In the last game of the season, Charlton Athletic recorded a smooth victory at home to Swindon Town, scoring three goals.
Charlton took the lead already on 15 minutes when Chelsea loanee Jay Dasilva’s cross was headed home by striker Josh Magennis.
Although Swindon had 55% of ball possession, The Addicks were dominating most of the game and scored their second goal on 43 minutes when Jake Forster-Caskey used an opportunity provided by a Byrne cross.
Johnnie Jackson was then prevented from scoring by Will Henry when the keeper saved his team’s net from the Addicks’ captain.
Charlton’s third goal came on 66 minutes when Ricky Holmes slid a shot past Henry from a Byrne pass to seal the victory.
Charlton finished this season no. 13, in the middle of the league table, with 60 points. In the last five seasons, Charlton played with uneven success. The club’s highest ranking was in season 2012/13 when the club was no. 9 at the league table. However, after last year’s drop down to no. 22, this year’s ranking is a significant success. If Charlton keeps going in this direction, Championship promotion is smiling at the Addicks next season.
