With hundreds of matches played every week around the globe, the unibet bonus code 2018 will come in handy to many gamblers out there. But if you placed your bid on Charlton Athletic F. C. on Saturday, December 16th, odds were not in your favor as the team lost at the hands of Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park.
Although the Addicks were arguably the much better side, the London-based team suffered a 2-0 defeat and the final score certainly did not accurately show the balance of play.
Charlton Athletic got the first blow of the afternoon during the first half, after Clarke was forced off with an injury and Leon Best replaced him from the bench, making a nightmare return, as he diverted a free-kick past Ben Amos an into his own net, thus allowing the Rovers to take the lead.
After the unexpected own-goal, the visitors clearly dominated possession in the second-period and even came close to scoring several times, but their shots were saved by the keeper.
The second goal of the match was scored by Rovers’ Danny Graham in added time at the end of the game, securing the points for the hosts.
Even Karl Robinson, the manager of League One club Charlton Athletic, said his team did not have a bad performance. “I thought we were the better team today,” he explained. “We know that results haven’t been as they should be but we feel that we deserve more than what we’re getting. We’re going to need the support and ourselves to work hard.”
Fans of the club should know that the team went into the game without Ahmed Kashi, Patrick Bauer and top scorer, Tariqe Fosu, who were all benched due to injuries. But even so, the Londoners managed to dominate the game. Too bad that the scoreline didn’t reflect that.
With the January transfer window rapidly approaching, Addicks’ chief Karl Robinson wants to make new signings early on, admitting that he wants two strikers and to also cover for two other areas.
Despite the recent losses, Robinson is convinced that once we get to January and the team gets some of its players back, their performance and results will improve.
Looking forward, the south-east London team will face Blackpool, Southend, Wigan and Gillingham in this next period and they have some tough games ahead considering the number of injured players. We can only wish them luck and support them through this difficult period.
