Unbeaten run continues

Away draw specialists Charlton continued their unbeaten run with a 1-1 draw at Exeter City this afternoon.

The Gtecians made a storming start and a quality cross allowed former Addick Ben Purrington to open the scoring after five minutes with a pinpoint header.

Charlton came close to equalising thtough Dobson just before half time, but the ball was ruled not to have crossed the line and Purrington made the clearance.

Aneke came on a second half substitute and scored the equaliser, well it actually deflected in off Diabatel, but Aneke made good use of Bakinson's cross.  May had a chance to secure all three points towards the end of normal time with the keeper stranded but hit the post.

There were too many overhit balls and once again we looked vulnerable defensively.

Charlton remain 16th, seven points ahead of Port Vale at the head of the relegation zone, although they have a game in hand.   Lower table sides generally did well, but with Cheltenham winning at Fleetwood the Cod Army look to be increasingly at risk.

Karoy Anderson was substituted at Exeter, but Michael Hector thinks that his international experience with Jamaica can only benefit him:

Hector would like to stay at Charlton beyond this season:

Charlton's financial results for 2022/23 should be out soon.   Meanwhile, here are some figures from three other League One clubs:

  1. A pretty awful performance, but another point from the draw we predicted Wyn. Two more wins will see us safe.
