Charlton supporters coach window gets smashed in post-match trouble after Cambridge game

A window of the Charlton supporters coach gets smashed in post-match trouble after the game with Cambridge on Saturday afternoon.

Photos emerged on social media under an hour after the League One fixture had finished, with it playing out to a 1-1 draw.

Tim Morton (@Timmorton5) wrote in his post: “Charlton supporters coach. Window smashed by your scummy fans. Cowards.”

@Thecharltonchan said: This is a picture of One of the Charlton coaches (Coach Number one) whilst me and my dad were sitting on the coach (there were some other people already on there with us but we were all waiting for the rest to come on, it was full time by the way).

“A group of Young Cambridge fans decided to throw a brick at the coach window causing it to smash, luckily though no one was harmed on hurt during the time brick was thrown at the coach, coming out of football should be safe and calm and not violent.”

@Cafc1507 tweeted: “@CambridgeUtdFC sort your scummy fans out! Someone could’ve been sat here fucking pricks.”

The game itself saw Cambridge secure a hard-fought 1-1 draw against Charlton, extending their lead over the bottom four.

The visitors went ahead in the 23rd minute after Connor Wickham converted George Dobson’s pass with a low shot past Will Mannion.

However, Cambridge levelled in the 50th minute through Macauley Bonne, who netted his first goal for the U’s against his former club.

Charlton missed a golden opportunity to take the lead late in the game, but Alfie May’s shot struck the post, leaving the match level.

Charlton boss said: “We’ve got to keep a clean sheet. We’ve led at Fleetwood – comfortable. We’ve led at Northampton – comfortable. We’ve lead here today – relatively comfortable apart from the wind. Yet we’ve dropped two points.

“We could be the highest points takers in the league in the last 13, 14 games but something keeps happening. When we don’t score chances at the other end and put the game to bed, then that’s what happens.”

“It’s a poor goal [to concede]. He shouldn’t score from there with that type of shot. There’s no doubt in my mind about that.”

“The positives are it’s another point, undefeated, away from home, very difficult conditions – the wind is swirling, the pitch is rustic at best. And we created enough chances to have won the game. So those are the positives,” he said.

He stressed how difficult it can be to play on a surface like the one at the Abbey Stadium.

“The pitch didn’t allow too much good, fluent football,” he explained. “We went to Fleetwood the other day and it was just brutal. Today was brutal. The pitch is dry, they probably haven’t watered it in eight, ten years.”

Charlton are now mathematically safe from relegation, but Jones wants to looking up the table, not down.

“That was the goal, but I never had any doubt in my mind that we wouldn’t [be safe], with the squad and how we work and how we do stuff,” he said.

“What I would really like us to do is really get some momentum pushing into next season.”

Cambridge head coach Garry Monk said, per Cambridge Independent: “In the first half at both ends of the pitch we were losing those battles so we spoke about that half-time.

“But in the second half I felt we came out on top in terms of winning those battles, the individual battles and the second-ball battles.

“The biggest compliment I can pay them (the players) is if you go back four or five weeks ago, a goal like that in the first half, maybe we’d have suffered mentally and not come back from it.

“You can see the difference in them mentality, especially in the games in the last few weeks. The mentality is there to fight and the determination is there.

“Overall I know we always want the three points but I think it was a fair result.”

@Cmchunk62: Unfortunately it is usually just a small percentage of ‘fans’. It’s also that small percentage that give clubs a bad name that isn’t always warranted

@mattylamps: Get bit excited those Cambridge fans on a big day out.
