Charlton manager Phil Parkinson was satisfied with a point after his side drew 1-1 with Oldham.

Dean Furman's 25 yard rocket on the stroke of half-time cancelled out Scott Wagstaff's 24th-minute strike for the Addicks before Oldham had Jason Jarrett sent off for a second yellow late on, with Jarrett appearing to throw the ball at Parkinson on his way off the pitch.

"Oldham are a good side, their two wins were certainly not lucky and they will upset a lot of teams this year," said Parkinson. "They are the best team we've faced so far."

He added: "It was a bit frantic in the second half but it was full of commitment and we'll take the point and move on.

"The lad has got sent off and he can't really argue with it. They were disappointed that we appealed for the foul but any bench would have done the same."

Oldham boss Paul Dickov said: ``The red card was a bit frustrating - I've seen it again and spoken to referee.

"It wasn't a second yellow, in fact we didn't even think it was a foul.

"But the ref has made an honest decision, he gave what he saw at the time and it was unfortunate for us, but you get on with it.

"Reid had caught Jason's back foot, Jason wasn't even looking at him, but ref saw it at match speed and had to make a decision.

"Jason's reaction was just one of frustration, but he's been fantastic for us."
