Leaburn scores in Valley draw

Miles Leaburn got his sixth goal in 19 appearances as Charlton drew 1-1 with Peterborough at The Valley to move up to 17th in the table.

Kanu started up front with new supremo Dean Holden saying he wanted energy and power in his attack.

Ashley Maynard-Brewer made an excellent double save to deny Kwame Poku and Joe Ward in the 36th minute.

After a fairly dull first half, the game livened up in the second half.  Scott Fraser sent a free kick narrowly wide then Leaburn scored a fine headed goal in the 49th minute.   The assist was provided by Kanu with a good cross.

Man of the match Sean Clare marauded through the middle before hitting the left post. Only some fine goalkeeping from rookie ‘keeper Will Blackmore and a poor miss from Rak-Sakyi stopped Charlton easing into a bigger lead before a Jonson Clarke-Harris header from a deep Joe Ward corner travelled into the back of the net through Ashley Maynard-Brewer legs after a touch from Lucas Ness in the 66th minute.

Kelland Watts and Poku both hit the bar for Peterborough before Jesurun Rak-Sakyi sent a glorious effort wide after being cued up by Leaburn.

Dean Holden thinks a point was a fair result:
