Captain Johnnie Jackson rescued a point for Charlton with a last-minute equaliser in a 1-1 draw at Championship play-off hopefuls Ipswich on New Year's Day.

Jackson's effort made it five points from three games over Christmas and New Year and puts Charlton 19th in the table.

Ipswich opened the scoring on 23 minutes when Daryl Murphy's cross was turned into his own net by Addicks defender Richard Wood.

Town missed the chance to double their lead when top scorer David McGoldrick's second-half penalty was saved by Ben Alnwick.

Charlton pushed hard for an equaliser, forcing the hosts to defend deeper.

Rhoys Wiggins' effort was kept out by Dean Gerken before Simon Church met Yann Kermorgant's header across goal to set up Jackson.

Charlton drew 1-1 at home to fellow strugglers Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday.

Dale Stephens finished Lawrie Wilson's through ball on 47 minutes but Wednesday levelled through Connor Wickham on 58 minutes.

Wilson scored twice in Addicks' 3-2 home win over Brighton on Boxing Day.

He cancelled out Leonardo Ulloa's opener as the first half ended level, then made it 2-1 on 58 minutes.

Kermorgant gave Charlton breathing space 15 minutes from time before Ulloa grabbed a last-minute consolation.
