Failure To Convert Costs Charlton

Failure To Convert Costs Charlton

For a second successive Championship game Charlton saw a winning position overturned and ended with them suffering defeat, this time against Crystal Palace.

Chris Powell believes that for the most part of the game his Charlton side showed "the best stuff" they had all season but knows chances must be taken: 'I would say that in the first half and even the first hour, it was some of the best stuff we've played.

'But of course, you need to take your chances when they come and we needed to take more than the one we got because we knew there would be a response from Palace.'

With Palace capable of scoring goals, and Glenn Murray proving this with his double taking him to 25-goals for the season, The Addicks boss was left counting the cost of a failure to take more than the one chance his side did.

The defeat was a "body blow" with Powell adding: 'Obviously, somebody like Murray, who has been scoring goals all season, he eventually got his chances and he took them.

'It's tough to take because it could be quite easy to forget about how well we played in that first 60 minutes.

'It was a proper local derby with chances at both ends. It's just a body blow we didn't come out on top.'
