Charlton finally gave home fans something to smile about as they won 3-1 over Sheffield Wednesday.
The Addicks ended a dismal run of form at The Valley with Johnnie Jackson, Simon Makienok and Reza Ghoochanne getting on the score sheet.
The south-east London side kept a clean sheet until the 73-minute, when Fernando Forestieri netted a consolation goal for the Owls.
Charlton interim head coach Karel Fraeye’s called the result a “massive” three points.
“Everyone said we had no chance,” he told Charlton FC’s website .
“Sheffield Wednesday had not been beaten in 11 games and we were on a poor run without scoring for a long time.
“From the outside, the perception to our team, our quality and our staff was very negative.
“But inside, we always believed that we had the quality.”

Fraeye also praised the role of the fans at The Valley for boosting his side’s morale.
But he refused to be swayed on whether the three points would prompt him to put pen to paper should a deal be offered as Charlton’s permanent manager.
He said: “As I’ve said before, my position is not important.”
