Holt halts away perfection

The Addicks' 100 per cent record on the road has finally been sabotaged thanks to Grant Holt's dubious stoppage-time equaliser at Norwich. The burly striker appeared to foul Rob Elliot as he knocked Chris Martin's (no not him out of Coldplay) cross into the net, which just added to the frustration of letting a two-goal lead slip.

Being realisic, however, gaining a point from the tricky trip to Carrow Road could be a very valuable one come the business end of the season and there will be far easier treks for the Addicks to make over the course of the campaign.

Relinquishing winning positions is never nice though and hopefully our players will realise that for all their quality (some of which is too good for this division), momentary lapses could cost us very dearly.

On the bright side, deadly Deon continued his excellent form with another goal and, according to Parky, an excellent all-round display, while Jonjo Shelvey also netted, and looks as though he is starting to fire after a few tired performances at the start of the term.

Oh yes and congratulatiuons to Chris Dickson, who went to Bristol Rovers and did exactly what most Addicks fans expected him to do.
