“I’m gutted that we haven’t got more from it and the players haven’t got what they deserve. I thought we were the dominant team in the match for the majority of it, so to come away and be out of the cup I’m really disappointed.

“We weren’t going to sit back and let them do what they want and dominate; this is our stadium, our pitch. We always try to play on the front foot no matter who the opposition is.

“We’ve done that today. We forced them into three changes at the break and we’ve caused them real problems throughout the game.

“I can’t keep standing here and saying that we’ve dominated the game, created great chances, great situations but haven’t scored a goal.

“We’ve limited the opposition to very little and we’ve lost 1-0. I feel like I’m stood here like after the Wycombe game, so it’s tough to take.

“We have to address it. We have to ask ourselves what we need to do, how we need to improve.

Charlton will now turn their attention to their away League One fixture against Crewe Alexandra on Wednesday night.
