Charlton Athletic further enhanced their Play-Off credentials with an impressive 2-0 win over mid-table Plymouth Argyle at Home Park.

In an open first-half encounter, Argyle were awarded a penalty after Krystian Bielik was adjudged to have fouled Ruben Lameiras in the area.

However Graham Carey’s spot-kick was expertly saved by Charlton keeper Dillon Phillips before Freddie Ladapo then missed a gilt-edged chance from the resultant corner.

Moments later Charlton opened the scoring in the 41st minute with a fine counter-attack which eventually saw Chris Solly’s cross headed home by Lyle Taylor.

And Lee Bowyer’s side doubled their advantage four minutes into the second period as Igor Vetokele bundled the ball home after good work from Jonny Williams.

The result means Charlton are now nine games unbeaten and almost assured a Play-Off place as well as only being six points behind second-placed Barnsley with a game in hand.
