Robinson breaks his duck

Karl Robinson secured his first victory for Charlton with a 1-0 victory over his old club MK Dons thanks to a first half Ademola Lookman goal. Charlton are now 12th, six points off the play off places.

650 or so 'stupid people' saw the victory, a banner declaring the ignorance of the Addicks supporters.

Charlton lined up in a 4-3-3 formation with Magennis, Ajose and Lookman up front.

After a scrappy opening, the Franchisees created more chances. Fortune smiled on Charlton when Dean Bowditch had to go off injured with the home side sowing confusion by bringing a second George Williams on to the pitch.

Then somewhat against the run of play Crofts picked out Lookman with a superb defence splitting ball and the youngster finished calmly on 38 minutes.

Johnnie Jackson had to be pulled off with an injury in the second half and the impressive Aribo came on. The home fans became increasingly restive and vocal.

Bauer defended well. Aribo set up Ajose, but his shot came off the keeper. Lookman was booked for time wasting and replaced by Chicksen.

In the four minutes added on, there was the rare treat of a cameo by Roger Johnson. Ulvestad powered towards goal and Walsh got a yellow card for bringing him down.

Interesting to see former Addicks Yann Kermorgant and Callum Harriott score great goals for Reading today.
