Afternoon of frustration
Charlton Athletic 0 Oldham Athletic 0
It sounded a thoroughly frustrating afternoon for the Addicks. A poor first half with Oldham comfortably breaking up our game by packing the midfield and forcing Jonjo back into the middle of the field leaving Burton isolated, equalling the biggest threat to Parkinson's 4-4-1-1 formation. Nevertheless in the 2nd half we were much better and one chance converted or the bar being an inch or two higher then we'd all be going to bed dreaming of 3 more points.
We will face plenty of other games like this one at home this season and if we are to succeed then we will have to learn to encounter organised, unimaginative and clinical sides. Teams and the ones with the better managers are working us out and the facts are that it's now three league games without a goal after we were so proficient in front of the net earlier in the season and close your ears, that is one win in six. Maybe time for some jiggling by Parky. Both Wagstaff and McKenzie sounded lively when they came on and McLeod got a lot of mentions but unfortunately mostly for the wrong reasons.
I will end with some plusses though. Another great attendance, it sounded like Youga had a stormer and despite Spring improving, Semedo appears ready to return.Reports: Drinking During the Game
