A 1-1 draw against playoff hopefuls Walsall on the weekend, means Charlton have stopped the losing rot. This week the Addicks’ have picked up four points from a possible six. However, the players had mix emotions about the result on the weekend and wanted all three points.
In midweek Charlton Athletic saw out a 2-1 victory against Scunthorpe United, and the 1-1 draw at The Valley on the weekend means the Addicks’ have had an improved week. Before their win against Scunthorpe in midweek, Charlton were winless in eight. In fact, they had not won since their impressive 4-1 victory against Bristol Rovers in late January.
Tony Watt was the man to ensure Charlton got something out of the game on the weekend. A strong and accurate strike across the penalty box in the second half saw The Valley roar (despite the dwindling attendances) in excitement. It was also Watt who converted the late leveler through a penalty against Scunthorpe midweek, is the Scotsman finding form?
After the game on Saturday afternoon, Lewis Page and Tony Watt spoke out on Twitter to make clear their thoughts on the game.
Tony Watt had mixed emotions about the result. The Scottish striker was happy to score and praised the superb support from the fans but wanted all three points.
Charlton left-back, Lewis Page, had a strong performance in a red shirt yesterday. The January signing was gutted that the side could not net the second to take all three points.
Point at home today, we wanted more but wasn't to be! #cafc
