Lee Bowyer rued the chances Charlton missed in their draw with West Bromwich Albion as he insisted they should have won the game.

Josh Cullen converted a penalty two minutes into stoppage time as the Addicks were twice forced to come back from a goal down at the Hawthorns.

After Matt Phillips opened the scoring 10 minutes in, Macauley Bonne equalised on the hour mark. Substitute Hal Robson-Kanu replenished West Brom’s lead before Cullen rescued the point.

But Charlton had good chances to score earlier, with home stopper Sam Johnstone producing a magnificent double save to deny Conor Gallagher and Naby Sarr shortly before the break.

Bowyer was pleased with how his side played but expressed disappointment with the lack of clinical finishing in front of goal.

He said: “I think, tactically, we got it right again. I think, first half, we were by far better than them. We created a lot of chances but, again, we didn't take them. The same as Wednesday [against Bristol City]. But if you look at the game overall a point is probably fair.

“But I'm disappointed we've not had more because if you go by chances, clear-cut chances, we should have won the game in my eyes.

“We created chance after chance and we just didn't take them. Macauley [Bonne] obviously got his chance at the end but that was probably a bit of luck that we deserved, I think, for the performance.”

Charlton have now amassed four points from a three-match run which has seen them come up against Derby County, Bristol City and West Bromwich Albion. Derby were last season’s play-off runners-up, Bristol City are in the promotion hunt, while West Brom remain the Championship leaders.

With a week’s break before they host Preston North End, who are currently second in the table, Bowyer will be pleased with the short reprieve given the injury problems that are building up.

He added: “It's been a tough week. But to come away with four points against the three sides that we've played, and probably should have had more than that, it's been a decent week.

“Ten people [are unfit]. We've got a 24-man squad and 10 are not fit. That just shows how well they are doing and the recruitment has been good, I think, in the summer because otherwise we would have definitely struggled on another time when you lose that many players.

“The lads that have then come in are stepping up.”
