Charlton grab late winner

Charlton grab late winner - 18 Sep 2015 - Women's Football NewsTottenham Hotspur 1 Charlton Athletic 2
Charlton Athletic recorded their third FAWPL win in a row to go third in the Southern Division with a late Jenny Newman winner against Tottenham Hotspur. 
 
However, they were pushed hard by a vibrant Spurs second half display which saw the North Londoners go close on several occasions. A combination of wayward finishing and good goalkeeping from Megen Lynch frustrated the hosts and it was a superb counter which saw sub Newman clear on the left for a neat finish on 86 minutes.
 
Spurs took the lead with a good finish from Bianca Baptiste, who lofted a through ball wide of the advancing keeper on 11 minutes. Gemma Shepherd nearly levelled with a lob after a good pass from Stef Simmons on 19 minutes but the equaliser came a minute later when the same player took advantage of a poor back pass to force the ball past Toni-Anne Wayne.
 
Avilla Bergin and Jenna Schillaci both threatened the Charlton goal late in the half whilst Kit Graham and Shepherd were dangerous for the visitors but the score remained level at the break.
 
Spurs forced two early corners on the resumption but it took a fine reaction save from Waine to deny Graham on 54 minutes. The same player volleyed over after good work by Shepherd on the right but Spurs looked increasingly threatening as the match entered the final quarter. Bergin had a goal disallowed after forcing in a rebound from a Lynch save.
 
Waine saved well from Nikita Whinett but was powerless to stop Newman after a slick four player move left the Charlton sub in space fifteen yards from goal. Even then, the visitors were grateful for an excellent Lynch save from Spurs sub Rosie Kmita, tipping over a lob at full stretch. The same player had a great chance to equalise after getting free on the left but steered her shot wide of goal.
 
With Spurs pushing on, Charlton nearly added to their lead deep in added time but another goal would have been even more harsh on a spirited Spurs. Charlton had shown the resilience to take the points and keep up their pursuit of leaders Brighton and Hove Albion.
