Charlton Athletic 3 Shrewsbury Town 0
Thanks again to my ever reliable Mother who buzzed my phone in quick succession with goal flashes as I tucked into a big plate of ribs and chips in Rio.
Was nice to hear of us scoring a few goals, and Ricky Holmes already looks a popular and worthy addition. Of course Ricky has a long way to go to reach Jacko legend status.
The attendance, official one at least was the lowest league gate at The Valley for almost 20 years.
Anyway on a positive note 4 points from 3 games represents an okay start. But Walsall away on Saturday represents I think our first real test. Hopefully Slade and the boys can carry tonight’s result forward.

Slade says: “We worked very hard in pre-season and it didn’t come straight away. We thought it might have come Saturday, but we didn’t quite manage to do it, but we did manage to do it tonight.”
