Relegation fight continues with important win – #CAFC 3-2 #YTFC

Goals from Ajdarević, Dervite and Sordell fired the Addicks into a commanding position in this relegation six pointer, and despite equalising then scoring later on it was too much for Yeovil to counter

The stress of hanging on at the end to maintain the 3 points was also it seemed too much for Charlton fans, but they celebrated the victory with the players and numerous attempts at 'tunnel jumps' showing just how strong the team spirit at Charlton remains.

Last night also saw South London and relegation rivals Millwall (22nd) manage another win in there recent fightback; in addition to Blackpool, Birmingham and Doncaster being drawn into the mix as the Addicks (21st) closed the gap. This Saturday will see a tough away game to in form Brighton (in 7th place) then strugglers Barnsley (23rd) on Tuesday, followed by Bolton (safe in 14th) on Good Friday in yet more of the fixture overload - which amazingly the Addicks are coping with reasonably well.

Charlton still have 2 games in hand on most clubs near them other than Barnsley (1), and are 2 points off 18th although have worse goal difference than incumbents Birmingham.

Charlton Manager Riga will be pleased that a number of his attacking players have found the net of late, with Reza, Ajdarević, and Sordell all scoring recently. The defence is holding up well enough, and midfield has been enhanced by the quality you know who brings..

Squad wise Wilson was a casualty receiving a fractured cheek bone against Reading, and last night saw Charlton start with 3 centre halves albeit with Morrison at right back. Some match time for Cort later on however, and this no doubt will be pleasing to the Coach particularly if his recovery is successful proving a welcome respite for the defence. Hopefully Wilson will make a swift return to bring back that vital balance across the back four.
