LG PERFORMANCE OF THE WEEK: THE ADDICKS TAKE ALL THREE POINTS AT THE CITY GROUND

The League Managers Association’s panel, comprising LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Chris Hughton, Joe Royle, Dave Bassett and Barry Fry, has determined that the LG Performance of the Week Award should go to Charlton Athletic for their 1-0 victory against Nottingham Forest on Tuesday 11th February 2020.

The experienced and highly distinguished panel has managed a combined total of over 6,500 competitive matches in professional football.

Match Report

A brilliant goal from Lyle Taylor and a fine defensive display from Charlton was enough to see the Addicks take all three points at The City Ground on Tuesday night.

Lee Bowyer's side more than matched their opponents playing some brilliant football both in and out of possession and Naby Sarr’s pinpoint perfect cross was met by Lyle Taylor for what proved to be the winning goal.

The Charlton manager made four changes to the side that played Stoke City at the weekend with Tomer Hemed, Erhun Oztumer, Sarr and Alfie Doughty returning to the starting lineup. There was also a change of shape as the Addicks started in a 3-5-2 formation.
