Addicks bring Bees to their knees

The Addicks chalked up their sixth straight league win thanks to first-half goals from Deon Burton and the lively Lloyd Sam to build on the new-found feel-good factor at The Valley.
For Brentford, striker Carl Cort’s diving header was brilliantly saved by Robert Elliott and then, in the 83rd minute, David Hunt’s curling free-kick clattered the crossbar.
But it was an impressive display against a Brentford side who started the afternoon unbeaten and in sixth place and confirmed why so many bookies have made Charlton favourites to charge away with the title.
If that was not enough good news for manager Phil Parkinson, the south Londoners also confirmed before kick-off that teenager Jonjo Shelvey, who has attracted interest from a clutch of Premier League clubs including Chelsea, had signed a one-year contract extension, tying him to the club until 2012.
