Charlton came from behind to beat Fulham Under-21s 3-2 in the Checkatrade Trophy.

Late goals from Joe Dodoo and Joe Aribo cancelled out Cameron Thompson’s second-half strike.

Ben Reeves initially drew the Addicks level after Jon Dagur Thorsteinsson gave Fulham a fourth-minute lead.

Here are five things we learned…

Ben Reeves and Mark Marshall continue to build-up their fitness

Both players have struggled with injuries since arriving at the club in the summer. But now, they seem to be injury-free.

The attacking midfielders played 69 minutes and put in solid performances.

Reeves scored his second Charlton goal, while Marshall tormented Fulham’s left-back. Karl Robinson has confirmed they will both start the FA Cup tie against Truro City, which will give them another chance to gain more minutes.

The Checkatrade Trophy reaches a new low

Only 741 fans turned out to watch the game - and that was the lowest ever crowd at the Valley for a first-team fixture.

It beat the previous record of 817 against Bradford in the Full Members Cup in 1986.

The poor attendance was just a reminder of the apathy shown towards the competition.

While it provides a good platform for younger players to feature, most supporters aren't going to come and watch a second or third string team on a cold winter evening.

Joe Dodoo’s confidence boost

Despite having a quiet game, Dodoo’s goal will do him the world of good.

The Rangers loanee had been an unused sub for six successive games before making his first Addicks start against Fulham.

With Truro City and Portsmouth to come in less than a week, those cup ties will present more opportunities for the 22-year-old to play and stand out.

He is playing second fiddle to Josh Magennis, but could begin to push the striker if he keeps on scoring.

Jamie Mascoll is an exciting prospect

Plucked from non-league side Dulwich Hamlet in August, Mascoll made his senior debut for the Addicks.

And the left-back looked very, very good.

No one got past him and he offered a serious threat on the left side.

He only signed a one-year contract, however, Checkatrade Trophy fixtures will give him the perfect opportunity to showcase his talent in the men’s side.

And if he replicates his display against Fulham in future games, then he will surely extend his stay in SE7.

Robinson’s harsh words will come as a good learning curve for Charlton’s youngsters

The Charlton boss was angry with his players despite advancing to the next round of the competition with a game to spare.

He wasn’t happy with the Addicks’ performance and had a go at them at full-time.

And he had a right to. Up until Dodoo’s 89th-minute equaliser, Charlton never looked like scoring a second goal.

But the most important thing is they got the win without playing too well – and that will please Robinson.

The youngsters have a chance to impress the boss in the final group stage game against Portsmouth on Tuesday.
