Danny Schofield`s injury-time strike earned 10-man Millwall a share of the spoils in a thrilling 4-4 South London derby draw at Charlton.

The game came alive in the 12th minute when Lions striker Steve Morison capitalised on a mix-up in the Addicks defence to score his seventh goal of the season.

He grabbed his second after 22 minutes, tapping home from close range after the home side failed to deal with Marc Laird`s corner.

Phil Parkinson`s men were quick to respond, and their lifeline came from the penalty spot.

First Dave Mooney was taken down from behind by Andy Frampton when through on goal. Frampton was surprisingly not booked for the challenge, but Deon Burton kept his nerve to fire his spot-kick into the top corner.

He claimed his second penalty of the game when Lloyd Sam was fouled by Nadjim Abdou after Mooney had struck the post. Abdou was given his marching orders and Burton sent Rob Elliott the wrong way.

The home side took the lead at the start of the second half through skipper Nicky Bailey, who volleyed past David Forde.

Dave Martin levelled the scores from close range before the unlucky Morison headed past his own goalkeeper from Grant Basey`s corner.

The Lions were not to be denied, though, and Schofield snatched them a point, smashing his shot past Elliott.
