A late Lyle Taylor penalty rescued a point for Charlton as they drew with Barnsley to maintain their unbeaten start to life back in the Championship.

The striker sent Samuel Radlinger the wrong way just a minute before time, his third in as many games, after Conor Gallagher was fouled in the box by Bambo Diaby.

Charlton looked as though they were headed for their first defeat of the season after Gallagher cancelled out a Cauley Woodrow wonder strike before Conor Chaplin restored the Tykes’ lead.

Despite losing Chris Solly through injury, and having fought off a dominant second-half showing from Barnsley, Charlton came away from Oakwell with at least a point.

Charlton have now won two and drawn one of their opening three Championship games after they defeated Blackburn Rovers and Stoke City respectively.

Lee Bowyer, who made wholesale changes in the Carabao Cup defeat to Forest Green Rovers, named the same starting 11 which defeated play-off chasing Stoke City 3-1 at The Valley.

Gallagher, Josh Cullen and Jonathan Leko retained their places while it was a little too soon for the Addicks’ 13th summer arrival Erhun Oztumer.

Oztumer, 28, often dubbed the ‘Turkish Messi’ arrived on a free transfer after leaving crisis-hit Bolton Wanderers just 24 hours earlier. He returned on a two-year deal after beginning his career in the club’s academy.

Charlton, debuting their new away kit in the Oakwell clash, started the brighter of the two teams. Ben Purrington missed a guilt-edge chance before Cullen was crucially denied by Diaby from close-range.

Bowyer was dealt an early injury blow when a clash of heads involving Ben Williams forced Chris Solly to be substituted for Deji Oshilaja just 24 minutes into the game.

Despite the Addicks having the better chances, Barnsley edged in front when Woodrow hit a stunning volley into the top corner on 34 minutes, his first Championship goal this season. The former Fulham striker brought the ball under his spell and let it drop to his feet before firing in.

The Tykes threatened to double their lead when Woodrow got on the end of Mallik Wilks’ cross, only for Dillon Phillips to get down low well, as Lyle Taylor going down sparked further injury fears.

The visitors, who were temporarily down to 10 men, struck back when Gallagher swept home five minutes from half-time following Jonny Williams’ cross. It’s the Chelsea loanee’s second Championship goal in as many starts.

Taylor would return eventually before the two sides went into the break level, with Charlton top of the table thanks to Sheffield Wednesday trailing to 10-man Millwall at the time.

Barnsley raced out of the blocks to retake the lead just four minutes into the restart. A superb move picked apart Charlton’s defence before Chaplin finished it off thanks to a Luke Thomas assist.

Pressure began to mount and, after Wilks took aim from the edge of the box, the Addicks were caught out again when Chaplin shimmied past Tom Lockyer but fired wide.

Although momentum had clearly shifted, Taylor forced save out of Radlinger before he and Diaby crucially denied substitute Chuks Aneke from close-range.

The Addicks’ breakthrough arrived in the closing stages when Gallagher was adjudged to have been fouled in the box by Diaby, with referee Matthew Donohue pointing to the spot.

Leisurely walking up to the ball before converting the spot-kick, Taylor made it three in three.
