ADDICKS manager Johnnie Jackson believes that George Dobson's goal against Rotherham was deserving of winning the game.

Dobson's stunning strike in the 55th minute was his first goal of the season and proved to be enough to seal all three points for Charlton.

The win for the Addicks means that they have only lost once in their last five games.

Boss Jackson said: “It was a goal worthy of winning any game but I am so pleased for him (Dobson) because he has been outstanding for me. He has deserved that.

“His overall performance in the game was brilliant. Since I took over he has been a mainstay in the team.

On the rest of the game, Jackson believed that his side put in a "magnificent" performance in order to beat the Papa John's Trophy winners.

“They’re a good side with good players and threats all over the pitch. To come here and win 1-0 and with the manner of the performance was magnificent. We limited them to very little and I don’t think our goalkeeper has really made a save.

“We defended our box very well. We have limited them and had countless chances on the break. As an away performance, I am really pleased with that.

“If we stood up to their threat, I knew there would be opportunities.”
