Charlton rounded off their season with a third win in four games on Saturday, thanks to Callum Harriott’s hat-trick, writes Andrae Akeh.

The former England Under-19 player scored his first goal in the 61st minute with a clever run behind the Blackpool defence.

He followed this up in the last eight minutes with a left-footed strike set up by Jonathan Obika and then his low shot squeezed in at the near post to complete his hat-trick.

Charlton manager Jose Riga said: “I asked my players to end the season with a good feeling and they were able to do it.”

And on Harriott’s hat-trick, he said: “He has speed, he has pace and it’s more a question of trying to manage his emotions. Everybody knows that he has talent.”

Charlton, who confirmed their Championship status in midweek with the win over Watford at The Valley, finished the season in 18th place, seven points clear of the relegation zone.
