Charlton Athletic sent out a real statement to their promotion-chasing rivals, as they beat Plymouth Argyle 6-0 on Tuesday evening.
The Addicks are now sat sixth in the League One table, and are a single point clear of seventh-placed Oxford United heading into their final five matches of this year’s campaign.
Nigel Adkins’ side are now unbeaten in their last ten matches, which has seen them emerge as the in-form team in the third-tier of English football at the ideal time of the 2020/21 season.
Alex Gilbey netted Charlton’s fourth goal on the night, and took to social media to issue his thoughts on the comfortable win over Argyle.
