Job done

Charlton beat Burton Albion 2-1 at The Valley tonight to go 10 points ahead of Doncaster in 6th place.

All the significant action occurred in the first half. Taylor scored from a penalty on six minutes. Then the ball hit Bauer's arm and the Brewers were able to equalise with their own penalty.

Then on 33 minutes Reeves took advantage of a Taylor cross to score the winner with a diving header.

Report from Louis Mendez here: Charlton edge out Brewers

Lee Bowyer said that he thought that Charlton looked a little bit lethargic and the fans helped them through the second half. He would guard against any complacency: Charlton won't be taking their foot off the gas


  1. Another 3 points, 3 days after a hard fought win against Pompey. But the 'Performance experts' are whining.
    As you so rightly titled your latest piece, "Job done".

  2. The players were leggy after Saturday's efforts, the wind was against us second half but they held on. Great effort from the team. Should be noted that Cullen was outstanding last night.
