Charlton Lose away at Blackburn

A disappointing weekend for Addicks fans.

Jordan Rhodes scored a goal in each half as Blackburn beat Charlton to register their first win of the season.

Addicks keeper Nick Pope had twice denied Rhodes, before the striker gave Rovers the lead with a close-range header following Hanley’s flick on.

Charlton manager Guy Luzon said after the match, “I thought that our attitude today was good. We started the game well, organised in defence and in attack we created some good occasions in the first half.

“In this division it’s very important to score the first goal and, unfortunately, Blackburn scored in the last minute of the half.”

At full-time, Blackburn 3, charlton Athletic 0.
