Saturday’s win over Rotherham was probably as unexpected as the one in Jackson’s first game when we played Sunderland away.
Whilst acknowledging that the Millers have been and are on a dreadful run we have been pretty hopeless away this season.
The game was won by a superb strike from Dobson who has more than likely added goal of the season to his Player of the Year accolade. Let’s be honest there’s not much competition for either!
It was a welcome return to the starting eleven for Famewo. I really hope we are able to sign him up in the summer.
For me, he is more than capable and very much what we need if we are to have any success next season. Unlike most of the rest of our defenders he is injury prone.
Tomorrow in our penultimate home game we entertain relegation threatened Morecambe. Despite a mini-revival in recent weeks the outlook isn’t great for Rotherham.
Their final 3 games sees them play Portsmouth, MK and Sunderland. Getting any points from those will be a tough ask.
One to watch tomorrow is Cole Stockton who is enjoying a great season for Rotherham. He’s scored a lot of goals in a poor team and season. There have been some rather spectacular ones in amongst those too.
Whether this season for him is a one off is difficult to know but he’d be worth a punt as a proven goalscorer at this level. He has one year left on the two year contract he signed last summer.
One suspects there will be several clubs chasing his signature and so competition will be intense.
This is another game that ought to see The Addicks victorious but The Millers are fighting for League One survival and so it won’t be easy.
I shall be taking an alternative train journey as trains to Euston aren’t running for the next 4 days due to engineering works. Marvellous!
Come On You Reds!
