The point saw the Lions' unbeaten run extended to 14 matches as they moved into fifth place in the Championship, keeping a fourth consecutive clean sheet in the process.

But Jackett felt something was missing from their performance, despite former Charlton midfielder Dany N'Guessan having his late goal-bound header stopped on the line as the home side controlled the second half.

"I thought it was a dominant performance, barring the finishing. In the second half, I don't think Charlton got out of their half," he said.

"I can't remember them having a shot, but it didn't quite drop for us in the box. Perhaps we needed a spark of creativity.

"I'm pleased with the players. A lot of our game was right and it gives me as a manager, good encouragement for the future."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
