Winning does matter

That's what Bristol City boss Keith Millen told his players before they met Charlton in Spain last night, but in the event it was the Addicks that were 2-1 victors and they evidently did quite well if one reads a report from a City perspective: Bristol

As at Welling, Chris Powell made wholesale changes at half time and it was the stronger second half side that made the greater impact with Bradley Wright-Phillips scoring 20 minutes into the half after Ruben Bover-Izquierdo had set the striker up for a simple tap in. City keeper Dean Gerken had to pull off two outstanding saves to deny the dangerous Wright-Phillips.

Bristol City equalised on 74 minutes through Rob Stead, but Johnnie Jackson scored the winner with a last minute header, 'Bovver' again providing the assist.

Charlton play Cardiff City on Friday evening.
