Whoever the manager is he is not on the pitch and he can't prevent players making basic errors and a misunderstanding between Famewo and Amos allowed Wimbledon to equalise when the Addicks were 2-1 ahead. Curbs said it was one of the worst goals he had ever seen, an absolute disaster.
The first half showing was strong, the second half less so. Curbs thought we looked tired in the second half. He also thought there were too many changes in the formation. We never looked settled, we never looked comfortable. We looked dangerous in the first half with Millar on the left.
Conor Washington coming off with a hamstring injury after a few minutes was a blow.
Nigel Adkins said roller coaster was the right word. We scored a couple of two goals, conceded two horrendous ones. We started the second half quite brightly, the second goal was really disappointing. It's a great opportunity for me to have a consideration of everybody. I have to get to know all the players and their strengths. You can't be conceding two goals a game if you want to win things consistently. The lads will have Sunday and Monday off. I will be able to watch the under 23s. It was good to be in the dugout again.
Wimbledon started the game at a frantic pace and Charlton gave the ball away three times. Washington had to be replaced by DJ on four minutes. On nine minutes Amos got the ball out well, Morgan picked it up and fed Millar who turned provider for Stockley who scored with a header.
On 14 minutes after Millar gave the ball away when had options, Amos and Pearce both slipped, Gunter was out of position and Pigott fed Longman who scored with a shot along the ground.
On 20 minutes Millar made a run and passed to DJ who put in a powerful left strike to score his first Charlton goal.
Amos claimed a Wimbledon corner. The game entered a scrappy period, but the keeper had to save from Millar. Shinnie was way over. In time added on Gunter had to concede a corner and Stockley cleared with a header.
An early Charlton corner was cleared at the near post again. On 55 minutes a Charlton corner allowed Wimbledo to break and a dangerous ball was put across the goal. Shinnie was just wide on 59 minutes.
On 64 minutes Charlton gifted the equaliser. Amos played the ball to Famewo, he played a short ball back and Longman pounced to score.
On 73 minutes Pigott hit the post. On 77 minutes Pratley replaced DJ and Schwartz replaced Morgan. Schwartz did very little as far as I could tell.
Aneke got a harsh yellow card on 80 minutes. Charlton were finding it difficult to mount attacks. On 84 minutes Wimbledon were awarded a free kick in the D. Amos had to make a great save from Pigott, punching the ball away.
Aneke hit the post in three minutes added on.
Charlton remain in 6th place.
This week I recall when Charlton beat Liverpool 6-0: https://retrocharlton.blogspot.com/2021/03/when-charlton-beat-liverpool-6-0.html
