Carlisle United 0 Charlton Athletic 1
Charlton Athletic secured promotion back to the Championship
with a 1-0 win at Carlisle United on Saturday.
Bradley Wright-Phillips (pictured) fired the only goal of the
game 14 minutes from time and with Sheffield Wednesday being held
at Colchester United, the three points meant the Addicks were
assured of one of the two automatic promotion spots in League
Dany N'Guessan blazed over for the visitors in the first half
but the play-off-chasing hosts threatened to spoil the party -
which culiminated in joyous scenes on the pitch for players and
fans - by hitting the post early in the second half through Liam
Noble, and also went close through on-loan Sunderland man Jordan
At the other end Wright-Phillips had already been denied by
keeper Adam Collin when clean through before the striker prodded
home his 22nd goal of the season after the hosts had failed to
clear a Johnnie Jackson corner.
Brunton Park remains a happy hunting ground for Charlton, who
have won promotion at the ground three times in the past 31
They now need just four points from the final three games of the
season to be crowned champions.
