Lyle Taylor’s penalty rescued a point for Charlton as their draw at Barnsley helped them maintain an unbeaten start to life back in the Championship.

After Conor Gallagher was brought down in the box by Bambo Diaby, Taylor sent goalkeeper Samuel Radlinger the wrong way just a minute before time.

It’s the striker’s third goal and three games and means the Addicks have gained seven points from their opening three fixtures to begin the season.

Here are five things we learned…

Both teams had great chances to score

There were several times during the clash at Oakwell wherein both sides put pressure on the opposition defence, and their goalkeepers.

After Ben Purrington missed a glorious chance at Radlinger’s near post, Diaby made a crucial intervention to deny Josh Cullen in the Barnsley box.

Conor Chaplin steered wide a great scoring opportunity and Charlton stopper Dillon Phillips did well to deny Cauley Woodrow from close-range following Mallik Wilks’ cutback cross.

It’s a tough call but Barnsley just about edged it

Given their second-half showing, and having taken the lead twice, the Tykes may feel like two points were dropped rather than one gained.

They flew out of the blocks in the second 45 minutes and asked questions of the visitors. What let them down was their execution.

Although Charlton did look undeterred in their search for the equaliser, the late penalty was a major lifeline. Otherwise, Barnsley probably would have won the game.

Nottm Forest will be a big test on Wednesday

Forest will be arriving into southeast London on the back of a convincing 3-0 win at home to Birmingham City.

They have recovered from the opening day defeat to West Bromwich Albion and, with having secured back-to-back wins in all competitions, will be seeking a third straight.

Being the bookies’ favourites to go down, this is another test to see whether the Addicks are cut out for life in the Championship.

Next man up

One player who will not play a part in the Forest clash is Chris Solly, whose concussion in the draw at Barnsley has ruled him out of action.

It perhaps wasn’t how he envisaged his 300th appearance for the club would go, but it did mean Deji Oshilaja had a chance to prove his worth.

The former AFC Wimbledon captain held his own and will need to do so again. Who knows, maybe he could lock down that right-back spot.

Give Leko time

The West Brom loanee looks, and is, a handful. Tall, powerful, quick and versatile, he has a range of attributes which would strike fear into defences.

Despite having a lot to learn at his tender age of 20, time is on his side. That same time will have to be afforded to him during his spell at Charlton while he finds his feet.

His performance at Barnsley was a mixed bag, with the first-half comprising his best moments, but he struggled a bit. He may have more games like that before everything clicks.
