moment of madness from Yann.

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.”

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
