Important win at Forest

A 1-0 win at Nottingham Forest this evening moved Charlton three points clear of the three teams on 32 points, Millwall propping up the table after their 2-3 defeat at home to Birmingham. Charlton's winning goal came ten minutes from the end when Jordan Cousins slotted home after Jonathan Obika's effort had come off the post.

Charlton, with Jose Riga in charge for only the fifth time, attacked only sporadically, but they did give Forest a scare when Astrit Ajdarevic broke down the left and squared the ball towards Marvin Sordell, who had to stretch to deliver a shot, but still managed to hit the foot of Karl Darlow’s left-hand post.

In the first half Astrit Ajdarevic had a couple of efforts early on for Charlton, but both shots were unable to find the target before Reza Ghoochanneijhad saw an attempt of his own blocked by the Forest defence.

Apparently there was some aggravation between Astrit and Lawrie Wilson at the end of the match and they had to be pulled apart, no idea what that was about.

i think that you are being a bit hard on us, Wyn. We thoroughly deserved to get something out of this match. After 70 minutes, I'd have settled for a draw but BBC and Sky both agree with me on the justice of the final outcome. 2 wins and 2 draws out of the first five matches with 4 clean sheets is an incredible success rate for Riga. Mind you, CP might have done just as well. We will never know.
