Charlton Athletic continued their strong start to life under Nigel Adkins on Saturday afternoon, as they beat Sunderland 2-1 at The Stadium of Light.

That result means the Addicks are now unbeaten in their last eight games, and have taken seven points from three matches since the appointment of Adkins at The Valley, moving them to within a point of the play-off places.

After a Josh Scowen own goal had put Charlton in front at half time, Alex Gilbey doubled the hosts advantage after the break, and although Scowen himself pulled one back for Sunderland, the Addicks hung on to claim all three points.

That was in no small part thanks to the performance of goalkeeper Ben Amos, who produced a string of outstanding saves throughout the course of the 90 minutes, to help keep a Sunderland attack that has been so potent in recent times at bay, and on his birthday no less.

Indeed, that contribution from Amos is one that did not go unnoticed, with a number of Charlton fans keen to pay tribute to the shotstopper for his contribution to that win, as they took to Twitter to give their thoughts on the game.

Here, we take a look at what some of those Addicks supporters had to say about the 31-year-old’s latest performance.
