The Result Didn't Go Down Well With The Addicks
An improved performance from the Addicks saw them unlucky not to come away with something from yesterday's game. Kelvin Davis needed to be on top form to keep a clean sheet.
Bailey tested the keeper to the full. He had a good game and has clearly benefited from his enforeced rest. Having said that I still have an issue with us seemingly only playing 4-5-1 to accommodate him. Clearly even Parky though it would be harsh to leave out Racon or Semedo. I don't understand the thinking behind playing a striker as short as Forster ina 4-5-1. We needed to be bold and set ourselve up with the best chance. That needed two strikers not one be it in that formation or 3-5-2.
I enjoyed my weekend in Southampton and I was impressed with St Mary's a decent, clean, modern and spacious stadium. The weather helped too !
We've got to go and do the business on Tuesday as we seek to plug away and hope to finish as high as we can even if it's not in second place.
