Interim Manager Jason Pearce was pleased with the character the Addicks showed on Saturday to secure a come-from-behind win against Fleetwood Town in SE7.
“We said to the boys ‘just keep believing in what we’re doing, it’s coming’," he told CharltonTV post-match. Obviously shooting towards the Covered End, we knew the fans were behind us.
“We had a little pop at the players at half-time. They agreed with us and then went out and performed very well in the second half.
“I’d like to dedicate this win, as a staff and as players, to a man called Dan, who is terminally ill. His girl Rose was a mascot today. Dobbo made a speech before the game, which was tough to listen to, and we just want to send them our best wishes.”
When Charlton did turn it around, they had two of their summer signings to thank as Chem Campbell teed up Alfie May.
“With Alfie, since I’ve come in, he keeps getting in the right place at the right times,” he explained. “Eventually our goal was going to come and he’s a natural goalscorer. As long as we provide him with the service he’ll get goals for the club.
“I thought Chem did really well today. You can see that he can manage the ball against bigger players, he can go past people and I think it’s going to be exciting to see him progress.”
The Addicks are next in action at The Valley on Saturday, September 23rd when Wycombe Wanderers visit. Click here to purchase your tickets.
