Opposition view - Bob Peeters

  • Bob Peeters hails Royston Drenthe performance
  • Addicks gave the ball away and were punished, says Charlton boss
  • Peters feels Charlton could have gone on to win


Charlton boss Bob Peeters feels on another day the Addicks could have claimed all three points but rued his side’s finishing after the interval.

The hosts got back into the game through Igor Vetokele after the Owls had dominated large parts of the opening period and went ahead through Royston Drenthe.



Speaking post-match in The Valley press conference room, Peeters said: “We had high pressure and some chances to break but the quality in the final third was not enough.

“We knew the main problem was Drenthe on our left side and we gave the ball away up front and they broke and scored a superb goal. That can happen.

“At half time I made the change and brought Gudmundsson on which gave us more creativity.

“Normally the plan was only to play Vetokele for 15 minutes, but he played half an hour including injury time and in the second half there was only one team on the pitch.

“We scored to make it 1-1 and then we thought we could go and get a second and that’s the only thing we didn’t do. I was very pleased with the second half.

"We had a lot of chances and a lot of corners and saw a very dominant Charlton. If we keep on playing like we did in the second-half then I’m sure we’ll win a lot of games."
