A training ground free kick on Saturday saw young Callum score his first senior goal for the Addicks. All credit to him. He merited another start after his second half display against Peterborough. His ball to set up Jackson for the first goal was sublime aside from all the other good things he did on the night.
Button's clean sheet on Saturday is most welcome especially as it seemed he could have done better with Posh's second goal. Button has deserved his chance and on Tuesday night I was impressed with his punching and catching. If he's coming for it, he's coming for it ! His distribution is also good. I don't think anyone's writing Hamer off, however, it's good to have some healthy competition amongst our keepers.
The four points from the away days at Peterborough and Huddersfield are most welcome if not essential. It will hopefully settle us down and renew the players collective confidence.
Yesterday's cup draw for that lot down the road is excellent news meaning as it does that they replay on Wednesday night. Here's to extra time, sendings off etc. If we can add in some delays on the motorway for their return journey, then all the better.
Another 3 points from Saturday's game will naturally be good for almost every reason. Sadly I'll not be there as I'm moving house next week ( an experience I don't recommend. The whole episode, from start to finish, has been a pain to put it mildly. I may need to go into more detail soon !! ) and I need every moment to complete the move of possessions into storage as I don't enter the new place until a couple of weeks after.
Yann is back available on Saturday and it seems entirely fitting that he should be. If he seeks atonement for his red card last time out at home then helping to put one over on them will do just fine !
