The Addicks were 1-0 up with six minutes remaining and looking well on their way to a fourth straight league win.

But Reda Johnson's header levelled things up before new Owls striker Leroy Lita grabbed a late winner for the visitors.

"We were 1-0 up and doing well, keeping our shape, and I honestly couldn't see them scoring," said Pritchard.

"Maybe we got tired, a loss of concentration here and there and they capitalised. They play a certain way, they keep hammering at the door. It was really, really disappointing."

Pritchard played a key role in Charlton's opener, opting not to shoot from Chris Solly's cross but instead teeing up captain Johnnie Jackson for his seventh goal of the season.

"I think the way my shooting has been recently, I was probably playing the percentage game there," he admitted..

"Johnnie Jackson is in a good run of form and he always puts them away, so if he was in a better position I was just happy to be involved."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
