What do points make?
Charlton Athletic 2 Stockport County 0
After the first ten minutes I thought I might have to go and fetch my calculator to keep count but alas as often can happen after such a dramatic start the game fizzled out in the second half as we struggled to create any real chances, but with Leeds slipping up again and Swindon losing it was a very valuable 3 points.
We started well and the Stockport commentary team appeared to except it was only a matter of time before we would take the lead, although the goal sounded a real fluke. Nonetheless after shoddy starts against other relegation candidates at home recently it was gratifying to hear us start so strongly. A quick second, a fine header from Akpo from a Richardson cross lifted any nervousness. By all accounts a definite penalty should have been awarded for hands just before the break, which one assumed would have seen us in at the half three goals to the good.
All the same with the shoots of spring around the corner it is about points now and as Norwich move away Leeds play their game in hand on Tuesday at Tranmere, although most Addicks minds will undoubtedly be focused on our next game.Quotes: "So the day will live long in my mind for the opportunity to shake Killer’s hand in the club shop and if we get promoted it will be viewed as a good day in the record books. At this stage of the season that’s fine."
