Charlton Athletic 2-1 Hull City

Simon Makienok
Simon Makienok joined Charlton on a season-long loan from Palermo in the summer

Charlton's Johann Berg Gudmundsson scored the winner in the eighth minute of added time as Hull City lost for the first time this season.

Berg Gudmundsson's cross was headed in by Simon Makienok for the opener.

It looked like the Tigers had pinched a point when Abel Hernandez scored from close range in the 89th minute.

Hernandez then thought he had won it, only for his header to be ruled offside, before Berg Gudmundsson headed home deep in added time.

There was little indication of the drama that was to come in a first half low on quality and chances, with home substitute Karlan Ahearne-Grant blazing the best opportunity over the bar just before the break.

Dane Makienok gave the hosts a deserved lead when he headed in Berg Gudmundsson's centre and the midfielder nearly made it 2-0 minutes later when Allan McGregor blocked his shot when one-on-one.

Hernandez saw a deflected effort go just wide before popping up with his first goal since 22 March, after Isaac Hayden had hit the post and seen his rebound blocked.

The unbeaten Addicks won it when Makienok headed into the path of Berg Gudmundsson and the Icelander's header beat McGregor in the Hull goal.

Charlton boss Guy Luzon:

"This was an important win for the club, for the fans, for everyone.

(On Makienok) "He has been playing very well but not scored. I know his quality and knew he would score, as he did. It was an important goal but he also helped us in other ways."

Hull City boss Steve Bruce:

"Funnily enough I felt the longer the game went on we were the team more likely to win it. Don't get me wrong, for an hour they deserved to win the match.

"The first half was probably the worst I have seen in a long time, whether it was the heat or what I don't know but it was awful.

"For 30 minutes against Fulham we were superb and if we play like that then there won't be many teams that can beat us. However, if we play like we did against Charlton for an hour then there won't be many teams who won't beat us."
