The Perfect Full Moon-ey

David Mooney came off the bench to score a quick brace at the end of this very tight first leg of the League One Playoff Semi Final. Both teams had effectively cancelled each other out in a game that didn't offer too much goalmouth action until Phil Parkinson decided to make a double substitution replacing Therry Racon and Nicky Forster with Kyel Reid and David Mooney.
Reid produced two fine low crosses at the death that Mooney calmly slotted home to give the Addicks a strong advantage going into the second leg on Monday night in front of a packed Valley.

    Not only did Charlton boost their chances of a Wembley finale with a clinical 2-0 victory, but their was euphoria amongst the travelling hordes as South East London's favourite vertically-challenged light entertainer AFKA Bartram scooped £1,000 in Swindon's half-time draw. Sadly AFKA was later evicted from the ground following his continued protests to claim an additional £282 in Gift Aid

    Darren Randolph produced a string of stunning saves to keep Charlton Athletic firmly in the tie heading into Mondays second Leg at the Valley.

    Charlie Austin bragged in Friday's Metro interview that he could power Town to victory over Charlton, but he was left with egg on his face tonight after missing Swindon's best chance of the night and almost immediately conceding a penalty in an eventful end to the game.

    As he had in the first half, Deon Burton scored with aplomb from the spot and gave the Addicks a 2-0 lead to take back to The Valley.

    Charlton Athletic recorded a 9-0 win over Swindon in the first leg of the league one play-offs; which, barring an act of god, must have surly booked their place in the final, facing against Huddersfield or Millwall. The result has seen them become the bookies favourite to win promotion. Which if charlton manage to do it would incidentally see them enter the record books for being the first club to win promotion at both the wembleys.
    In describing the match, pundit Ruud Gullit was quoted as saying "now that was sexy football!" And another pundit, Admiral Ackbar, said that Swindon's defence were just unable to repel firepower of that magnitude.
    Deon Burton scored a delightful hattrick, Bailey bagged himself a brace; Mooney, Sam and both the Sodjes also got their names on the scoresheet in the, what only could be described as a romp.
