Charlton Athletic 3-2 Wycombe Wanderers

Lee Bowyer's reign as permanent head coach of Charlton got off to the perfect start with victory over Wycombe.

Gareth Ainsworth's side took the lead when Randell Williams cut inside to place a lovely shot past Charlton keeper Jed Steer.

But, for all their early possession, the Chairboys gifted the Addicks an equaliser 30 minutes later when Lewis Page's cross was deflected into his own net by Sido Coelho Jombati.

Charlton nearly went ahead prior to half-time but Karlan Grant's close-range effort was denied by Ryan Allsop before Lyle Taylor's overhead kick just shaded the crossbar.

Following the break, the Addicks took the lead when Patrick Bauer stretched to find Taylor, who could not miss from the goal line.

Naby Sarr then doubled Charlton's lead nine minutes later after he poked the ball home from Ben Reeves' free-kick.

Substitute Paris Cowan-Hall's header in added time gave Bowyer's side a few late nerves but the Addicks held on to claim all three points.
