Charlton boss Phil Parkinson admitted his side must improve defensively after Paul Benson netted a dramatic late winner in the 4-3 victory at Carlisle.

Parkinson's men found themselves 3-0 ahead just after half-time after goals from Johnnie Jackson, Joe Anyinsah and Benson. Carlisle levelled things up through Mike Grella, Craig Curran and Gary Madine - only for Benson to head home in the dying seconds.

"What a game. We were 3-0 up and coasting but you can never believe you have done it in football," said Parkinson.

"We need to work on clean sheets. We allowed too many balls into our box. We've got to tighten up and stop those crosses coming in.

"The highlight was our supporters. They were terrific and even at 3-3 they kept believing we would do it."
