Charlton: Green disappointed with Blackburn draw

Danny Green said he thought Charlton should have picked up all three points in Saturday's clash with Blackburn Rovers at The Valley.

The Addicks went behind to a Dickson Etuhu goal before Johnnie Jackson headed home a first-half equaliser just seconds after missing from the penalty spot.

However, despite a number of chances the south-east Londoners weren't able to get a second, leaving winger Green and his teammates disappointed.

"We dominated possession and should have won the game," said Green.

"When the penalty was saved I just thought 'here we go again, our luck's not in'. Last season we had all the luck but this season with injuries and the odd things it hasn't gone for us.

"But Jacko recovered and took his goal really well.

"Blackburn have got great players such as Pedersen and Jordan Rhodes but overall we should have won."

The big talking point was Steve Kean quitting as Blackburn boss the night before the game. However, Green said it made little difference to the preparation.

Howver, he did admit the loss of Charlton striker Ricardo Fuller to a virus on the morning of the match had an impact.

"We approached the game as if (Kean) was still manager," said Green.

"Some of the boys only found out he had gone once they got to the ground. Obviously it wasn't great prepreation for them but we went into it the same as we'd planned all week. It turned out it was the team we expected.

"However, Ricardo came in today and wasn't very well. He had diarrhoea and sickness so the gaffer just sent him home.

"We missed his presence. Although Bradley Wright-Phillips did well, it's never easy up front on your own."

Meanwhile, Charlton made two loan signings ahead of Tuesday night's home clash with Watford.

Midfielder Abdul Razak joined from Manchester City on Tuesday and QPR forward Rob Hulse completed a deal on Monday morning.

Both signed three month contracts with the Championship side.
