POST-MATCH THREAD: Cheltenham Town vs Charlton Athletic: Tuesday 5th March 2024 KO 19:45

It took ten or twelve minutes to settle the game down before Charlton went on to dominate the first half, going ahead on 19 minutes through a lovely bit of team play that put Daniel Kanu in position to slide the ball past the keeper from six yards. Unfortunately, despite shot after shot peppering the Cheltenham goal, the Addicks failed to extend their lead.

In the second half, Charlton absorbed a lot of pressure as Cheltenham fought their way back into contention. The Addicks were flat in comparison to earlier in the match as Cheltenham wrestled momentum back to their side. The Cheltenham equaliser came on 70 minutes as they waltzed through the Charlton back line and stabbed homem from close range.

Substitutions were made on 79 minutes, which proved pivotal, with Tyreeq Backinson coming on for the out-of-sorts Karoy Anderson. Backinson put the Addicks back in front on 86 minutes, finding himself on the end of a George Dobson cross, which he controlled and fired home from within the box. Only four minutes later the seemingly inevitable happened, with Alfie May scoring a tap in through Thierry Small’s selfless pass. The ball was gifted to Small through a slip up by the Cheltenham right back, which let Small through on goal with only the keeper to beat. Small put May in, which was a just reward for his industriousness. The third goal ensure the three points, with the Addicks moving up to 14th in the table.

3 more points!

Cheltenham 1 Charlton 3

    Great result - should have sewn it up by half time. Still think we look a bit iffy at the back ! Coventry and Watson were very good and so much better than a few weeks back. Well done to all

    Results based business. 

    We won and looks like we'll be back in this division next year. 

    The way we struggled for large parts of the second half worries me when planning for next season.

    Shaky and scrappy, but it's 3 points and confidence and resilience are improving.  Anderson was tired and struggling, needed to come off at half time.  Small excellent again.  Need REG to be fit, quality player now he has settled in
