A point was the least Charlton deserved at Craven Cottage according to Addicks boss Lee Bowyer.

Fulham came from behind twice in the London derby to share the points after Conor Gallagher and Macauley Bonne’s efforts were cancelled out by Ivan Cavaleiro and Aleksander Mitrovic.

Despite conceding the lions share of possession in the second half, Bowyer felt his side were more than worthy of taking a point back to The Valley.

“Very good performance, I think it’s the minimum we deserved over the 90 minutes,” he said.

“It’s probably a fair result, but we could’ve left with three points, their second goal was off-side, another big decision.

“We got out tactics spot on again.

“I thought our work rate, our pressing, worked.

“They changed formation and they don’t change their formation usually, but they had to because they were never going to break us down.

“Fair play to Scot (Parker) he recognised and changed it and were better than us to second half.

“We’re talking about a top top side, they’ll be in the top two or three at the end of the season

“They’re Premiership players from start to finish, and when you look at it like that it’s a good point.

Surprised?! No

Charlton find themselves sitting eighth in the Championship on 18 points with an international break on the horizon.

Their positive start to the season has surprised many, but one person who hasn’t been shocked is the Addicks boss.

“Surprised? No, I believe in my players.

“I know they’ll give me 100% every time, they can play football.

“The thing I wish hoping for is what’s happened.

“People underestimated us, not Scott – I know he would’ve had his players at it.

“But I’m sure people are thinking they’ve just come up, but the way we play, the way we press, will surprise teams.

“I noticed teams in this division stands off teams, they let you play, let you do what your good at, and we don’t do that, and that surprises teams.”
