The Addicks failed to hold on to a 1-0 half time lead at Bramall Lane today, eventually losing 3-1 to Sheffield United. Bouazza put the Addicks ahead with a 20-yard low drive on 33 minutes. The Addicks maintained their lead until 65 minutes when Quinn equalised and this was the first of three goals the Blades scored in a 15 minute spell.
Waghorn and Gray were relegated to the bench, although both came on late in the game. Burton started up front. Holland also started with Semedo not even on the bench. Elliott was preferred to Weaver in goal and Shelvey was an unused substitute.
Five Charlton players were booked: Bailey, Burton, Cranie, Hudson and McEveley.
Charlton are now firmly bottom of the table, four points behind Southampton. Doncaster and Forest both won, putting them five points clear of the Addicks.
