Charlton were forced to settle for a point after conceding late on in a 1-1 draw with Accrington Stanley.

Jordan Clark’s equaliser cancelled out Karlan Grant’s early opener in a game which the Addicks dominated in spells.

Lee Bowyer made just one change to the side that beat Shrewsbury last weekend with Arsenal loanee Krystian Bielik replacing Mark Marshall.

Charlton took a 15th-minute lead when Lewis Page’s superb cross was headed in by Grant, who scored his second goal in as many games.

The young attacker could have doubled the visitors’ advantage moments later but his powerful shot drifted wide following good work from Chris Solly.

Charlton threatened once more when Darren Pratley fizzed Grant’s cross back across goal and the ball just evaded Lyle Taylor.

Accrington’s only memorable attack of the first-half came seconds before the break as Sean McConville’s cut-back was headed wide by Billy Kee.

Charlton came out firing in the second-half with Page testing Connor Ripley with a stinging effort from a tight angle.

Pratley and Grant were next to go close as the Addicks controlled the tempo of the game.

Grant continued to look dangerous and struck the post after cutting in from the left-hand side.

That would prove to be the turning point as Accrington equalised with 12 minutes to go. Offrande Zanzala’s shot was blocked by Naby Sarr, the ball fell to McConville who forced Dillon Phillips into an excellent save before Clark smashed home the rebound.

Charlton could have won it right at the death when Grant directed a 30-yard free-kick inches wide.
