Hull City away. What was the score? Won 2-1
Is it over yet? Christ 11 minutes of injury time, what the f%^@! Absolutely fantastic result tonight, they are the kind of victories that will get us promotion. I 'listened' in alongside 36 others on the Charlton Life
forum, and when the server went down at the end I stared anxiously at the Sky Sports
scoreboard until it changed into bright orange signalling the final whistle. As I've said before.. welcome to being a Charlton fan in the 21st century.
Hull on a Tuesday night will never be an easy place to go and I don't expect it was very pretty as we knuckled down, got embroiled in an on-field punch up, scored with our first real chance and then killed the game off. What also impressed was how we came out 2nd half. Organised and committed we clearly learnt our lessons from Coventry when we fell foul to Coventry's aggressive tactics, but not tonight.
In front of the away end Iwelumo scored his 4th goal of the season and made up for his miss on Saturday, although to be fair he earnt plaudits for his performance up until that. Varney snucked out a poachers goal and the back five put in a much stronger performance, this in a pressure cooker atmosphere.
No doubt there will recriminations after tonight's brawl. Phil Brown has taken a side swipe at us in his press conference but how you condone a bloke who made a poor tackle and then whack a player three times and hold him in a head-lock is beyond me. Recriminations maybe but the Reds keep marching on.Who was at the KC Stadium

: "That incident perhaps affected them more than us. They tried to knock us out of our stride and they did that to some degree. We've now had two tough away trips and did look a bit tired. But technically, there's no doubt about us being good enough."A bottle of fizzy pop for
: Danny Mills. Another absolute stormer, its like he never left and he even was the peacemaker tonight!
