Three wins, three clean sheets. That's the record of Chris Powell as Charlton manager after the Addicks beat Yeovil 1-0 at Huish Park. Bradley Wright-Phillips did what he was paid for by scoring the winner on 64 minutes.
The first half was a rather dull affair with the Addicks battling against the strong wind. The only Addicks action of any consequence came with a Johnnie Jackson free kick that was tipped over.
In the second half Charlton's play improved. Francis fed Anyinsah who kept his balance well, Bradley Wright-Phillips had to stay onside but then he put the ball wide.
A Charlton counter attack led to a corner which was very well taken by Jackson. Wright-Phillips put in a good header to score.
Matt Fry nearly scored an own goal with an attempted clearance, but then on form Elliot somehow managed to stop the ball going in the net. Dailly appeared to handle the ball in the area, but the referee saw nothing. Local fans called for a second yellow for Doherty after an innocuous challenge.
Six minutes were added on, but Elliot was in calm command of his area, dealing with a free kick well and then punching the ball out through a ruck of players.
Charlton go 5th, there are four teams from 4th to 7th on 44 points, although Southampton could pull away from the pack if they win in the late kick off at Peterborough.
