Lee Bowyer admitted he hopes decisions even themselves out over the course of the season after seeing two penalty appeal turned down against Swansea.

Chuks Aneke was adjudged to have fouled Joe Rodon before going down under the challenge himself, before a late handball appeal was also waved away by referee Peter Banks.

The visitors left The Valley with a 2-1 win after strikes from Yan Dhanda and Andre Ayew cancelled out Jonathan Leko’s early opener.

Bowyer wouldn’t be drawn into blaming the referee, but suggested he felt hard done by.

“The referee has got hardest job in the world,” an upbeat Bowyer said.

“If we got it (the penalty), I’m sure their manager would’ve moaned.

“But I will say a lot of decision didn’t go our way tonight.

“Hopefully that will even itself out over our season because a lot has gone against us this season already.”

They gave me 100%​

Despite defeat, only the second defeat at The Valley in 2019, the Addicks boss praised his men for the commitment shown just four days after a bruising win over Leeds.

“It was a good even game between two teams that try and play.

“First 15 minutes we were the better side and got an early goal.

“We got sloppy in possession in the last 20 an gave them a lift.

“The goal from a set piece is disappointing and frustrating.

“But my men gave me 100% and that’s all I can ask from them.

“I thought a draw would’ve been a fair result, but sometimes you don’t get what you deserve.”
