Charlton manager Lee Bowyer claimed their 2-1 win at Burton was the ‘best three points of the season.’

Karlan Grant’s penalty and an 88th minute Jason Pearce header cancelled out Lukas Atkins first half penalty and give the Addicks their fourth consecutive victory.

It was a backs against the wall effort from the visitors as Burton dominated possession and chances, making the victory that little bit sweeter for the manager.

“It was 100 per cent smash and grab,” said Bowyer.

“But there have been a lot of games where we have deserved the three points and left with nothing this season, so I’m going to take the points and run.”

The victory keeps Charlton in the play-off spots, two points above Doncaster two points below them but with a game in hand.

In their last game, a 3-1 win over Bristol Rovers, Bowyer praised their ‘winning ugly’ mentality, and their victory at the Pirelli Stadium delighted him further.

“That’s the best three points we’ve won this season because those are the ones that you don’t deserve.

“But you dig deep, fight and compete to get the three points, so I am over the moon.”

Charlton’s form has obviously sparked promotion talk around The Valley, and Bowyer was not one to dampen the faithful’s spirits.

“These Tuesday nights are the one that get you promotion.

“All I ask is 100 per cent, dig in, fight and compete with each other and, again, it was a dogged team performance on a Tuesday night. That’s what you need on a Tuesday night and that’s what we’ve just done.”

Charlton now turn their attentions to Doncaster in the FA Cup second round.
