My pre-game thoughts were somewhat lost in this Mail on Sunday
non-story today and then the aftermath post on Charlton Life
. Like many issues this one can be saved for either Tuesday morning or May 30th.
No sugar coating needs to be added to justify how important tomorrow night's game is. I accept that our financial situation may not be much better if we win promotion and the season could be spent in a relegation battle but this has been a tough and troubling campaign for most Addicks and another dose of Division 3 would be hard to swallow.
The aftermath again can wait. What we need at 7.45pm tomorrow night is a crowd and team bound by togetherness and a spirit that makes us all proud to support our special club.
I was surprised that Parky changed the team on Friday night after the performances that came before it but he has to change it again tomorrow as we need to pursue goals, without forgetting how important it is to keep it secure and sensible at the back especially noting how quick Swindon were on the counter. I wonder if Sodje will be bandaged up again and will start?
A huge, huge night then and I wish I could be there. I'll be watching though. Come on you reds, let's go.
