Match Report: Charlton 1 - 0 Wigan

My first premiership game as a Charlton season ticket holder in the Upper North was great! Atmosphere, view and the final result! So as I was bored, I could see Olly Addick from my seats (sad I know) and Charly from the Cafc Fans forum urging the lads on! On to the Match! Missing Ambrose from suspension we brought in Kishishev (why Curbs why?!). The match started of slow. We really didn't start as well as we did against Sunderland. But there you go. It went from slow to frustration for the Valley faithful. Powell hitting the post midway through. But call on Darren Bent in the 42nd, cross in from the right and a goal! Bent bringing his tally to 3. Ab Fab! Seconds later it looked as if we would double this lead when Bent caught the defenders sleeping and nearly replicated his second from last week, but this time going inches wide.
Half time great scoreline.
Second half was pretty slow again, a couple of scares from Wigan but nothing too dramatic. 10 minutes to go, we could have got another, Bent hit the post!
We finished the day in second position, behind Spuds on goal difference. I can't complain, we didn't lose, picked up important points, and yet again seen that Bent is effing amazing!
Oh yer I mustn't forget mentioning Powell doing his jumpy tunnel thingy magigy!Man Of The Match:Chris Powell
