Saturday afternoon delivered a hard-fought Charlton display as The Addicks swept aside relegation rivals Luton Town 3-1 in an exciting performance by Lee Bowyer’s red army.

Luton started the game on the front foot, their attacking prowess just looked a lot more dangerous than Charlton early on, but the mighty reds battled valiantly in their defensive efforts.

Sarr managed to hit the bar around the 13th minute which lightened up the mood around The Valley, exactly what was needed as the opening minutes were not exactly what the faithful was hoping for.

The noise kept getting louder as the game went on.

As a fan myself I was getting rather worried about how the match was playing out until Sarr hit the bar.

Something sparked in my mood and I felt a lot more confident when The Addicks pushed forward and finally by the 33rd minute we had our goal.

Lyle Taylor produced some of the greatest bit of skill I have ever seen down at The Valley for the opener.

Fliking it on from behind he sent the ball in front of him as he took another smart touch before firing his tenth of the season into the bottom left corner. Worth another look on youtube!

Unfortunately, that lead lasted just two minutes as Harry Cornick smashed in an equalizer for Luton which sent the home end quiet until Charlton started battling back.

The second half started and Charlton came out the stronger side.

Luton however knew they needed all three points and they scored on the five minutes after the break. Fortunately for us it was (wrongly) disallowed for offside which quickly put the smiles back on Addicks faces.

On the 55th minute, George Lapslie replaced Deji Oshlaja and what an impact he made.

Lappo was strong and confident in his displayand even earned Charlton a penalty as he struck the ball against James Collins’ arm.

Lyle Taylor obviously sent The Valley rocking from the spot.

George wasn't done yet and neither was this game.

Macauley Bonne also came on as he replaced Oztumer which pulled Taylor back to the number ten role so Lyle wouldn’t have to run as much.

Bonne put in a god shift and assisted George Lapslie for his first Charlton goal and he was ecstatic with how the movement turned out when he smashed the ball into the back of the net, Lapslie celebrated by putting the ball in his shirt to represent his partner who is currently pregnant.

It was another great day in SE7 and a huge bounce back from last weeks loss against Blackburn Rovers, we now sit five points above the relegation zone and nine points above the visitors.

Looks like this relegation battle is in our hands!
