Charlton Athletic: Addicks fans have mixed response to club tweet

Charlton Athletic fans have given their responses after being shocked in the Carabao Cup first round by Forest Green Rovers.

The West Country side beat the hosts on penalties after the tie could not be settled within the delegated 90 minutes.

League Two Rovers converted every single spot-kick as they won the shootout 5-3 after Albie Morgan’s penalty hit the post.

Charlton had a chance to win the game when a penalty was awarded for a foul on Naby Sarr in the 68th minute, however, Jake Forster-Caskey’s shot was saved by Rovers keeper Joe Wollacott.

22-year-old Joe Wollacott – on a season’s long loan from Bristol City – had a stunner between the sticks for Forest Green, making a series of saves alongside the penalty save, earning himself the man of the match award at The Valley.

Considering that Charlton – currently sitting at second in the Championship – had just been knocked out by a club who are only in their third ever season in the EFL, there was a surprisingly mixed response from fans. It seems many understand the task at hand in the league and know that the Championship will be the bread and butter this season.

This fan joked: “Our incredible cup record in cup competitions continues and by incredible – I don’t mean good”. Others were more irked, with one fan describing it as “awful”.

Here are some of the best responses to the defeat…
