Another 2-1 away defeat

It's a game of fine margins, but Charlton went down to a 2-1 defeat at Stadium MK tonight.  The Addicks went ahead through a Stockley goal, but MK responded in three minutes and then scored the winner in the second half.

Charlton started well in the first half and pressed the home side.  A well-delivered free kick by Morgan enabled Stockley to score with a header.

Then a Dobson error opened up a gap and Tottenham Hotspur loan player Parrott was able to equalise.  Once again Charlton failed to hold on to a lead.

Inniss was given a rather harsh yellow card.  A Clare shot was blocked.  DJ fed Stockley but Fisher made a great save.

The three minutes added on saw pressure by the home side.

HT: 1-1

Inniss was replaced at half time by Deji Elerewe.  He was soon called on to challenge Parrott.

Washington pulled up off the ball and hobbled off.  Kirk replaced him and got into the game more as it went on.

A Dons free kick was blocked by Famewo, but the ball was not cleared as it was easy for the striker to score from six yards out.

Charlton had not been creating anything, but from now on MK dominated possession with a passing game.  The seven minutes added on saw the home side dominant.

Charlton are now 20th.

Nigel Adkins said he thought we were good for the first 20 minutes, it was an awful goal we conceded and the momentum of the game changed.   They were better in the second half.  We didn't get the ball. I introduced Kirk earlier than I wanted to.   They are a very good passing side, they got the flow of the game.  We fell short in the second half performance.

Adkins said that the 17-year old Elerewe was exceptional, the future is very bright for him.

Conor Washington felt something go in his back.   Inniss should be good for the weekend.
