Hull City 1 Charlton 2

"Mugged in his own backyard" was how Hull manager Phil Brown saw last nights result but the sportinglife was more impressed by Charlton's "real professionalism" and added that "it bodes well in their efforts to make an instant return to the Premier League."
Brown, still upset after the game moaned about "There's been an injustice served in more ways than one and without getting myself into trouble, we didn't deserve to lose the game."
Much the same was trotted out on Saturday after the draw with Coventry but Pards wouldn't be losing any sleep over what the opposing side have to say and seemed perplexed by it all and in turn added "I've got a bit of a problem with it, Ashbee made a late tackle, kicked him twice and grabbed him round the throat." So we're appealing..
The guardians also seen prettier nights and although the figures in the Sporting Life give Hull more pressure with 7-4 the score of shots on target and a corner count of 8-0, there's also the foul tally of 22 to 13 that probably explains Pardews later comments "They tried to knock us out of our stride and they did that to some degree. We've now had two tough away trips and did look a bit tired. But technically, there's no doubt about us being good enough."
Meanwhile, West Brom play tonight, keen to regain 2nd spot, with a far from easy home fixture against Stoke and looking forward to the weekend both rivals have away games with Watford up at Scunthorpe - 3 wins and only 1 defeat at home - while West Brom have the easier job at Southampton, who not content with having the worst home record in the Division with most goals conceded have now the worst away record as well after losing 5-1 yesterday at Preston.
The Addicks: Weaver; Mills, Fortune, Bougherra, Powell; Sam, Semedo (McLeod 90), Zheng (Sodje 90), Reid; Iwelumo, Varney (Thomas 90).
Subs (not used): Randolph, Todorov.
Goals: Varney 40, Iwelumo 88.
Bookings: Bougherra 33 (foul on Hughes).
