he was due to be informed at the end of the game by director of football Peter Taylor and chairman Paul Scally that his services were no longer required.

Noberto Solano had been lined up to replace him. Solano was the first Peruvian to play top flight football in this country and has been working as Peru's assistant coach.

Unfortunately, the Gills bosses failed to take into account Charlton's tendency to lose matches they should be able to win and Pennock has got a stay of execution.
