Second away win of season for Addicks

Charlton secured their second away win of the season with a 3-2 victory at troubled Southampton today. Jonjo Shelvey opened the scoring on 7 minutes when he ran on to a long ball. Saints equalised 10 minutes later and then on 26 minutes Kandol saw a Charlton penalty saved. The score remained at 1-1 at half time.

Racon put the Addicks ahead from the edge of the area on 60 minutes. His right footed shot flew into the top corner of the net from 20 yards out, reminding us why we would like to retain his services next season if at all possible.

Nicky Bailey then made it 3-1 on 69 minutes from six yards out. Wright-Phillips pulled one back for Saints on 84 minutes making for a tense finish which saw Elliot in the Charlton goal booked in time added on.

Saints led in terms of goal attempts, shots on target and corners, but it is the result that counts and it will give a boost to the morale of the Addicks.
