In the many talking points in Charlton’s 2-0 defeat by Blackburn Rovers, it was the officiating that got fans debating the most.

In horrid conditions Tony Mowbray’s side deservedly left The Valley with three points thanks to goals from John Buckley and Tosin Adarabioyo.

Addicks boss Lee Bowyer was critical of his side and how they dealt with the adverse weather and conceded the visitors were worthy winners.

Unable to deal with the high wind, Charlton’s backline looked vulnerable throughout, especially in the first half.

One incident which highlighted this more than any was a penalty incident involving Charlton’s Jason Pearce and Rovers’ forward Dominic Samuel.

Pearce’s fellow defender Tom Lockyer misjudged the flight of the ball, leaving Samuel, who looked to have stolen a march on Pearce to run through on goal. The Charlton defender tangled with the forward who went to ground.

Bowyer said of the incident:"I thought the referee got it right. I thought there was contact on Pearce first of all that threw him off balance. Then the fella went over him. I think theres an initial nudge on him."

His opposite, Mowbray, felt otherwise, claiming he thought it wa a clear red and a penalty, although refused to dwell on it having picked up three points.

When all in the ground were expecting a red card and a penalty, referee Andy Davies blew for a foul on the Addicks defender.  A decision that had bemused even the most die-hard Charlton fan.
