Charlton manager Chris Powell pleased to topple record-breaking Huddersfield

Charlton manager Chris Powell was brimming with pride after his side ended Huddersfield’s 43-game unbeaten record with a 2-0 win at the Valley last night.

Goals from Yann Kermorgant and Hogan Ephraim put an end to a run that began on the 1st January with a 2-2 draw away at Carlisle.

Powell was delighted to pick up the win when he spoke to the club’s official website and believes the Addicks will always be remembered for the victory: “For us to be the ones who stopped their record is pleasing and everyone will remember us as the ones who did it. But there are plenty of games still to go. We have done nothing yet.

“It was a good advert for League One. They settled quicker than us but as the game went on we grew in confidence. It was a big occasion. I tried to play it down with the squad but it was a big game for a lot of them and they came through well. But we’ve done nothing yet.”

The result saw the Addicks move seven points clear at the summit of League One but will now have turn their attentions to the FA Cup on Saturday when they host Carlisle.
