Charlton Athletic 0 Nottingham Forest 2

25 February 2013

Yann Kermorgant

Charlton manager Chris Powell described striker Yann Kermorgant’s sending-off as a “moment of madness” after 10-man Addicks lost 2-0 at home to Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

Kermorgant, pictured, was dismissed for kicking out at Forest defender Greg Halford off the ball, eight minutes before half-time.

And Addicks boss Powell said: “It was just the red mist – a moment of madness from Yann.

“He does take a lot of knocks and doesn’t always get well protected but I’m not happy with that because I lose a key player for three games now. It was hard enough with 11 versus 11.”

In-form Forest made the extra man count on 51 minutes when Radoslaw Majewski collected a pass from former Charlton player Andy Reid, beat two defenders and goalkeeper Ben Hamer.

Ex-Arsenal midfielder Henri Lansbury made sure of the points for the visitors eight minutes later after Hamer fumbled a Simon Cox shot.

The defeat leaves Charlton 14th in the Championship.
