Blackburn Rovers 1 Charlton Athletic 1

Charlton held high-flying Blackburn to a draw at Ewood Park on Saturday.

Dickson Etuhu put the hosts ahead after just 16 minutes of the Championship match but it was all-square when Johnnie Jackson (pictured) netted 11 minutes later.

That goal made amends for a penalty blunder just a minute earlier when Morten Gamst Pedersen had brought Leon Cort down in the box but Paul Robinson saved the spot-kick with his legs from Jackson.

Blackburn – playing for the first time since manager Steve Kean quit the club – put the pressure on in the second half, with chances from Nuno Gomes volleyed over and Jordan Rhodes going wide.

But the best chance for the winner fell to Charlton in stoppage time but Robinson made a great save to deny Bradley Wright-Phillips’ acrobatic effort.

The result leaves Charlton sitting 20th in the table after nine games.
