HEAD-TO-HEAD: CHARLTON

29 August 2014



Brighton & Hove Albion and Charlton Athletic have faced each other 55 times over the years so the clubs know each other well.
 
The records show it is a usually a close encounter and Albion just edge it in terms of overall victories.

The Seagulls have 23 wins, Charlton have 21 while there have been 11 draws between the sides.
 
The most recent encounter between the teams came in April when Albion ran out 3-0 winners at the Amex during their push for the play-offs. Jesse Lingard, Leo Ulloa and Jake Forster-Caskey were all on target on the day.



Memorable matches

Unbeaten Athletic arrived at the Goldstone full of confidence and half expecting victory.

Albion, however, had other ideas and a brilliant display put an abrupt end to the Addicks' winning-streak.

Jimmy Case stole the show with a hat-trick in an emphatic 7-0 victory; Gerry Ryan scored a brace while Gordon Smith and man of the match Terry Connor scored one apiece for Jimmy Melia’s side.

Albion lost a thrilling game at the Goldstone, in a season where the Addicks went on to secure promotion after finishing as runners-up.

Captain on the day, Dean Saunders, scored from the penalty spot while Danny Wilson and a young Martin Keown were also on target for the Seagulls.

League One
Albion 1 Charlton 1


Brighton extended their lead at the top of League One to four points after a battling draw.

The Seagulls couldn’t have made a worse start as Johnnie Jackson fired Charlton in front from the penalty spot after three minutes.

Things went from bad to worse four minutes later when Inigo Calderon was shown a straight red card following a tackle on Therry Racon.

Albion hit back to equalise nine minutes before the interval through striker Glenn Murray, who expertly hooked home Adam El-Abd's ball.

It was a gutsy performance in a memorable season that ended with the League One title.
