Charlton Athletic boss Dean Holden on not making any substitute changes against Wycombe Wanderers

Dean Holden has explained why he did not make any substitutions in Charlton’s 1-1 draw against Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday.

The Addicks boss kept faith with his starting 11 for the entire League One fixture.

It meant no action for the likes of Macauley Bonne, Daniel Kanu, Gavin Kilkenny, Aaron Henry and Zach Mitchell.

“I’m looking at the team and I’m thinking Miles (Leaburn) looks fine,” said Holden. “Physically he looked fine and was always a threat to them.

“We could’ve changed up midfield. Maybe at one point, Albie Morgan went to a yellow card when we were 1-0 up and we were looking to change that one – because with 10 or 15 minutes to go we’d had three or four yellow cards. Albie, in that midfield, we didn’t want to go down to 10 men through one mistimed tackle.

“They then scored and we kept him on the pitch because he is an attacking-type midfielder who can maybe get us back into it.”

One thought on “Charlton Athletic boss Dean Holden on not making any substitute changes against Wycombe Wanderers

  • I cannot remember the last time I saw a game at The Valley where Charlton made no substitutions. In all honesty, Charlton were doing quite well against a highly fancied Wycombe team and, in reality, I could not see who could come off the bench and make an impact on the game for Charlton. Well done Dean for keeping faith.
