Football News

Nicky Bailey snatched an injury-time equaliser to rescue a point for Charlton in a 1-1 draw with Swindon at the County Ground.

A cagey approach by both teams saw little action until the 13th minute when Jonathan Douglas hit a low shot only to see Rob Elliot make a superb save for a corner.

From the resulting set-piece, Gordon Greer's header came back off the bar as the home team dominated.

Charlton had to wait until the 40th minute for their first serious strike, Jonjo Shelvey hitting the bar from 25 yards with a thunderous shot.

Town opened the scoring after 65 minutes when Jon-Paul McGovern's cross from a short corner was flicked on and the unmarked Kevin Amankwaah stroked the ball home from eight yards.

Charlton raised their game somewhat after the goal but showed little sign of equalising despite more possession until Bailey fired past the exposed David Lucas.
