Charlton's first win in nine

The tunnel jump was back as Charlton beat Exeter 4-2.  Charlton are now 11th in the table.  As Curbs said, let's enjoy tonight.

An early effort by Rak-Sakyi was not far wide.   Charlton started quite brightly, but Exeter looked dangerous on the counter.

Charlton went ahead on 19 minutes through Leaburn, the ball taking a deflection after an assist from Dobson.  Brown came close to equalising for Exeter.

Charlton went 2-0 ahead on 23 minutes through an own goal after great work by Fraser on the edge of the area.

A shot by Harper from distance was not too far over.

A snap shot by Exeter on 36 minutes put them back in the game.

I thought that the right wing-back Caprice was being allowed too much space.

Curbs thought it was the best we had seen of Charlton this season in the first 20-25 minutes.   Scott Minto thought that Leaburn was fast becoming our number one striker.

HT: 2-1

Sessegnon managed to prevent Stansfield getting through on goal on 58 minutes.

Charlton were in danger after Fraser lost possession in midfield.

Leaburn required treatment and hobbled off.   Morgan came on.   Clare replaced Sessegnon.

The game became more open.  After an Exeter corner, the ball cannoned off the crossbar.

Steve Brown said we were giving away balls we shouldn't be giving away, but there were tied legs out there.

Kirk came off, along with Rak-Saki.  Payne came on along with Backett-Taylor.

On 81 minutes Aneke replaced Stockley.   Blackett-Taylor advanced on the wing, Dobson controlled the ball and Aneke scored off the post to make it 3-1.

In time added on, good work by Blackett-Taylor and Aneke allowed Payne to make it 4-1.

The referee gave a penalty against Aneke allowing Exeter to make it 4-2.   O'Connell was booked for kicking the ball away.

Curbs said it was a thoroughly deserved win.  Blackett-Taylor was devastating when he came on, he caused all sorts of problems.   The only downside was Miles.  Dobson was his man of the match.

Ben Garner reckons that Charlton would be six or eight points better off if Aneke had been fit all season: https://londonnewsonline.co.uk/charlton-athletic-boss-ben-garner-makes-big-chuks-aneke-claim-after-4-2-win-over-exeter/
