Charlton boss Alan Curbishley was full of praise for the Addicks after they secured their highest Premiership placing by beating Southampton.
"It meant so much to everybody to win at home. I know we moved up to seventh, but we haven't won as many games at The Valley as we'd have liked," he said.
"We keep saying this is a dream - the last six or so years have been a dream.
"And to come seventh, our highest position is fantastic. We don't get the credit we deserve."
He added: "People have said that we've fallen away again, but when you look at what we've achieved he in the past five seasons in the Premiership it's incredible.
"And we haven't had any help, we haven't had anyone come and chuck lots of money at us."
"There have been some unsung heroes this year - and there have been some great performances that the players should be proud of."
