Charlton went down 2-1 at Bournemouth in their first league match of the season. Two goals from Lewis Grabban gave newly-promoted Bournemouth the win. The hosts took the lead when Grabban headed in from Harry Arter's cross.
But Charlton equalised through Yann Kermorgant's acrobatic volley. However, Grabban spun a marker and shot in from 25 yards to make it 2-1 before Charlton ended with 10 men following Bradley Pritchard's dismissal. Those who were there question whether it was a red card, but I predicted that d'Urso would send someone off for making a tackle.
The absence of Johnnie Jackson through injury didn't help us.
