- FT Charlton 1-1 Nottingham Forest
- Andy Reid's early free-kick puts the visitors in front at the break
- But Charlton put the brakes on their three-game losing streak thanks to Marvin Sordell's 50th minute equaliser
That's it from me. Good night.
Blackpool next up here on Saturday. Saw them recently at Millwall and wasn't that impressed. If Charlton are in the same mood as they were tonight then they will be quietly confident of picking up three points going into the international break.
The game has finished. A point the least Charlton deserved after a much improved performance.

#cafc just have to take their chances. We look the better side. @CAFCofficial— @jamo2311 01 October 2013
HT 0-1. Charlton the better side, gone close through Stephens and Wilson, but Andy Reid's free-kick the difference at the moment. #cafc— @G92Jones 01 October 2013
Charlton 0-1 Forest: Reid's early goal gives Forest dream start but Charlton have come close more than once to equalising
Addicks so close Stephens' initial shot parried out but Church denied and then Stephens blasts over from outside box
We ain't playing that badly. Just need some luck like Forest have had #cafc— @_MrDick 01 October 2013
Know Mackie's missed a decent chance for #nffc but #cafc must be wondering how they haven't scored themselves here— @BeckyGamester 01 October 2013
Almost 1-1 as Lawrie Wilson's curler from the edge of area goes just wide with Darlow at full stretch
Not so great that time by Wiggins, takes an ambitious and speculative 30 yard shot that goes well over the bar
Wiggins makes a crucial challenge to stop Forest attack in its tracks. He has been Charlton's key man so far.
Almost 2-0 as Lawrie Wilson clears off the line from Mackie after the Forest player had initially been denied by Hamer.
Forest keeper Darlow alert enough to tip behind cross for a corner
Sordell's shot blocked, some home fans scream for a penalty. Claims a bit optimistic.
🙏 keeping the faith #cafc— @rachelsmart1 01 October 2013
How are Charlton poor they are sounding strong #nffc #cafc— @MartinBiddulph 01 October 2013
Stephens sees effort go off traget while Reid's cross at other end just fails to find the head of Derbyshire
Better from Charlton. Another low Wiggins delivery comes in from the left and Sordell sees his shot blocked.
Chance for Addicks. Crisss whipped in from the left by Wiggins and Church header put behind for a corner by Karl Darlow in the Forest goal.
Reid has another attempt on goal, this time a low drive from just outside the box which flies about a foot wide
Worst possible start for an Addicks side low on confidence. How do they respond to this? Next 20 minutes are crucial
Andy Reid back to haunt his former club with a free-kick which beats Ben Hamer
Forest make the perfect start
The game is underway
Here come the two teams
No Kermo so Sordell gets a chance to start with Church up front
Am in my seat now ready for kick-off. Just looking at the Forest line-up and it is impressive. Andy Reid a familiar face here of course but there are also the likes of Nathaniel Chalobah, Jamie Mackie and Dexter Blackstock who catch the eye. Former Millwall striker Darius Henderson is on the bench with ex-Addick loanee Greg Halford.
Forest: Darlow, Lichaj, Hobbs, Collins, Cohen, Chalobah, Lansbury, Reid, Mackie, Blackstock, Derbyshire. Subs: Harding, Henderson, Jara, de Vries, Cox, Abdoun, Halford
Charlton: Hamer, Wilson, Wiggins, Wood, Morrison, Cousins, Gower, Stephens, Harriott, Church, Sordell. Subs: Alnwick, Hughes, Evina, Dervite, Cook, Stewart, Pigott.
Good evening from The Valley, I'm Paul Green and will be updating tonight's live blog.
