1 min

Charlton Athletic grabbed a stoppage time equaliser to earn a 2-2 draw against London rivals QPR in a pulsating and fiery Kiyan Prince Foundation stadium encounter.

The hosts took a sixth minute lead as Ebere Eze’s low cross was only half cleared by Charlton’s Naby Sarr with Geoff Cameron slotting home.

Nahki Wells was then presented with two massive opportunities to extend the lead – his header hitting the crossbar before being denied by a brilliant one-on-one save from Dillon Phillips.

The second-half saw a revived Charlton with Lyle Taylor levelling in the 56th minute, diverting Albie Morgan’s drilled effort into the back of the net.  

However, Marc Pugh fired the Hoops back in front 14 minutes later with a cutback from substitute Osayi-Samuel allowing the unmarked winger to convert.

Taylor almost equalised once more for the Addicks, with a deep cross from Tom Lockyer seeing the forward only able to head on to the crossbar.

But in the end, QPR’s wastefulness in front of goal came back to haunt them as Cameron’s poor header provided the perfect assist for Sarr, who kept his cool to grab a share of the points.

Key Moment

Dillion Phillips’s incredible one-on-one standing save against Nahki Wells kept Charlton in the game at a crucial time.

Moan of the Match

Jonathan Leko’s enforced first-half substitution, adding to Charlton’s long list of injury woes.

Talking Point

Lyle Taylor was back on the scoresheet following his return from injury. Out of contract in the summer – could Charlton survive without him?

Man of the Match

Ebere Eze – provided a masterclass in the art of crossing and dribbling past Charlton defenders at will.

Referee Watch

Matt Donohue (Greater Manchester) – Nothing controversial in the first half, but bizarrely booked QPR’s Ryan Manning for being kicked by Albie Morgan after the break.


Charlton’s travelling support epitomised the 12th man theory – incredibly loud from the first minute and were duly rewarded in the last.


QPR arguably shaded the encounter but defensive frailties denied either side the opportunity to earn all three points.
