Seven will be heaven for Charlton

Charlton boss Chris Powell

Charlton boss Chris Powell

First published in Albion by

Charlton boss Chris Powell his backed plans by his club’s supporters to applaud in the seventh minute today.

The gesture will mark the minute in which Colin Walsh netted with a crisp low drive in their homecoming game against Portsmouth 20 years ago.

Powell likes the idea but joked: “I hope Brighton don’t score in the seventh minute!”

Albion will have their work cut out if they are to score against Powell’s well-drilled outfit.

That is the view of the man who knows both clubs so well.

Steve Gritt is now out of work having been let go as chief scout at Bournemouth. That has allowed him to see plenty of matches, primarily at Charlton.

He said: “They seem to be coming to terms with the league now.

“They lost 4-1 to Middlesbrough and looked out of sorts.

“Chris and (assistant) Alex Dyer have turned them around. They have tightened up defensively, starting after the 5-4 win against Cardiff. Chris will be confident of getting some sort of result today.”

I have just taken a look at the Charlton web site, I clicked on the player stats option and it makes for some weird reading.

According tot he site three players, Jackson, Hulse and Fuller, have had a total of 70 shots, 37 of those were on target and 33 hit the woodwork, REALLY?

Their stats suggests that not one shot was off target and how can three players hit the woodwork so often this season?

Maybe they need to invest in some glasses for their stat recorders.
