Notts County   1 - 0   Charlton

Neal Bishop celebrates scoring for Notts County

Notts County 1-0 Charlton

Neal Bishop grabbed his first league goal of the season as Notts County overcame promotion-chasing Charlton.

Bishop scored in bizarre fashion just after half-time when Alan Gow's free-kick deflected off his backside and into Addicks keeper Rob Elliot's net.

Notts keeper Stuart Nelson then saved Bradley Wright-Phillips' penalty after Joe Ayinsah was fouled by Mike Edwards.

Craig Westcarr went close to doubling Notts' lead late on but his shot was tipped over by Elliot.

The Addicks' third defeat in a row leaves them two points off the play-off spots. But Chris Powell's men have three games in hand over sixth-placed MK Dons.

Notts are now eight points clear of relegation, having played fewer games than all of their League One rivals.

Paul Ince's men could have taken the lead early on, but Craig Westcarr was unable to connect with an inviting cross from on-loan debutant Karl Regan before going close again soon after when Elliot tipped his shot away from danger.

Addicks striker Joe Anyinsah then went close at the other end with an attempted lob as he was knocked over by Nelson, who was booked for his rash challenge.

Chances continued to appear for both sides on a boggy Meadow Lane pitch, with County's Alan Gow forcing Elliot into an excellent stop before the Scotsman fired just over the bar with a 20-yard volley.

On-loan Liverpool striker Nathan Ecclestone should have put Charlton ahead before half-time but Nelson rushed off his line to prevent him finding the net when one-on-one.

Notts grabbed what proved to be the decider soon after the restart. And, although Bishop's name is on the scoresheet, it could have just as easily been chalked down as an own goal after the ball deflected into the net off Addicks defender Simon Francis.

Charlton should have returned to London with a point after Ayinsah was clumsily knocked over by Edwards.

But Wright-Phillips wasted his chance to level with a weakly taken spot-kick, easily stopped by Nelson.

The dangerous-looking Westcarr could have killed the game at the death but his shot from just outside the area was expertly denied by Elliot.
