It looked as if Charlton might take all three points at Walsall tonight, but a last minute equaliser meant they had to share the spoils, although they remain 7th in the table. Addicks also had to digest the news that Jason Pearce will be out for ten weeks with knee ligament damage.

Rick Everitt tweeted that Charlton were well on top in the first half. They scored a good goal in the 13th minute when Tarique Fosu controlled Jake Forster-Caskey's lofted ball over the defence before superbly slotting home under pressure inside the box.

Saddlers goalkeeper Mark Gillespie did well to keep out Billy Clarke's thumping drive before exceptionally tipping Josh Magennis' header onto the post.
