Charlton went out of the FA Cup with a whimper on Saturday.
Addicks boss Chris Powell, pictured, saw his team lose 1-0 at home to Championship rivals Huddersfield after making six changes to the side who beat Watford on New Year’s Day.
The third-round tie was settled by an 11th-minute strike by Jermaine Beckford, who beat keeper David Button from Adam Clayton’s pass.
Beckford was brought down by last man Dorian Dervite as Charlton were reduced to 10 men just before the hour.
The Addicks, who had barely mustered a shot, were galvanised by the red card and at last forced Town keeper Alex Smithies into action from a free-kick by Salim Kerkar, pictured.
Striker Yann Kermorgant wasted the chance to snatch a replay when his late header missed the target.
Powell said: "We were down to 10 men at the end and trying to create chances from nothing but the only real positive for me was David Button showing that I’ve got two good goalkeepers."
