Opening the scoring, it was an excellent run from Burstow who displayed an excellent turn of pace to latch onto Albie Morgan’s through ball before slotting in with 15 minutes on the clock. 

Burstow netted what was his third goal of the season at senior level with Charlton, making it two in the Papa John’s Trophy with the other coming in the FA Cup. 

The 18-year-old has also been handed his League One debut under Jackson, coming in on in two of the last three matches.
