Charlton suffered a second successive league defeat after losing 2-0 to Blackburn.

A Leon Best own goal against his former club and Danny Graham’s late header means Portsmouth are now level on points with the sixth-placed Addicks.

It’s now just one win in six league games for Charlton, who deserved at least a point at Ewood Park today.

Karl Robinson made two changes to the side that lost against Portsmouth last weekend with Jason Pearce and Ben Reeves coming in for Naby Sarr and Ricky Holmes.

Holmes was left out of the squad because of a quad injury, while Pearce made his first league start in almost three months.

In a slow start to the game, Blackburn threatened through Bradley Dack who couldn’t connect with the ball after two dangerous crosses in quick succession.

Charlton’s terrible luck with injuries continued when Billy Clarke limped off in the 27th minute. Best replaced the injured midfielder and immediately made an impact at the wrong end of the pitch.

The striker, who Blackburn signed for £3m in 2012, headed in a Charlie Mulgrew free-kick on the hour mark.

And Charlton should've been 2-0 down moments later, however, Derrick Williams somehow headed wide from two yards.

The Addicks were toothless going forward in the first-half but had a glorious chance to equalise against the run of play. Best teed up Reeves whose shot was too tame to trouble David Raya.

Charlton came out firing after the break and were denied by a top Raya save as Reeves’ effort looked destined for the bottom left-hand corner.

Robinson’s men camped out in Blackburn’s half in the second period and Best should have done better when his touch let him down after dispossessing Mulgrew in a dangerous position.

Charlton dominated possession but were always open to a counter-attack and Rovers failed to punish them in the 76th minute when Craig Conway's shot drifted inches wide of the goal.

Best had the opportunity to make amends for his earlier error but headed over Reeves’ cross five minutes from time.

And the Addicks’ fate was sealed in injury-time when Graham headed in from close-range.
