The 166 Charlton Athletic fans who made the long trip to see their team lose 5-0 to Huddersfield will get their money back, Johnnie Jackson told the BBC.
In what was surely the lowest point of the season so far, the Addicks looked absolutely hapless, with Jackson and goalkeeper Stephen Henderson admitting the players take complete responsibility. This result came only days after the club crashed out the FA Cup to League One strugglers Colchester United.
Club captain Jackson took to Twitter to say: “On behalf of the players, I want to apologise. It was disgraceful and you deserve better.” On a similar note Henderson said post-match: “Publicly I’d like to apologise to our travelling fans for that shocking performance.”
Charlton are a club that find themselves in a real mess at the moment, and relegation looks a distinct possibility.
There have been numerous protests held outside home games in recent weeks over how owner Roland Duchatelet is running the club, and results like last night’s will only increase the pressure.
Charlton are currently 23rd in the Championship and things need to change very quickly if they are to get out of this mess.
They are winless in nine games, and boss Fraeye urgently needs to find a solution to their woes if he wants to keep hold of his job.
The Addicks face an incredibly tricky encounter with high-flying Hull City at the KC Stadium on Saturday, and fans of the London club will be desperate to see the club come away with at least a point.
