Karl Robinson says Charlton’s FA Cup exit could be a blessing in disguise with promotion the priority.

The Addicks were knocked out of the second-round after losing 3-1 to AFC Wimbledon on Sunday.

At 1-1, Jay Dasilva hit the post and Josh Magennis missed a sitter before Lyle Taylor netted a second-half brace.

Robinson said: “One thing we didn't need was a replay - I think if you spoke to AFC Wimbledon - they would've said the same thing.

“I wanted to win the game but if you go out in round three or four they are not moments that will live long in the memory.

“It will be the [hopeful] success in the beginning of May and it will be that moment we look back on and want to be remembered for.

“We’re disappointed because we wanted to win. But on reflection, now that we’re out, we have to focus on the league.”

Sloppy defensive play from Charlton cost them at Kingsmeadow. Ezri Konsa and Ben Amos’ miscommunication led to the first goal, while the young centre-back should have stopped Cody McDonald’s run for the second.

Robinson conceded that his two centre-halves, Konsa and Naby Sarr, looked fatigued.

The Liverpudlian added: “We looked a bit open and expansive today.

“We feel aggrieved we haven't taken our chances. We created the best chances of the game and didn't take them. We've not won because we've missed chances.

“We've looked a bit open and more disjointed than we’d like to be. When the league is back next Saturday, it will be a different Charlton side.

“Naby had one of his worst games - and he’s played really well all season but looked fatigued and tired. Ez looked fatigued too. The centre-backs looked off it but that’s because they've been playing so well this season.”
