Chris Dickson is back in favour at Charlton following his display in Monday's 1-1 draw at Brentford.

With Deon Burton suspended and David Mooney injured, Addicks boss Phil Parkinson plumped for Dickson - who he recently farmed out on loan to Bristol Rovers - to lead the line.

And Dickson rewarded his faith with a lively display, culminating in winning the penalty from which Nicky Bailey earned the visitors a point at Griffin Park.

"I thought Chris did well," said Parkinson. "He worked hard and he's looked good since he's come back."

He added: "He put in a good, honest performance and there were a couple of good chances which Chris would normally take. But then he kept going and got the penalty for us. In the end, he got us back in the game with his sheer determination.

"He's looked good since he came back, his attitude has been spot on and he's trained well. I felt he deserved his opportunity."
