JOHNNIE Jackson scored his first goal for Charlton on Saturday – but was hardly in the mood to celebrate his personal landmark.

The Tottenham Academy graduate nodded what looked to be a stoppage time winner for the Addicks against Dagenham, only for the Essex side to net a second equaliser of the game moments later.

And Jackson admitted the turn of events spoiled what should have been a special moment for him after joining the Reds in the summer.

He explained: “I’ve scored in injury time before but they usually turn out to be just a consolation or the winner, but not a winner that’s then cancelled out two minutes later.

“It was strange. I have mixed feelings as obviously I was pleased to score but gutted that we threw it away at the end.

“We blame ourselves for putting ourselves under pressure in the second half, but in the first half we dominated and should have been out of sight. “

Despite having such a momentous occasion dampened by another two points dropped, the 28-year-old admitted he is loving life at his new club, for whom he played four times on loan last season before making the switch permanent in July.

He said: “When I was on loan here I really enjoyed it.

“It’s a massive club and I said to myself then if the opportunity does come my way in the summer then it’s something I probably want to go for.

“Then it happened and the manager came in for me and Notts were good enough not to stand in my way or ask for a fee and things like that.

“Obviously being from London as well meant it suited me to come back down South.”

Jackson switched to midfield from his more regular recent position as left-back following an injury to Kyel Reid at The Valley on Saturday, and after spending the majority of his career as a central midfielder he revealed he hopes to eventually reclaim that spot in Phil Parkinson’s side.

He added: “I like playing at left-back, but I see myself as a central midfielder by trade.

“It’s where I spent most of my career and I would like to get an opportunity to play there as well but at the moment I’m glad to be in the side.

“The aim first of all is to get into the side and make sure I have a place every week, and when the opportunity arises to play in the middle then I’ll take it and hopefully prove my worth there as well.”
