"WE ARE STAYING UP SAID WE ARE STAYING UP" were the chants of the North Stand Faithful minutes after Talal El Karkouri scored the goal that lifted us off the bottom of the table and maybe the goal that turns our season around.
We definately deserved the win as we were the better team. I noticed, from behind by drum, that there was a sense of elecricity from the fans tonight. It may be because it was a night match but one of the longest ever C-A-F-C chants happened at the beginning of the first and second halves. It was great.
We came close a couple of times in the first with Lloyd Sam (making his full Premiership debut) coming the closest. But if it were not for the expert skills of Scott Carson, we wouldn't have come away winners. he made some point blank saves which Blackburn really should have scored.
But right from the beginning of the second, Charlton came close again with a great one-two from Lloyd Sam into the box, just missing Darren Bent.
It looked as if it would be a dissapointing draw, but deep into injury time, Charlton got a free kick at the edge of the area, after Marcus Bent's run was blocked. Talal El Karkouri and Andy Reid lined themselves up, just as my mate James said "Don't let The elk shoot" he takes a run up and GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOALLLLLL! He curved it around the wall into the net, an amazing free kick and the fans went mental.
This is what we needed and the fans spent around 10 minutes celebrating after the final whistle. maybe this is the turn around point! Up The AddicksJames - Staff Writer
