A goal by Antonio in the 34th minute was enough for Southampton to defeat Charlton at St.Mary's. One prominent Addick commented, 'Thought we were better than usual. Probably would have got something if we had another decent striker apart from Forster. Bailey was unlucky not to score.'
Charlton led the corner count ten to five and had five shots on target to Southampton's four, but the home side had more of the possession, 56 per cent to 44 per cent.
With Huddersfield losing 3-0 at Brentford, the Addicks remain six points clear in
5th place, two points behind Swindon (who lost at Colchester) and three behind Leeds.
