Charlton threw away a two-goal lead against fellow strugglers Yeovil and had to settle for a point on Saturday.
The Addicks travelled west with a two-point gap between themselves and Yeovil towards the bottom of the Championship table.
Two goals in eight minutes at the end of the first half put Charlton firmly in command, but it all went wrong in the second half, with the visitors conceding twice and having a man sent off.
On loan winger Cameron Stewart netted the opener for Charlton from outside the area and they were two up just before the break, when Johnnie Jackson headed home a Stewart cross.
Home keeper Chris Dunn made a great save to deny Simon Church in the second half and the hosts halved the deficit with 18 minutes left, as Joel Grant’s low cross cannoned off Michael Morrison into his own net.
Four minutes later and Yeovil levelled from the penalty spot. Grant was fouled by Andy Hughes and Ishmael Miller converted.
Charlton were left hanging on at the end for a point, after Jackson was shown a red card for a rash tackle 13 minutes from time.
