Charlton 1-2 Sheff Wed

Sheffield Wednesday struck twice in three minutes to seal their first away win of the season at Charlton Athletic.

Charlton took the lead after 20 minutes when Luke Varney scored from eight yards after Wednesday failed to clear Nicky Bailey's free kick.

Varney and Linvoy Primus struck the woodwork for Charlton before Wade Small's solo effort put Wednesday level after 38 minutes.

Marcus Tudgay then pounced on slack defending to score from 18 yards.

Charlton boss Alan Pardew:
"It's almost a step forward and then a step backwards at the moment.

"But we had a few low performances and I'll have to look at the selection of the side because there are one or two who are desperate to have a go now.

"I've got three or four players who are champing at the bit to play. I've stuck with the core of this side but they're coming up a bit inconsistent."

Sheffield Wednesday boss Brian Laws:
"There are always moments within games that change them.

"Charlton went at us early, hit the post twice and we rode our luck.

"But credit to my players, they dug in deep after taking the lead and that will give them a real confidence-boost leading to their next home game."
