It was centre-back Patrick Bauer who scored the decisive goal for Charlton after his header rebounded back to him off a Sunderland player and, laying on the ground, he found the net.

Ireland underage international Josh Cullen, on loan at Charlton from West Ham, played a key part in getting the ball into the box for the play which eventually resulted in the goal.
