Charlton Athletic picked up an important three points in the race to win promotion into the Championship this term.
The Addicks took the lead after 31 minutes as Josh Scowen scored an own goal for the Black Cats. Charlton then doubled that lead just after the hour mark though as Alex Gilbey scored his first goal of the 2020/21 season.
Scowen then scored at the right end of the pitch with 13 minutes remaining of the match, as he made it a nervy finish for the Addicks.
But Nigel Adkins’ side held on to earn an important win that means they’re now sat seventh in the League One table, and are just a single point behind sixth-placed Lincoln City.
Are these facts about Charlton Athletic's badge true or false?
Gilbey was making his 18th appearance of the season for Charlton, and will be hoping he can continue to play his part in their bid for promotion.
The midfielder took to Twitter following the win at the Stadium of Light and expressed his delight at getting on the scoresheet.
