Wycombe Wanderers 1 Charlton Athletic 2
Oh Nicky Bailey you are the love of my life.
A brilliant virtuoso performance from Nicky Bailey yesterday galvanising the team together, especially in the last twenty minutes to give us a vital win at a misty Adams Park. My personal pessimism barometer was going up and down all game not helped having to endure Emma on BBC Radio London giving me no direction whatsoever to what was actually happening on the pitch. Think listening to the shipping forecast and it ending without giving you any guidance of what the weather is going to be like out at sea.
We started off a bit ring rusty, understandably after a long lay-off, but Jonjo put us in front against the run of play and the frustrating thing was that we didn't add to our lead before half-time. As Norwich were running riot at Colchester and Leeds were losing I was getting anxious that we couldn't finish the game off and sure enough old doomsayer Tony Hudd predicted the inevitable equaliser.
Parky made three brave changes and rallied by noisy support, Shelvey and our captain we regained the lead and held on for a very important win when one considers what concluded at Cuckoo Farm and St James' Park and we now we move on to The Valley Tuesday.
Paul Lambert produced a remarkable double yesterday and Norwich are not only winning but knocking teams out of sight. Leeds meanwhile are looking slightly agitated and with two big cup games this week and Jermaine Beckford's on-off departure
taking all the headlines they've suddenly become less invincible. Colchester meanwhile have conceded 12 goals in two games. The race is on and we are in it.
