I knew it would be a good day when I arrived at The Valley. Walking to the newly renamed Bartrams bar, I thought I recognised this spikey haired blond footballer. It was none other than John Robinson! Legend! I had to shake his hand and greet him, to which he obliged with a smile! Wicked!

Dean Kiely's first match back at The Valley since his departure in January would have brought mixed feelings to him, and on their current run of great form, I am sure he thought he would walk away with three points.

All was going well for Pompey when in the 41st Minute, D'Alessandro unleashed a belter into the top left hand corner of the goal, leaving Myhre with no chance! Gutting for us fans.

Two first half injurys to Marcus Bent and Jonothan Spector meant we had to use up two substitutions with Jay Bothroyd and Osei Sankofa respectivily. Also Jerome Thomas was surprisingly replaced with Darren Ambrose at half time, this brought some well needed pace to the match.

It looked like we were down and out until the 72nd Minute. Darren Bent found himself with the ball at the edge of Pompey's area, he cut the ball inside and while we were all expecting a shot, he picked out Bryan Hughes who cooly slotted the ball into the back of the net! Amazing play, this was also when we were down to 10-men because Hermann was getting treatment on the sidelines. Seconds later Ambrose was at a one-on-one with Kiely who saved the attempted chip shot. Great effort!

5 minutes before the end of the match and who else can you call on to get you the win, Darren Bent. He outmuscled two defenders to let himself run on to the ball, maybe some thought he had put the ball too far infront of him, but his lethal finishing meant it went past Kiely into the back of the net for a Charlton win. An amazing match and what a way to lift our spirits!
