I knew yesterday's game was going to be problem when earlier in the day my brother said that it was an almost guaranteed three points. I can't blame him saying that. Following a good home win against Bournemouth with two wins on the road, 2-1 over Notts County and 2-0 over Colchester, made a home game with lowly* Scunthorpe seem easy. It wasn't to be of course. A 2-2 draw still leaves Charlton tied on points at the top of the third division with the MK Dons (boo**) and Sheffield United so we mustn't complain, but it will be interesting to see how good this side that Chris Powell has put together is.
*lowly - not really fair as Scunthorpe has only just joined the third division after relegation last season.
**Anyone who is against the Americanization of British sport should boo here as MK Dons were the first English football club to be franchised and made to move towns. Something very un-British.
