Charlton Athletic 1 Sheffield United 1
A thoroughly undeserved point on Saturday after Patrick Bauer equalized in taxi time against most people’s promotion favourites Sheffield United.
Despite United’s dominance and a superb display from young Dylan Phillips, the Blades only had a single goal to show for it, a well worked free kick move. As we all know one goal is never often enough and sure enough from a lovely Adam Chicksen free kick, the big German bundled in late.
After, in the remaining taxi time, we may have snatched it, but if a point was fortunate and then three would have been
hilarious hard on the 3,000+ travelling Blades.
The game was again held up due to plastic taxis being thrown on the pitch. It is up for debate whether these type of protests are proving any worth or not, but what is not up for question is that the last time these two sides met in League One, twice as many Charlton fans were at the game. Less than 5 years ago almost 21,000 watched Chris Powell’s side win 1-0.
Karl Robinson begins tomorrow and it is expected that Kevin Nugent will stay but will be joined on a busy training field by Richie Barker.
