THE Match Report: Watford 2 - 2 Charlton

Coming from last week's amazing performance against the Hammers, the Addicks faithful went into this match with their hopes high!
A few changes, including Jonothan Fortune being recalled from loan at Stoke, meant we didn't start with the same team that thrashed United 7 days previously. But hey ho life moves on and we had to make sure to take what we can in one of the so called easier fixtures for us this season.
But, saying that, we went 2-0 down within 20 minutes. You couldn't get any worse. I was hoping that we would turn out like United did last week. This remained for the majority of the half and Watford nearly added another just before the break.
But Charlton kept their heads held high, and around 20 minutes into the second half, Luke Young slotted home a goal which resulted from a precision pass from Alexandre Song. Song has been great for us! Long may it continue!
Just as it looked as if we were destined for a loss, Darren Ambrose headed in a Dennis Rommedahl cross to equal the match! A point at least! But our defense was working overtime as Watford were attacking hard.
One moment came where we could have won it. We got Watford on the counter attack with Lisbie, Bent and Rommedahl leading the way. The ball landed before Lisbie, one shot with his left foot could have won the match, but he fannied around with the ball and the shot was blocked. The rebound landed at his feet, which he blasted wide! Cheers Kev!
It's better than nothing but with Wigan winning (and currently as I write United beating Spurs) it could have turned out to not be a good weekend for us!James - Staff Writer
