Charlton Athletic 1-1 Sheff Wed

Igor Vetokele
Vetokele has scored seven time for Charlton this season.

Charlton's top goalscorer Igor Vetokele came off the bench to earn his side a point at home to Sheffield Wednesday.

The visitors took a deserved first-half lead when loanee Royston Drenthe found the net with a crisp long-range effort.

A mis-hit George Tucudean effort clipped the crossbar as Charlton rallied after the break, before Vetokele made his return from injury.

Five minutes after coming on, the Belgian tapped in Rhoys Wiggins' cross to draw the relieved hosts level.

The result extends the Addicks' unbeaten home record to eight matches.

Had it not been for Vetokele, Drenthe would have deservedly grabbed the headlines with his excellent display.

The forward had fired a left-footed short narrowly wide of the post before opening the scoring with a quality run and shot, Wednesday's first goal in four matches.

Chris Solly's 30-yard effort almost drew Charlton level after the break, as they gradually piled on the pressure.

Vetokele tapped home from a Wiggins cross-shot on 70 minutes for his seventh of the season.

The Addicks thought they had won it late on but Johann Gudmundsson was correctly adjudged to have been offside and, in the end, both sides had to settle for a point.

Sheffield Wednesday are now without a win in eight matches in all competitions, but remain unbeaten on their travels since September.

Bob Peeters: Charlton boss on Sheffield Wednesday draw

Charlton manager Bob Peeters on striker Igor Vetokele: "As soon as I called him to get ready to come on, I think the whole stadium went delirious.

"Vetokele and [Johann] Gudmondsson are good players. We don't have a big squad, but they can make a difference."

Stuart Gray: Wednesday head coach on Charlton draw

Sheffield Wednesday manager Stuart Gray: "I'm just disappointed because I feel we have thrown two points away. We had better attempts at goal, Royston Drenthe was unplayable in the first half and Chris Maguire's had a great chance to make it 2-0 before half time.

"But in the second half, we were slow to get going and we were poor in possession."
