The Valley

Referee:

Oldham were the epitomy of a team that play in their manager's image. Competitive, well organised, good passing and movement with a bit of ugliness thrown into the mix summed up the Latic's efforts at The Valley.

The massive presence of Sunderland's on loan front man, Ourmare Tounkara, gave the Addicks rearguard problems all afternoon.

Tounkara hit the post early on with Elliot well beaten but it was Charlton who took the lead when a Francis cross was helped on and came to the in-form Scott Wagstaff via Lee Martin. Wagstaff thundered a delicious shot into the roof of the net with the outside of his boot midway through the half, for his second goal in a week.

Oldham continued to press and restored parity just before the break. Wagstaff appeared to be harshly penalised and Charlton only half cleared the resultant free-kick. It reached Dean Furman on the edge of the box who lashed a speculative volley past Elliot.

Charlton had the ball in the net just after the restart but Reid was penalised for a push. Then the action switched to the other end where Elliot made a fine save from Tounkara to push the striker's effort onto the woodwork. Tounkara's diminutive strike partner, Djeny Bembo-Leta then fired the rebound goalwards only to see his effort blocked on the line.

The game ended with an unseemly scene on the touchline. Reid was in full cry when Jason Jarrett tackled him. The defender probably thought he was unlucky to be shown a second yellow card - appealed for by the Charlton bench - and his frustration boiled over as he thundered the ball at Phil Parkinson in the Charlton dug out. Parkinson had to be restrained by his staff and a mass confrontation followed.

Jarrett was lucky not to be shown a second red card for the incident but the FA may well ask the player to explain his actions.

Both sides, when they analyse the ame, will probably feel a draw was a fair result.
