Charlton could not match their opponents at The Valley in the end as they lost 3-0 to Wigan Athletic.

Winger Gavin Massey fired the Latics into the lead shortly before the break, and later added to it with a Massey second and a goal from midfielder Sam Morsy.

It is the Addicks’ first league defeat this season and second of their Sky Bet League One campaign.

Here are five things we learned…

Charlton’s mistakes exacerbated the score

For all three goals the Addicks suffered critical lapses in concentration that, at times, made them the architects of their own downfall.

If Ahmed Kashi had been more switched on for when the ball slipped past him and into the box, then winger Gavin Massey doesn’t have an easy tap-in from ten yards out.

Similarly, if Jay Dasilva does not get caught in no man’s land a couple times then Charlton would have seen off Wigan’s threats.

Mistimed challenges, unnecessary bookings and slips on a wet surface were thematic elements on a miserable night for Robinson’s men.

Jay Dasilva could not handle Massey in the end

It may be harsh to single him out but the full back simply had one of his worst performances of the season.

The 19-year-old was unable to be his adventurous self against an opposition who pressed hard all game, which is understandable, but a quiet first half became a nightmare second.

As soon as the ball went past him on his flank for the third, Ricky Holmes knew it was game over as he put his hands on his head in disbelief.

Dasilva will learn though, as these things happen, and he is not entirely at fault. On to the next game.

Wigan executed their gameplan near-perfectly

When the game was open and end-to-end during the opening 30 minutes, Wigan looked troubled at times by both Ricky Holmes and Tarique Fosu’s direct runs which were combined with a threatening Josh Magennis up front.

But the Latics appeared to rethink their approach by nullifying Holmes, who in turn could not deliver the service to Magennis which could have given Charlton the equaliser.

More to it, their pressing on the full backs and high defensive line means it is difficult not to appraise their performance. While the Addicks were off it, the opposition were very much on.

Jake Forster-Caskey probably should have been sent off

He tended to lose the ball in midfield with a mistimed touch or an errant pass which went straight back to Wigan as the game went on.

However, a late challenge near the centre-circle of the field in the 75th minute could have been a straight red.

It is feasible that, on another day and with another referee, the midfielder would have been dismissed but it was again part of the frustrations felt on the night.

It is disappointing for Charlton but they are still third

The opposition have moved into the last of the playoff places but the Addicks are three points from automatic promotion and four from the top.

Put in that perspective, it is difficult to remain too annoyed with the result. Of course no one wants to lose 3-0 at home, however these things happen at this level and the response in the next game is far more important than the immediate reaction.

Robinson was “totally and brutally honest” in his post-match analysis and left little ambiguity over what unfolded at The Valley.

But if they can put things right at Gillingham then they should be fine.
