The Paddy Kenny Show

Paddy Kenny ensured the Addicks could only muster a draw at Elland Road last night, with an outstanding display between the sticks for Leeds United.

The stopper denied Bradley Wright-Phillips on two occasions late on to deny Charton a deserved win. Chris Solly also came close but Kenny, on his 500th appearance in all competitions, was having a blinder.

After a poor home performance against Barnsley a reaction was required and by all accounts there was a marked improvement.

Powell made several changes to the team which included bringing in Dorian Dervite to sit in front of the back four and Cedric Evina was handed a start at left-back (hallelujah). Rob Hulse was the preferred option in the lone striker role with Fuller out injured.

The Addicks went behind thanks to a sweet strike from David Norris. Debutant Dervite grabbed the equaliser managing to find the net through a sea of legs in the box.

It was a well needed point and after the dismal display on Saturday the result can give us some confidence going into the Wolves game at the weekend.

Typically Charlton have saved some of their better performances for the bigger teams this season. I'm hoping we can keep up that trend and cause a bit of an upset at Molineux.

Although I'm only looking for us to survive this season, I would feel a lot more comfortable if we could just edge our way up the table a wee bit.
