THE Match Report: Charlton 2 - 0 Newcastle
Published Monday, March 19, 2007 by JamesBB2 | E-mail this post
Another game, another important match, another cup final and another 3 points needed - and taken!
To have any chance of survival, Charlton really need to get the gap [between us and safety] out of their head and just keep on picking up the points!
We were asked to get behind the players again, but no one really seemed to be bothered in the first half! Maybe a little too much Guinness celebrating St Patricks Day the night before, or was that just me!?
But the first half really was diabolical, we were better but it really was creating no chances. It took until the 55th minute and Zheng Zhi, who was making his full debut, to put the Addicks 1 infront after a rebound from Darren Bent's fiesty free kick. Zhengy decided to head it in, but it seemed to take forever!
From this point on, we were all over the Geordies! And in the 88th minute, Zhengy won us a penalty, thanks to a Nobby Solano foul. Now Benty had been subbed off, so Jerome Thomas was the man to cooly slot it home and secure the 3 points for us.
The roar at the end summed it up, I really think we can stay up! C'mon Charlton!
