Attendance: 7624

Referee:

A terrible night saw Charlton lose their fourth game of the season in front of the Sky cameras.

In the opening seconds a shocking challenge by Dominic Blizzard resulted in Grant Basey being taken to hospital with a suspected broken leg. The challenge was high and late but was deemed only to be worthy of a yellow card by Trevor Kettle.

Charlton's defensive vulnerabilities were again exposed when Steve Ellot had time and space to convert a right wing corner.

Akpo Sodje was presented with a free header from a corner but put his effort wide. Bailey was booked for diving in first-half injury when a penalty looked to be the correct decision. If given, the referee would have had to have shown Blizzard a second yellow card.

Mooney and Reid were introduced early in the second-half but the game was effectively over when Paul Heffernan latched on to a weak back header to outpace Dailly and crash home.

Rovers' Chris Lines was stretchered off with Mooney also having to depart after a clash of heads. Racon notched the Addicks consolation in the six added minutes.

Based on recent performances, as well as results, Charlton face a battle to stay in the play-off zone. The manager needs to decide on his best team and stick to it.

Star Player

Rob Elliot, kept his team in it.

No one wants to be too harsh...but we can have no excuses here...we looked lacking in creativity and were simply outplayed..I agree with Red God...we need a settled side...we are messing about with line ups and do not seem to have a style of play...well there is always Yeovil on Satutday,lets hope we get back on track

Really disappointed. Bristol Rovers are a good side but we can't keep slipping up like this. With all the points we've dropped over the last 5 or 6 matches, with Norwich and Leeds also doing the same, we could be top now!

I see that the ref has apologised to Parky...and admitted it should have been a red card....
