The old five

Charlton moved back into the play off places after a 5-1 victory over Plymouth Argyle tonight showed that goals can come from all over the pitch.

Jesurun Rak-Sakyi made an instant impact on his Charlton debut,  The teenage wiinger finished from close range after Argyle keeper Michael Cooper could only parry Jayden Stockley's header after 11 minutes.

Plymouth were fortunate not to be trailing by a bigger margin before James Wilson was sent off for handling Charlie Kirk's goalbound shot. Stockley stepped up to send Cooper the wrong way from the spot in the 41st minute.

Sean Clare arrowed in a spectacular third goal from the edge of the box just before the first half ended.

Plymouth pulled one back when Morgan Whittaker punished a loose Jack Payne touch to drive in on goal and tuck away a low right-footed finish on 71 minutes.

But Charlie Kirk extinguished any faint hopes of a comeback as he converted an Albie Morgan cross at the back post before substitute Miles Leaburn capped off a miserable evening in the capital for the Green Army.

Attendance was 12,392 with 1,160 away fans.
