Hull Hold Addicks

Charlton struggled to make home advantage count against Hull City at The Valley on Saturday narrowly escaping the clash with a point.

Charlton were behind at half time after Man United loanee Frazier Campbell fired the vistors in front. Charlton were able to score an equaliser through Madjid Bougherra but finished the match with ten men after Danny Mills was given his marching orders.

The Addicks started brightly pushing forward constantly in the opening 20 minutes but could not find the opener they needed to grab a foot hold in the game.

Hull were then able to change the run of play going close twice through Campbell but he spurned both of his chances. At the third time of asking though he did not make the same mistakes. Poor defending from the Charlton back line which seems to becoming a regular occurence in the past few matches allowed the ball to bounce off of Chris Powell and into the path of Campbell who lashed home.

Alan Pardew's game plan seemed to be coming undone through out the game. First Sam Sodje went off with a niggle and then at the re-start Llyod Sam could no longer continue and Izale Mcleod replaced him making Pardew revert to a more attacking stance.

The benefits of this were apparant in the 57th minute when Jerome Thomas crossed in a free kick which was not cleared by the Hull defence and Madjid Bougherra was able to turn the ball into the net.

Despite what seemed a Charlton revival they were again set back when Danny Mills recieved a red card for bad language after commiting a foul on Celeb Folan.

The Londoners then had to ride the Hull storm as the Yorkshire side could sense that victory was not beyond them.

Stephen McPhee went close on two occasions but his efforts could not out smart Nicky Weaver.

Good report Jimmy. It's a game that we shouldn't have lost (even if we were lucky at time) and we didn't, which is a bonus but it is also a game that we probably should have won (even if we might not have deserved it.) What I am saying is this is a match that we should have been winning, but at least we've learnt to draw at last!

Haha yeah you seemed quite pleased with this CA! They should have listened to you weeks back! Drawing is surely better than losing? And those late goals - ARGH - hopefully this is the end of that!

I'm starting to worry slightly (only slightly) for the first time this season about our ability to go back up?
