Accrington Stanley 1-1 Charlton Athletic

Jordan Clark scored a late equaliser 12 minutes from time to rescue a point for Accrington Stanley in a 1-1 draw with Charlton.

It was the first ever meeting between the sides in the league and they shared the spoils in a lively encounter.

Charlton opened the scoring after 15 minutes when Lewis Page raced down the left wing and played in a cross, finding the head of Karlan Grant.

The forward's header hit the underside of the crossbar and bounced down with the assistant referee judging it had crossed the line for Grant's second goal of the campaign so far.

Grant could have doubled Charlton's advantage with a shot from 22 yards which was narrowly wide while Billy Kee came close for Stanley after 44 minutes but his header was just the wrong side of the upright.

Stanley pressed for the equaliser after the break but Charlton were dangerous on the breakaway, with Darren Pratley forcing a good save out of Middlesbrough loan keeper Connor Ripley.

The home side's pressure finally told when Sam Finley's ball caused chaos in the area and both Sean McConville and Offrande Zanzala had shots before Clark fired home from close range to secure a point.
