Addicks collect fourth successive away win

DELIGHTED Charlton manager Alan Pardew praised his players after they moved third in the Championship on Tuesday night.

The Addicks scored a goal in either half to win at lowly Cardiff and record their fourth successive away victory.

Pardew said: "We were very, very disciplined out there - it was a very accomplished performance.

"I thought we looked a very good side - and we need to take that discipline to our home games

"This was a big win for us. I would have preferred to win in front of our home fans at The Valley but you have to take the points when you can."

Charlton, who returned to their tried and trusted 4-5-1 formation, took the lead after 34 minutes when Matt Holland scored after Andy Reid's corner had only been half-cleared.

Skipper Reid rounded off a good evening's work with 11 minutes left when he scored from the penalty spot after Darren Ambrose was felled.

Charlton: Weaver, Mills, Powell, Fortune, Sodje, Ambrose (Semedo 80mins), Holland, Zheng, Reid, Sam (Varney 89mins), Iwelumo (McLeod 88mins). Subs not used: Randolph, Bougherra.

Attendance: 11,874
