Charlton Athletic 1 Rotherham United 1
The apathy, you can feel it running pretty deep amongst Addicks at the moment. The 2nd lowest Valley league crowd this season (despite a healthy Rotherham following) had to endure a much needed 3 points snatched away from them in injury time as Guy Luzon substituted a forward and put another defender on to entice pressure.
Sat in my car with my phone in my hand, the probability of that happening was about as obvious as night following day.
I am willing to give Roland Duchâtelet until Monday night then I might have a right old paddy.
The Valley crowd did get to see a first league goal since Boxing Day, from Jordan Cousins, but there didn’t appear to be any demonstration of an increased desire or the need to impress the new boss.
One shot on goal according to the stats, five defensive players on the bench, the Covered End singing to Luzon “you don’t know what you’re doing,” Lepoint confirming that he is not up to The Championship, at least yet, and the players running through the motions. Spreading like a disease. Apathy. It’s depressing.
Did anyone see any small shoots of recovery?
Around The Championship: Focused solely on the bottom now. Millwall won at Forest, their first win in 9 games, Blackpool beat Brighton 1-0, the Tangerines second successive home win, Wigan drew 0-0 at Ipswich and Leeds won at Huddersfield and my best wishes to Tommy Smith, who was taken by air ambulance to hospital.
