Charlton’s match report called the events “extremely distasteful”

Not all pre-season friendlies are friendly.

Charlton prepared for their return to the Championship by facing Romanian top-flight side Gaz Metan Medias on Thursday in what was intended to be only a 70-minute game.

However, the action didn’t even last that long as the match was abandoned after 49 minutes.

George Lapslie had given the Addicks a 1-0 lead in the first half, and just minutes into the second they were awarded a penalty, which sparked what the club’s own report called “extremely distasteful scenes”
