Back to reality

After last week's excitement it was back to reality for Charlton as they lost 1-0 to Bristol Rovers, John Marquis scoring for the Gas on 70 minutes from the penalty spot.  The penalty was awarded for a Dobson handball.

It was one of few chances created by either side, as Joey Barton's team were shot-shy following a break of 20 days since their last competitive game, and the in-form Addicks unable to keep a five-game unbeaten run going.

Charlton did, however, threaten twice through Miles Leaburn, who almost converted crosses from Jesurun Rak-Sakyi and Tyreece Campbell in either half, while substitute Daniel Kanu could not convert a good chance with a minute of regulation time left to play.

Rovers defender Lewis Gibson also cleared off the line in injury time to stop Leaburn's header going in and to preserve a second clean sheet in the Pirates' last four home matches.

Dean Holden thought that Charlton did not create enough chances:
