3 points by Royal appointment
Charlton Athletic 4 Bristol Rovers 2
Owing to a royal appointment (more on that later), I was left to follow last night's game via Twitter
. As usual the eyewitness reports at the foot of this page will give you a lot more flavour than I can stuck on an island in the Atlantic, albeit with the Queen in situ.
Nevertheless all was rosy in the Chicago Addick
world last night with another 3 points plundered in tough weather conditions against promotion rivals. To me the key thing now is to keep Dave Mooney
and hopefully use the next 7 days to get Elliot and one or both of Youga and Richardson fit.
I have said all season that you can only beat what is put in front of you and Rovers under Trollope and Sir Lennie are the league's highest goalscorers away from home. After losing a two-goal lead it was certainly heartening to hear of a stirring fightback. Parky suddenly appears to have a couple of alternatives in his back pocket and with Bailey finding his mojo and Mooney, Burton and Akpo each with two goals in the last three the area we were lacking in is now thriving because the manager now has some good choices.Reports: Charlton Casual
