Yann Kermorgant's early strike gave Charlton the lead at Bolton on Saturday but they were pegged back for a 1-1 draw.

Addicks boss Chris Powell made three changes to the side beaten by Derby last weekend with Chris Solly, Richard Wood and Simon Church replacing Dorian Dervite, Danny Green and Bradley Pritchard.

Powell's rejigged team made the better start and went in front after 11 minutes as Kermorgant found space to finish Rhoys Wiggins' low cross.

Unmarked Lawrie Wilson wasted a golden chance for the Addicks soon after, missing the target from six yards.

Chris Eagles inspired Wanderers' fightback and it was his pass that set up Kevin McNaughton for the equaliser in the final minute of the first half.

Addicks keeper Ben Alnwich made a superb save from Joe Mason, while Wiggins' volley was tipped over by Andy Lonergan at the other end as Charlton went close to a winner.

Charlton after 21st in the Championship, two points clear of the relegation zone.
