Charlton Athletic 1-1 Oldham Athletic

28 Sep

Peter Clarke’s 82nd-minute equaliser extended Charlton’s winless run to seven games as they drew 1-1 with Oldham.


Josh Magennis’ first-half strike looked to have given Russell Slade’s men their first three-point haul since 20 August, but they were dealt a late blow for the second home match in a row.

The Addicks’ opener came in the 22nd minute when Ricky Holmes powered his way into the box to lay the ball off to Magennis, who blasted it past Connor Ripley.

Charlton strung together 21 passes for the goal, however, it would have counted for nothing if Chris Solly was not on the line to block Freddie Ladapo’s close-range strike moments later.

The Londoners could have doubled their lead before the hour mark, but Magennis curled the ball over the bar after good footwork.

Oldham’s equaliser came when Paul Green’s lofted free-kick was met by Clarke who headed past Declan Rudd to send the 120-plus travelling fans home happy.

The Latics held on for the point despite suffering a scare when substitute Ademola Lookman struck the bar with five minutes remaining.
