Charlton player ratings: Conor Gallagher stands out as Addicks fall to Middlesbrough defeat

Published

on

Charlton fell to a 1-0 defeat against injury-hit Middlesbrough.

That results makes it eight games without a win for Lee Bowyer’s Addicks.

The Teessiders took the lead inside the first minute as George Saville slotted home from close range after a scuffed effort from Britt Assombalonga.

Charlton struggled to get a foothold in the game during a first half that was dominated by the home side, and in truth, they were fortunate to only be one goal down at the break.

Despite a rallying start to the second period from Lee Bowyer’s side, it was the home side who looked more likely to get a goal as they secured a much-needed win.

Here’s how we rated the Addicks at the Riverside Stadium.

Dillon Phillips – 6

Had little to do in the first half other than picking the ball out of net in the first minute. Made an excellent save in the second half to deny Ashley Fletcher.

Adam Matthews – 5

Constantly overrun on the flank. Added little to Charlton’s attacking play going forward.

Jason Pearce – 6

A powerful display once he settled into the game.

Deji Oshilaja – 6

Made a couple of crucial blocks to deny Middlesbrough in the area.

Ben Purrington – 5

Had a tough time against Djed Spence as he was constantly caught out by his pace and trickery.

Darren Pratley – 6

Had a solid game as he kept Marcus Tavernier quiet for long spells. Occasionally caught out by Hayden Coulson on the overlap, but generally solid.

Joe Ledley – 4

Looked to dictate Charlton’s play from deep but lacked quality on the ball. Taken off at the break.

Conor Gallagher – 6

Showed some neat touches and looked the most likely to make something happen for the visitors.

Alfie Doughty – 5

Looked bright but was never really able to penetrate the Middlesbrough defence.

Jonathan Leko – 6

Made some intelligent runs but was knocked off the ball far too easily, but was much more of a threat in the second half.

Macauley Bonne – 5

Didn’t do enough as he struggled to get a grip of the game.
