Supporters vote Ben Amos as Man of the Match at Bradford City

Goalkeeper Ben Amos was named as Charlton supporters’ Man of the Match for his performance in Saturday’s victory away at Bradford City. 

The stopper was in superb form during the match, making three big saves to ensure that the Addicks overcame the third-placed Bantams while also condemning them to only their third defeat in their last 38 home matches. 

He twice denied striker Charlie Wyke – once either side of half-time – and with five minutes remaining he made an incredible one-handed save to keep out a powerful Matt Kilgallon header. 

After the game, Manager Karl Robinson labelled the stop as the best he has ever seen live from a goalkeeper.

Robinson said: “We dug deep and we relied on our ‘cat’ to get us out of trouble. That [the Kilgallon save] is one of the best things I have ever seen live from a goalkeeper; the way he clawed the ball away from behind him. 

“As well as that, how he then did an overhead kick to get it out of play and stop their player from having a tap-in. The save he made in the first half and the save he made just prior to that too was brilliant.”
