The Addicks survived the worst possible start to go on and win at Wembley Stadium on Sunday, with Ben Purrington scoring his first goal in Charlton red before Patrick Bauer netted the winner in the dying seconds of injury time.
It didn’t look like being Lee Bowyer’s side’s day after an unforgivable lapse in concentration gave the Black Cats the lead inside five minutes but, from there on out, the SE7 outfit were in control.
It was a resilient performance typical of their excellent campaign and every single player can be extremely proud of what they’ve achieved in 2019, although they might not all be at The Valley next season.
Lionel Messis have been spotted at The Valley, Boundary Park and even in Wales in the video below…
Hero Bauer’s current deal expires this summer and he could be plying his trade elsewhere in 2019/20, with Blackburn Rovers sniffing around earlier in the year. Plenty of Charlton fans took to twitter after the monumental win and they were all saying the same thing to the 26-year-old – you can check out the best of the reaction below…
I hope it wasn't your last touch in a Charlton shirt… but if it was. Thank you bfg
