Chris Powell was delighted to see his Charlton's unbeaten run continue as they came away from Sheffield United with a 2-0 victory.
After an evenly-contested first-half, goals after the break from Yann Kermorgant and Bradley Wright-Phillips saw the Addicks maintain their lead at the top of the table.
Powell said: "It's an outstanding result for us and I'm delighted to have taken seven points from three games in seven days. I thought we grew into the game, especially in the second half."
He added: "Sheffield United have been doing well and they've got some good players. To score two goals and keep a clean sheet away at Sheffield United is a great achievement.
"I'm ever so pleased for them because I've been desperate for us to have a clean sheet I thought we deserved that bit of luck when they hit the woodwork at the end.
"We are under no illusions because there's a long, long way to go, but it will add to their belief and confidence. So far, so good."
Sheffield United manager Danny Wilson was disappointed to see his side fail to build on a promising start, during which Neill Collins had an effort cleared off the line by Johnnie Jackson.
Wilson said: "I'm obviously disappointed with the result. We had some good chances to score, particularly in the first half when we had our noses in front.
"It was a very close game and we had enough chances to win the game but we just didn't take them.
"I thought that there were two teams who were very capable of winning the game. We should have come out of the game with something but we can't complain. We've made three mistakes in the last two games and we've been punished every time."
