Charlton Athletic midfielder Alex Gilby suffered a disappointing Tuesday night, despite Adix’s decisive victory in the Premier League.
Knowing that nothing less than a win against Lincoln City would put an end to Charlton’s hopes of securing a top six at the end of the season, Nigel Adkins’ side became an extremely impressive display in a 3-1 win over the Imps, with goals from Jayden Stockley, Ryan Inniss and Chuks Aneke, who ensure that south-east London will stay there with shouts to raise a place for the playoffs on Saturday.
The victory means that the Adix are now just one point behind Portsmouth in sixth place and tied for points with Oxford United in seventh, which means that Charlton will have to improve on Pompey’s score against Accrington Stanley and Oxford against Burton Albion. when Adkins table tennis on Hull City sides to secure their place in the League 1 playoffs.
However, one player who will undoubtedly hope for a better performance on Saturday than on Tuesday will be Alex Gilby, as, despite his country’s victory, the 26-year-old has become a disappointing display with his rating of match of 6.3 on SofaScore, ranking him as the worst player of the club at night.
This low ranking will probably be due to a number of factors, including his careless passing – performing only 20 of his 30 attempts to pass, with an accuracy rate of 67% ranking him as the second worst passer of Adix in the match – his six fouls – doubles the number of fouls committed by Charlton’s next tallest player – and the fact that he has lost possession of the ball in 15 separate cases.
Charlton may have won the victory they needed, but Gilby’s individual performance disappointed his manager and he will have to be much better next week.
Should Gilby reserve his place for Hull?
As such, with so many bets in the game against Hull on Saturday, £ 5,500 a week will certainly have to increase their game if Adix has any chance of securing a result against the Tigers. If he doesn’t, the midfielder could cost his side a promotion shot.
