Chris Powell's new look Charlton sides were put through their paces again last night in the heat of Lepe in Spain and ran out 2-1 winners over Championship Bristol City. Both sides fielded different elevens in each half.
Our first half side got to the break at 0-0 thanks to some good goalkeeping from Sullivan and the woodwork. Sam Williams should also have beaten David James with a header but missed the target.
In the second-half, we took the lead through Bradley Wright-Phillips who netted from close range and he came close shortly afterwards but it was City who levelled towards the end after a mix-up between Morrison and Sullivan. Not to be deterred, Johnnie Jackson got on the end of Bover-Izquierdo cross to head the winner in the last few minutes.
The question of right-back cover appears to be receiving attention. Second-half triallist, Victor Diaz Miguel put in a good shift and will presumably get another chance on Friday. "Diaz" is a 23 year-old with a 100 league appearances for Sevilla and Oviedo.
