Charlton Athletic continued their recent turnaround by holding in-form Rotherham United to a 1-1 draw at the Valley last night and many Addicks fans have been raving about the performance of Alex Gilbey.
The Millers had won seven of their last eight games and scored 13 goals in their last three matches heading into Tuesday night’s League One clash, meaning it looked a tough one for the home side.
But Charlton have looked reborn since Nigel Adkins was replaced by caretaker boss Johnnie Jackson and impressed again last night against Rotherham.
Paul Warne’s side took the lead through Mickel Miller in first-half injury time but Conor Washington grabbed an equaliser seven minutes before the end to ensure the points were shared.
Have each of these 24 ex-Charlton Athletic academy players ever played in the Premier League?
Gilbey started in midfield once again for the Addicks and produced a strong display, with his hard work out of possession catching the eye, before sending a message to fans after the game.
Fans were unbelievable tonight 👏👏 Good point against a top side 👍 pic.twitter.com/7aFHYe7Ott

Captain material for me…. Ran yourself into the ground and never stopped wanting the ball. You should have been put through at the end.
