U23s Report: Charlton Athletic A-A Crystal Palace

24 January 2018

The Development side's game away to Charlton Athletic was abandoned after half an hour with Palace leading 1-0.

Having kicked off during a downpour, the game was to last only 32 minutes before the referee took the decision to abandon the game as a result of the pitch becoming unplayable.

A bright start by the Eagles was marked by striker Freddie Ladapo, who smashed home an effort on six minutes after the Addicks failed to deal with a dangerous Jason Lokilo corner.

The number nine's strike was to be the game's only goal before the decision was reached to abandon the afternoon's play at Swallows Lane.
