Charlton manager Phil Parkinson defended his side after they failed to find the net for the third league game in a row with a 0-0 draw with Oldham.

The Addicks could have gone level with Leeds at the top of League One but were frustrating in the final third and the blank followed on from a 3-0 defeat to Colchester and a goalless draw at Elland Road.

"I can not fault our attitude over the 12 games we have played. We are one of the top scoring sides in the league and there is always going to be a period when you do not score," said Parkinson.

"It was disappointing, but this may prove to be an important point. I thought a lot of our play was good, we just couldn't put the ball in the back of the net."
