Holden on Wycombe draw

Holden shouts instructions

Dean Holden felt his side had the better of a 1-1 draw with Wycombe Wanderers at The Valley.

The Addicks led for much of the game after Miles Leaburn’s 16th-minute opener but Chris Forino’s header, in the 82nd minute, was enough for the visitors to secure a point.

Speaking after the game Holden said: “I feel a bit flat, I think we played well today. I think we were the better team. In the first half it took us five or six minutes to get into the game, they made it scrappy and then we got control of the game. For the next 25 to 30 minutes I thought we played well and we score a goal at that point.

“We played around their shape and waited for the opportunity, we got a good switch of play, a two versus one where we knew [Joe] Jacobson would struggle. Albie [Morgan] smashes it across goal, Miles is where you want him to be – inside the posts – and we were in complete control. There is no doubt about that.

“Even in the second half I don’t think there was a lot in it. We’d have liked to have gone on, stepped on and taken one of our chances but their goal comes out of nothing from our point of view.

"We’ve got to improve on set pieces, there is no way of getting around it – we’ve conceded too many this season and for them to come here and get a point through that is disappointing. I’ll go back to our performance though, I think our performance was good.”
