Sylvan gets an hour but Town go down to the Addicks

Charlton came out on top at Portman Road as Sylvan Ebanks-Blake continued his return from injury. 

The Town striker completed just over an hour against the Addicks, following on from his substitute appearance in the goalless draw against Blackpool at the weekend – his first game back after a hamstring injury. 

Charlton could have been in front early if not for a strong Tyrone Mings tackle that prevented Tobi Sho-Silva shooting from the edge of the box. 

The visitors got a deserved opener in the 28th minute though. Harry Gerard was given a lot of space and the midfielder fired in from the edge of the box, with Michael Crowe well beaten. 

Blues were fortunate to go into half-time just the one goal down after Piotr Parzyszek headed against the bar from a corner. 

Just before the hour Town claimed a penalty when Anthony Wordsworth looked to have been pushed when jumping for a header, but nothing was given by referee Paul Burnham. 

The Addicks killed the game off with 10 minutes remaining, Sho-Silva heading in at the near post from a corner.

Substitute Mark Timlin had a chance to get Blues back in the game but he took too much time to shoot at the back post and his effort was blocked. 

Town: Crowe, Richardson, Mings, Wordsworth, Sowumni, Clarke, Hammond, Lawrence (Timlin 60), Ebanks-Blake (Adekunle 63), Bishop, Michael-Percil (Doherty 73). Subs not used: McDermid, Leddy.

Charlton: Hamer, Muldoon, Fox, Lennon, Feeley, Munns, Robinson, Gerard, Sho-Silva, Daniel (Jordan 73), Parzyszek. Subs not used: Phillips, Afolabi, Kennedy.
