Charlton Athletic 0 Millwall 2
Charlton boss Chris Powell said he was embarrassed by his side’s
home form after a 2-0 derby defeat by Millwall on Saturday.
Second-half goals from Jermaine Easter and Shane Lowry condemned
the Addicks to their third straight loss – and ninth in total – at
The Valley and left them 15th in the Championship.
Powell said: “I’m just baffled by our home form. It’s not as if
anything is being transmitted down from the supporters.
“They have been brilliant and were right up for it again and we
just haven’t given it to them. I’m embarrassed and mystified by
Bradley Pritchard fired over an early chance and saw a strike
held by Lions keeper David Forde at the second attempt in a first
half of few chances.
Substitute Easter latched on to a Richard Chaplow through ball
to give Millwall the lead on 57 minutes.
The visitors clinched the points seven minutes later with a
superb 35-yard free-kick from Lowry.
