Wovles Test

Can The Addicks come away from here tomorrow with a point or three.

Life is far from dull in S.E. 7 at the moment. An excellent start to the season was maintained on Tuesday as a youthful Addicks' side emerged victorious from London Road ( I'm not calling it whatever sponsor it has attached to it ).

As Ketts from Doctor Kish pointed out a few records must have been set in not just that match but with Saturday' late, late winner against Hull.

An early goal from Kennedy and a wonder strike from Kashi are the two standout events. Where a number of other Champs and Prem sides either went out of the league cup or made hard work of it, our boys put on a professional and ruthless display.

I was pleased to see Jordan Cousins rewarded with the captain's armband on Tuesday. He leads by example and appears to be very much the team player doing whatever is asked for him and with some aplomb too. Good for him !

Wolves had not had a great start to the season but I'm in agreement with Dave from Drinking During The Game. I believe that the Wolves game will be tough. Kenny Jackett alone will want some sort of a result against us given his connections with Millwall ( remember them ? ). Wolves will want a response especially at home.

It is to he hoped that Henry isn't playing as it means that a good player is absent from their line up and more importantly, raises hopes of his transfer to us completing. Henry is almost the missing link in our squad. Another centre half is, I believe, essential but a winger of his quality really will add something. 

Solly and Watt may be in contention but if there's the slightest doubt over the fitness of either then it seems folly to risk them ahead of an international break. The same should even more be the case with Vetokele. He's struggled to return from his injury problems and a place on the bench should be the limit of his exertions this weekend.

Hopefully our defence can remain tight to give us a good chance. Then it's up to the rest of the side to do their stuff and get us a goal or two. Thankfully out goals have come from a number of different sources and that bodes especially given our current dearth of fit strikers.

I didn't catch the third round draw of the League Cup, I suspect it's another lacklustre tie away to some lower league non-entity. At least it shouldn't distract the lads from the main task on Saturday.

Come On You Reds !
