Well that's your lot. You can read Steve Marshall's wonderfully-crafted report if you fancy it.

Ipswich never looked troubled by Charlton and move level with sixth-placed Birmingham before Saturday's 15:00 GMT kick-offs.

But this performance will worry Addicks fans. On this evidence, it could be a long, hard season for them in the Championship.

You can follow the rest of today's football via this link, but for me it's goodbye.

FT: Charlton 0-3 Ipswich

Ipswich striker and man of the match Daryl Murphy told Sky Sports.

"We think we're heading in the right direction. The last few results we've had have been quite good. We just need to keep winning games and hopefully continue the way we're playing."

FT: Charlton 0-3 Ipswich

Ipswich goalscorer Freddie Sears told Sky Sports:

"It's been a while since I scored. I'm buzzing to get the goal but the most important thing was three points and another good win.

"We sewed it up in the first half and although they put some pressure on us at the start of the second half, once we got the third it was game over."

Ipswich have been superb and thoroughly deserve the win. Charlton started this match with an air of confidence and they never gave up. It will be interesting to see what they do in their next game. They are a capable side but they are just short of goals.

FT: Charlton 0-3 Ipswich

That match will have given Charlton interim manager Karel Fraeye a headache. The Belgian had hoped the Addicks were back on track with two straight victories against promotion contenders, but today's defeat is a blow to that momentum.

FULL-TIME

Charlton 0-3 Ipswich

That was a textbook away performance by Ipswich today: tight at the back and taking their chances when they got them.

Two goals from Daryl Murphy takes him to six from his last three matches, while Freddie Sears ended a run of 11 without scoring.

Charlton 0-3 Ipswich

Reza Ghoochannejhad has a glorious chance to head one back for the hosts, but nods wide of the mark from Chris Solly's pin-point cross.

Charlton 0-3 Ipswich

I'd love to be able to bring you some dramatic late action, but I can't - Johann Berg Gudmundsson's cross into the area easily dealt with by Ipswich defender Christophe Berra.

SUBSTITUTION

Charlton 0-3 Ipswich

Mick McCarthy runs down the clock a little more, bringing off goalscorer Freddie Sears for Australian Tommy Oar for a cameo appearances at The Valley.

We also have four minutes of injury time to be played.

Charlton 0-3 Ipswich

This game appears to be frittering to an end now. Ipswich have offered much. Charlton very little.

Charlton 0-3 Ipswich

Ricardo Vaz Te has looked very dangerous since coming on for Charlton, but his powerful volley is once more kept out by the alert Dean Gerken - desperate to get a clean sheet.

SUBSTITUTION

Charlton 0-3 Ipswich

Ainsley Maitland-Niles

Ipswich winger Ainsley Maitland-Niles has not been that involved today, but gets a warm round of applause from the travelling fans as he comes off for Giles Coke.

Full time at Barnsley

Charlton 0-3 Ipswich

Conor Hourihane had the final say at Oakwell as his injury-time goal earned Barnsley a 1-1 draw with Sheffield United.

Chris Basham had given the Blades a half-time lead.

Charlton 0-3 Ipswich

I say that, but Dean Gerken makes a marvelous save to deny Ricardo Vaz Te moments later when the Charlton forward heads powerfully towards goal and the Ipswich keeper palms it away with his left hand.

Charlton 0-3 Ipswich

Finally Charlton get a set-piece into a dangerous area, but Dean Gerken is equal to Patrick Bauer's header in front of goal - the first time the Ipswich keeper has really been tested today.

Equaliser at Oakwell

Charlton 0-3 Ipswich

Think Oakwell is quite excitable at the moment...

GOAL BARNSLEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GET IN!!!!!!!!!

CONOR HOURIHANE WITH A BEAUTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

90+5 - WOW! OAKWELL GOES WILD. Ball falls to Hourihane 25 yards out and BANG, fires one in. 1-1! #TykesLive

Charlton 0-3 Ipswich

Brett Pitman is the latest Ipswich player to have a crack at goal - being given space almost the size of Kent outside the box and volleying straight at Stephen Henderson. It is all too easy for Ipswich to get chances in this match.

Charlton 0-3 Ipswich

Great footwork from Ricardo Vaz Te sets up Ademola Lookman, but the Charlton youngster can't get the ball out of his feet and Ipswich clear the danger.

That sums up the Addicks' afternoon.

Into injury time at Oakwell

Charlton 0-3 Ipswich

Not long left in South Yorkshire where Sheffield United still lead Barnsley 1-0.

It looks like it's not going to be Barnsley's day as Lewin Nyatanga has now headed against the bar.

SUBSTITUTION

Charlton 0-3 Ipswich

Not really a surprise but Charlton bring off striker Simon Makienok - on a yellow card and anonymous for most of the match - for Reza Ghoochannejhad.

It was a terrific move. There was a terrific dummy in a central position and it was worked to the left to Daryl Murphy, who dispatched it into the net. The boy is on fire.

Charlton 0-3 Ipswich

It could have got even worse for Charlton, but Ipswich defender Christophe Berra can old head over from a set-piece. Charlton have got to hold themselves together.

GOAL (Murphy)

If Ipswich's first goal was scrappy, their third was a thing of sheer beauty.

Town play their way through Charlton and midfielder Jonathan Douglas flicks through to Daryl Murphy, who passes home past his Republic of Ireland team-mate Stephen Henderson.

Surely this is now game, set and match.

Charlton 0-2 Ipswich

And as I say that - Tareiq Holmes-Dennis hangs the ball up in the area, but Ipswich keeper Dean Gerken continues his afternoon of catching practice and gathers easily.

And in League One

Charlton 0-2 Ipswich

Sheffield United still lead 1-0 at Barnsley thanks to Chris Basham's first-half header. 

The Tykes are continuing to push, though, with Sam Winnall seeing a header come back off the post.

Into the last 10 minutes at Oakwell.

As Ipswich midfielder Cole Skuse receives treatment for a bloodied nose, Charlton will think on the fact they have to find better quality to their danger men to cancel out Daryl Muprhy's opener and Freddie Sears' deflected strike.

YELLOW CARD

Charlton 0-2 Ipswich

Christophe Berra has done a proper job on Charlton's big Danish striker Simon Makienok all afternoon - and the Addicks striker is the first to go into the referee's book this afternoon for tangling with the defender in the air. Bit of nothing, mind.

Charlton 0-2 Ipswich

Charlton look on top at the moment but just can't seem to find any quality delivery.

Johann Berg Gudmundsson's corner - after great work from Ademola Lookman - is headed away by Ipswich and once more the Addicks defenders trudge back to their own half.

Charlton 0-2 Ipswich

Charlton midfielder Johann Berg Gudmundsson has a great chance to swing in a free-kick from the left after Cole Skuse's foul on Chris Solly.

But the Iceland international's delivery is easily dealt with by Ipswich. A familiar pattern is developing.

Charlton 0-2 Ipswich

Simon Makienok has struggled to get involved so far, but leaves his mark on Christophe Berra, who early accidentally tread on the Charlton striker's hand.

Berra and Makienok come together, leaving the Scot needing treatment. The cynic in me says it may just be a tactic for him to slow the game down as the Addicks look in the ascendancy.

Charlton 0-2 Ipswich

It's end-to-end stuff now as Charlton forward Ricardo Vaz Te has a dig at goal, but the sting in his strike is taken out by an onrushing defender and Dean Gerken can hold comfortably.

Charlton 0-2 Ipswich

Goodness me did Daryl Murphy connect with this one.

The Ipswich striker plays a neat one-two and absolutely wellies the ball towards goal, but it creeps just wide from outside the area. That could have broken the net.

Charlton 0-2 Ipswich

A lovely one-two allows Chris Solly space to cross into the area, but Dean Gerken catches under a great deal of pressure.

That was better from the hosts.

Charlton 0-2 Ipswich

At the other end, Ipswich winger Freddie Sears finds space on the right, but his cross into the area is easily dealt with by keeper Stephen Henderson.

He has certainly been the more busy of the two keepers today.

Charlton 0-2 Ipswich

Ricardo Vaz Te is immediately involved in the action, but his cross is too long for Simon Makienok - who it has to be said has barely looked interested today.

Charlton 0-2 Ipswich

Karel Fraeye
Empics

Back at The Valley Ipswich get us back under way.

We've also had a substitution at half-time, with Charlton interim boss Karel Fraeye replacing full-back Morgan Fox with forward Ricardo Vaz Te. Positive move.

Update from Oakwell

Barnsley have wasted a big chance to level at Oakwell.

Neill Collins brought down fellow former Wolves man Adam Hammill in the box but Sheffield United keeper George Long has turned away Conor Hourihane's penalty. Still 1-0 to the Blades.

HT: Charlton 0-2 Ipswich

Will the visitors press home their advantage and go four unbeaten, or can Charlton continue their upsurge under Karel Fraeye?

Half-time analysis

Charlton 0-2 Ipswich

Mick Mills

Ipswich deserve their lead, no question. Their performance has been very professional. Charlton started very well but they didn't get any reward and they didn't create any chances. Ipswich slowly took control of the game and have got themselves in front.
