Luton Town 1 v Charlton Athletic 3

My pre-match hopes of watching this game on ESPN  were cruelly dashed by a Millwall resident of Cyprus who confirmed that you needed a season ticket in terms of annual subscription. Poke that. Instead I wandered around to the Con Club and watched it there with 15 other Desperadoes.

We were poor first-half and they deserved the lead. Unfortunately for them, our only real attack of the half came just before the break and Scott Wagstaff stole in to the near post to head home a fine cross from Simon Francis. It gave us parity after a well-deserved Luton opener and came against the run of play.

The second-half was much better for us and we closed the game out very well with a Joe Anyinsah touch to a free-kick and a deflected free-kick which distorted the scoreline.

Luton can have few complaints on the 90 minutes although Richard Money was less than gracious in his television interview after the game. Parky was word-perfect and he deserved his moment in the sun. Maybe there will be more to come?

If we can do what we should do on Sunday and take the game to Brentford on Tuesday, I believe Phil Parkinson may have finally turned an enormous corner in the minds of the Addick faithful. I will be amongst the first to salute him.
