A theme is emerging.........
On Saturday we played the Hatters and on Tuesday we are away again this time to the Iron. At home next Saturday we play Coventry and although it's no Detroit, it is closely associated with cars ( especially Willie Carr ! ).
Clearly we're in the midst of a set of fixtures inspired by Waddington's famous game of Monopoly and its tokens ( I mean the original ones not the more modern ones which are a nonsense - change isn't good !! ).
Portsmouth must be up soon maybe followed by Northampton and Blackburn ( Rovers ) in the cup. If we get Millwall, you'll know we've moved on to Cluedo tokens !
I always felt that Saturday's game against Luton was going to be a tough one and in view of the way events panned out, like just about everyone else I was more than happy with the point.
Chris Solly chose a good time to renew scoring. They do seem to be worth waiting for don't they ?
Bowyer was right not to risk Ward and Grant by not having them in the starting eleven with tomorrow's night's game in mind.
Whether Fosu would have replaced one of the midfielders who played so well against Plymouth
is unclear. I guess Ward's injury solved that problem.
We did dominate for long periods against the Hatters albeit not as much as the Plymouth game. We do need to score more when we are on top.
Following the game from afar was a nervy affair. If we can go two or three goals up it would help with the nerves.
The Iron will pose difficult opponents. After a dire start to the season manager Nick Daws was sacked and replaced by Stuart McCall.
McCall has overseen a real upturn. Accepting that their have been many draws the team remains unbeaten under McCall.
The Addicks do have a record of ending unbeaten runs and they'll need to be at their very best if they are to repeat that tomorrow.
Former Addick Lee Novak is amongst the ranks of Iron players. I don't think we saw the best of him when he was with us and I hope that doesn't start tomorrow !
