Crystal Palace 2 Charlton Athletic 1

04 February 2013

Ricardo Fuller

Charlton were beaten by a late Glenn Murray double in a 2-1 derby defeat at Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The Addicks led through Ricardo Fuller’s strike after 15 minutes and played some of their best football of the season for an hour.

Fuller, pictured, Bradley Pritchard and Johnnie Jackson were denied by Julian Speroni while Leon Cort headed over as the visitors threatened to extend their lead.

But promotion-chasing Palace equalised on 75 minutes when Murray collected a Dean Moxey pass and beat Ben Hamer and he struck the winner four minutes later.

The defeat leaves Charlton 14th in the Championship and boss Chris Powell said: “It’s tough to take because it’s easy to forget about how well we played in that first 60 minutes.

“It was a proper local derby with chances at both ends and it’s just a body blow for us.”
