Carling Cup Round 4Charlton win 4-3 on penalties
Thank god, thank god! We have made history by reaching the Quarter Finals of the League cup for the first time, but we took our time.
The match, away at Chesterfield, had a bumpy start for the Addicks after the home side went in fron after 3 minute - oops. But none other than Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink equalled the game on the 40th minute.
The second half had another bad start after the home side once again went ahead but this time Darren Bent equalised with around 20 minutes to go.
So the game headed into extra time, with the Addicks seeming to be on top, Hasselbaink decided to go it alone and put us 3-2 in the lead. But in typical Charlton style, with 20 SECONDS
to go, Chesterfield scored an equaliser to take it into penalties.
Fortunately for us, we came through it with Carson saving two, but Hasselbaink did miss his penalty.
So quarter finals, we reached them in the FA cup last year, and with Southend beating Man Utd tonight, we really could get further!
