Scott Wagstaff worked his way through the ranks at Charlton after joining the club’s academy and he bagged his first senior Addicks goal in a 2-0 victory over Walsall with a precise finish. The youngster made over 120 appearances for the club, before moving on to Bristol City in 2013.
Legendary Charlton midfielder Mark Kinsella scored a brace in the Addicks’ 4-2 victory in March 2000, which would help secure his side’s promotion to the Premier League. His second of the two was the more memorable goal, as he placed an excellent volley into the bottom corner of the net, before peeling away to celebrate in front of the away end full of delirious Addick’s fans. Liam Kinsella, Mark’s son, is now at Walsall.
Dany N'Guessan popped up with the decisive goal in Charlton’s 1-0 victory over Walsall in April 2012, edging the Addicks ever closer to promotion to the Championship. Though not being the prettiest goal on the eye, N’Guessan’s header sent The Valley into ecstasy, leaving the club needing to win at Carlisle the following week to achieve promotion to the second tier.
Former Charlton favourite Andy Hunt scored in a 2-1 victory over the Saddlers back in November 1999. With the Addicks trailing 1-0, the ball fell to the striker on the edge of the six-yard box and he found the net with a sensational overhead kick to level the tie. Late on in the second half, Charlton went on to win the game with another great goal, with Graham Stewart powering the ball into the top corner of the net from the edge of the area.
In the reverse fixture earlier this season, a late piece of magic looked to have earned Charlton all three points when Ricky Holmes volleyed home from the edge of the box. Unfortunately, the Saddlers would level the scores to take a point but it was Holmes’ moment of quality that had everyone talking.
