Match Previews

In Focus: Charlton Athletic

21 August 2017

Norwich City are in second round Carabao Cup action on Tuesday evening when they welcome Sky Bet League One side Charlton Athletic to Carrow Road.

The two sides met last month in a pre-season friendly and City got the better of their opponents on that occasion. Here’s our guide for the visit on the south Londoners.

Summer signings
Charlton boss Karl Robinson has not been able to spend as much as he may have liked in this transfer window, but he’s still managed to bring in six new faces.

In terms of loan deals, promising Chelsea youngster Jay Dasilva decided to re-join the Addicks after a successful spell with the club in the second part of last season.

Former Manchester United goalkeeper Ben Amos has also joined on a season-long loan deal from Bolton Wanderers.

Charlton also made a move for two players from one of their potential promotion rivals – Mark Marshall and Billy Clarke (pictured below) both signed from Bradford City.

Marshall and Clarke played key roles as the Bantams made the Sky Bet League One play-off final last season and Robinson will hope they bring that experience of going so close to promotion into their time at The Valley.

The Addicks have also signed Ben Reeves, on a free transfer from Robinson’s former club MK Dons, and Tarique Fosu-Henry from Reading.

Previous meeting
City and Charlton have met 81 times in club football with the most memorable of recent years being the League One clash back in 2010.

Under Paul Lambert, City had been top of the league for most of the season and needed a victory at The Valley to secure a return to the Championship at the first attempt.

With a team featuring the likes of Michael Spillane, Stephen Hughes and Oli Johnson, City managed to overcome a Charlton side who had play-off hopes of their own, thanks to Michael Nelson’s first half header (pictured below). The Canaries went on to win the league and gain promotion to the Premier League the following season.

Form guide
Charlton have made a positive start to their first full season under Robinson. They kicked off their campaign with a 1-0 victory over Bristol Rovers, despite having Lee Novak sent off.

Then, they made it through to the second round of the cup after a 2-1 win over Exeter City but followed that with defeat away at newly-promoted Plymouth Argyle.

However, after an impressive 4-1 victory over Northampton Town on Saturday, The Addicks will go into the cup match on a high.

Goals from Josh Magennis and Ricky Holmes gave Charlton a two-goal cushion but Northampton pulled one back with ten minutes to play through Marc Richards.

However, two late goals from Jake Forster-Caskey ensured Charlton stayed just inside the play-offs going into the next league fixture.

In the squad
Goalkeepers: Ben Amos, Dillon Phillips
Defenders: Lewis Page, Patrick Bauer, Jason Pearce, Ezri Konsa, Chris Solly, Jay Dasilva, Naby Sarr, Harry Lennon, Aaron Barnes
Midfielders: Ahmed Kashi, Johnnie Jackson, Mark Marshall, Andrew Crofts, Ricky Holmes, Ben Reeves, Tarique Fosu-Henry, Joe Aribo, Karlan Ahearne-Grant, Jake Forster-Caskey, Anfernee Dijksteel
Forwards: Josh Magennis, Billy Clarke, Lee Novak, Brandon Hanlan

Match Reports

City recover to ease past Charlton

22 August 2017

Norwich City recovered from an early setback to safely progress through to the third round of the Carabao Cup, beating Charlton Athletic 4-1 at Carrow Road.

City went behind on five minutes after Lee Novak's strike but responded in emphatic fashion with goals from Josh Murphy (x2), Marley Watkins and debutant Tom Trybull sealing the victory.

Daniel Farke made six changes to the team that started Saturday’s defeat to Aston Villa. Michael McGovern and Alex Tettey made their first starts of the season, with Ivo Pinto returning from injury at right-back. Wes Hoolahan, James Maddison and Watkins were also recalled in a strong City eleven.

Charlton started the brighter of the two sides and managed to grab an early lead when a mistake in the City defence allowed experienced marksman Novak to rifle home past McGovern.

City almost responded moments later when Murphy got to the byline but his low cross was cut out well by Regan Charles-Cook at his near post.

Murphy once again worked an opening on 15 minutes but curled a long range effort just over the crossbar. The wide man was his usual menace on the left in the early stages, giving Charlton right-back Anfernee Dijksteel no end of problems.

But the City winger didn’t have to wait long to get his team back level. On 21 minutes, Pinto whipped a deep cross to the back post and Watkins intelligently nodded the ball down to Murphy who lashed the ball into the bottom corner with an unstoppable volley.

Murphy almost gave City the lead seconds later, firing a powerful shot low to Dillon Phillips’ right but the Charlton stopper produced a smart save.

City were well on top at the half hour mark and forced Phillips into action yet again, this time through Maddison who made the young goalkeeper produce a top save from close-range.

The hosts continued their momentum into second half and it was ever-involved Murphy who handed City the advantage within minutes of the restart. He was perhaps fortunate with a slight ricochet in the box but the ball fell kindly to City’s No11 to smash the ball home from a tight angle.

The second half was quiet for most periods with City happy to sit back and hit their opponents on the break. It was only until the 72nd minute that Charlton had a chance of note when substitute Josh Magennis nodded inches wide after a drilled cross from Jay Dasilva.

However, City punished Charlton for that missed opportunity on the counter attack. Murphy turned provider on this occasion, squaring for Watkins to smash home his first goal for City from close-range.

With the two-goal cushion in place, this allowed Farke to ring the changes. One of those was replacing Hoolahan, who was at is brilliant best on the night, with Trybull who came on for his Norwich City debut.

And just minutes after coming on, Trybull made sure of the points, powerfully volleying a loose ball home past Phillips.

The result sees City safely through to Thursday’s third round draw.
