    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Alan Peacock, evading the brutal attentions of Argentine captain Ruben Navarro, thought he had started his international career with an early goal when he headed a Charlton cross wide of the goalkeeper. But Navarro managed to push the ball out with his hand. Ice-cool Flowers scored from the spot for the third successive match. Charlton then crashed in one of his specials, and midway through the second half Jimmy Greaves made it 3-0 after the goalkeeper had failed to hold a Douglas cross. A defensive muddle let Sanfillipo in for a late consolation goal. Suddenly, the confidence started to return to a team that had been down in the dumps because of 1) their form and 2) a training camp situated in the middle of nowhere that depressed several of the players.
