Charlton lost ground on Watford at the top as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Barnsley.
The Addicks looked to have snatched all the points with just eight minutes remaining as Zheng Zhi headed home.
But Barnsley - themselves flying high in the top five - fought back and grabbed an equaliser in the final minute through Kim Christensen.
The Tykes could and should have won it in stoppage time but Grant McCann fired wide from point-blank range.

Another great performance by the lads in red meant the Addicks climed to second in the table, just 2 points behind Watford.
We dominated a match where Leicester really didn't pose any threat, and 2 casual goals, one from Varney getting his first goal for the club and one from Iwelumo meant the Addicks had secured 3 points as early as half time.
The second half wasn't too interesting and no real threat was posed from either team, but it was good to see us crusing and see a performance which, if continued, will win us the league!
An away trip this Saturday to ex-manager Iain Dowie's Coventry will be a tough challenge, but one we are fully capable of winning if we keep playing like we have been for the last too!
Up The Addicks!

Well, I had returned from my trip to the USA and as it was my first match back in the Valley and the first I would be seeing Charlton playing Championship football, I didn't know what to expect! BUT I was dead chuffed with what I did see!
So I took my seat, with the band and my drum, and saw a completely different Charlton squad emerge from the SE7 tunnel! It was good to see Luke Varney make his home debut after his injury he sustained in pre-season.
Charlton maintained dominance all match but never really managed to finish, with Andy Reid hitting the bar from a free kick, but narrowly missing a header. The referee seemed to miss around 3 blatent penalties due to Norwich fowls, but eventually after coming on 3 minutes earlier, Izael McLeod ran into the area and was felled by a yellow shirt. PENALTY!
Andy Reid could do nothing but score and blasted the Addicks into a 1-0 lead with 5 minutes to go! All fans thinking we had managed to win this were much relieved when 2 minutes later, McLeod was felled again at the edge of the area with the ref awarding a penalty once again. Reid stepped up and secured the points for us with a strike in the same direction sending the Addicks fans wild and the club up to 3rd in the Coca Cola Championship!
Seconds before the final whistle, Norwich's Dion Dublin let Danny Mills get the better of him and shoved him to the ground, causing referee J Singh to produce a straight Red.
It was all over and I was thoroughly relieved to have seen an awesome Charlton performance and 3 points in the bag. Oh and seeing Chrissy Powell do his tunnel jump again was amazing!James - Head Writer

So a new season, a new league, and new times at The Valley. A summer of changes, with Darren Bent and Luke Young the most prolific of our departures, meant a completely different looking team started yesterday's match in the Coca Cola Championship. This is only a brief report as I am not in the UK at the moment, but come September you will have full Match Reports when I return, with the passion I carry from watching the match first hand. Charlton were unable to start on a winning note after drawing 1-1 at home to Championship newcomers Scunthorpe. Marcus Bent put Charlton ahead on 62 minutes, but new signing Izzy Iriekpen levelled on 69 minutes. (skysports.com)
