Like most Addicks fans, I was expecting to be saying post game, something along the lines of,
"Well, the unbeaten run was fun while it lasted but tonight the class of top of the table Norwich City proved too much for our cobbled together bunch of players".
How wrong were we / was I?
Norwich were in command for every one of the 95 minutes played but they just couldn't break down the heroic defending of a Charlton side who worked together to deny them.
As the game entered the final phase, I was hoping with all my heart we'd be able to hang on to the 0-0 draw against tremendous pressure.
Then on 87 minutes, Jackson let fly and Ruddy in the Norwich goal seemed to make a complete hash of it.
ONE - NIL UP!!!
This was more than we had hoped for.
More heroic defending, 5+ minutes of injury time, then some rather bad loser antics from a couple of the Norwich players and Charlton were sneaking off back to SE7 with 3 points in the swag bag.
Whatever happens at the weekend, we are now unbeaten into October.
That's TEN games.
