Charlton boss Chris Powell was happy with a 1-1 draw at Watford on Saturday.
Gianfranco Zola's Hornets started brightly but the Addicks grew into the match and took the lead a minute before half-time.
Essaid Belkalem brought down Lawrie Wilson in the area, with Yann Kemorgant beating Manuel Almunia from the penalty spot.
Troy Deeney forced a good save from Ben Hamer as Watford responded to going behind, then Lewis McGugan wasted a good chance to equalise.
Home pressure was rewarded on 70 minutes when Daniel Pudil finished the rebound after Hamer parried a shot from Diego Fabbrini.
Addicks survived an injury-time scare that saw Deeney lift the ball over the bar from close range to leave Vicarage Road with a draw that puts them 17th in the Championship.
Boss Powell said: "We are happy with the performance. I felt my players, to a man, worked really hard for that point."
