Although Charlton only won 1-0 at Crawley last night, with the heavy rain favouring the home side, there were plenty of positives to take from the match. The winning goal came from a Green free kick. Green was playing centrally in a 4-3-3.
Kerkar got a late run out and looks promising, those who were there thought he had similar style to Stephens. Cook was lively, his play including a great ball to Haynes in the first half that set him up with the outside of his foot, but Haynes slipped. Haynes worked hard and Hollands supplied good passes.
Taylor, Smith and Wagstaff were less impressive. Taylor was a bit slow at times and Waggy was in his powder puff mode. Smith got a hard time off Claude Davis and poor body language to go with it. His contribution was limited to the odd flick on. Hamer was solid.
