IS AUSTIN’S MIND ELSEWHERE?
TONY Watt came off the bench at half-time to bring this season-opening London derby at the Valley to life.
The young Scottish striker opened the scoring within minutes of coming on and proved the difference in the end.
Charlton weathered an early QPR storm to regroup after the break and, while neither side were bursting with creative vim, it was the home side who crucially took their chances when they came.
By contrast, R’s striker Charlie Austin seemed to run out steam late on, and his mind may well be elsewhere. Or maybe it was just an offday for the in-demand star.
