Charlton boss Guy Luzon hailed Johnnie Jackson as his skipper inspired the Addicks to a dramatic 2-2 draw against Fulham.

With only ten minutes remaining, Charlton were 2-0 down and staring at a fifth successive defeat until the introduction of the skipper.

Jackson emphatically headed home Johann Berg Gudmundsson’s corner with his first touch of the match and was a catalyst in the comeback.

Luzon said: “When we were 2-0 down, it wasn't easy to respond because our momentum dropped.

“But Jackson came on and influenced everything in the game - the momentum, tempo and result of the team.

“He adds experience, character, leadership and quality to the side.

“He’s been unlucky with injuries and on some occasions I’ve wanted to play him.

“I hope he can stay fit and help us throughout the season.”

A 96th minute Jordan Cousins goal completed the comeback when he headed past Fulham keeper Andy Lonergan in front of the Sky TV cameras.

An hour had gone and Fulham were 2-0 up due to another Nick Pope error and then a cool Ross McCormack finish.

However, the Addicks squandered many chances throughout the game and Luzon felt his team deserved to win.

He said: “It was a dramatic ending and we should’ve won - we had two one-on-ones that we missed and Tony’s [Watt] last minute blocked shot.

“It’s a great comeback to get one point though, especially with our last results because it will raise our confidence.

“Football is a game of momentum and Jackson’s goal changed it and gave us even more confidence.

“In the long term, if you play well, you will achieve the results.”

The Israeli highlighted the need to work with his small squad and the international break comes at a great time as Luzon hopes to have some of his stars back.

The Charlton head coach confirmed that he would not be delving into the loan market.

He added: “As you know, we have had a lot of injuries during the last month.

“We have one thousand reasons, not one excuse.

“But I need to work with what I have - I won’t cry about it, I will continue to fight.

“I think this is our budget and we’ll stay with the squad that we have."

Charlton stay in 18th place and are only two points off the relegation zone.
