Lead cut to five points

Charlton's lead at the top of League 1 was cut to five points after they drew 1-1 at Walsall while Sheffield Wednesday won their game.    However, we are eight points above third place while the Invincibles lost at home to Bournemouth.

Walsall went ahead from a corner, but a cross from Ephraim enabled Kermorgant to equalise with a header just before the break.   Danny Hollands’ fine flick saw Hogan Ephraim scamper down the left and, with Lee Beevers backing off, the winger delivered a superb cross for Kermorgant to score.

Hollands did not make the best of a good chance on 68 minutes.  The midfielder was left free in the middle from Kermorgant’s knock-down but could only plant his header straight at Walker.

Suddenly the game opened up and only Darel Russell’s goal-line header denied Sadler’s curling effort four minutes later after substitute Claude Gnakpa bulldozed his way through.

It was end to end stuff and the impressive Hollands volleyed over with 13 minutes remaining.

Ephraim hit the post towards the end of the game.

An Addick who was there commented, 'Dreadful refereeing, BWP given no protection. At one corner two defenders literally held him in the goal - shocking officials.  Solly was excellent Wiggins crossing poorer than usual, Green not at his best. Whole team took 15 minutes to start bossing it.    Pitiful attendance and zealous stewards.'
