Scunthorpe United 0 Charlton Athletic 0
Sounded a decent game and I would happily have taken a clean sheet against a side that has been banging in the goals. The Iron had scored 9 in the preceding two home league games.
Slade set us up not to lose and waited until extraordinarily late to add some extra attacking force, which probably cost us all 3 points but with Bauer back alongside a much better Pearce we sounded much tighter at the back and all four defenders came out of the game with credit.
What a shame that Jacko couldn’t win it at the end with a trademark free-kick which cannoned off the woodwork.
A good point that continues our fair start to the season. It’ll be nice to see Slade take us to Oxford on Saturday with an attempt to bring all 3 points home.
