FULL TIME: Charlton Athletic 1 Blackburn Rovers 1
DICKSON Etuhu had given Blackburn Rovers the perfect start to life without Steve Kean but the East Lancashire outfit had to settle for a point at The Valley.
The Rovers midfielder fired the visitors into a 16th minute lead but Charlton levelled on 27 through Johnnie Jackson.
Eric Black was taking charge of first team affairs after Steve Kean quit as Rovers boss last night.
Charlton started the brighter of the two sides but it was Rovers who took the lead, after a flowing passing move on 16.
Jordan Rhodes passed the ball to Nuno Gomes who slipped it to the marauding Etuhu. The midfielder took one touch in the penalty area before firing the ball in at the near post.
Leon Cort then headed over for the hosts, with Salim Kerkar having earlier fired a low shot just inches past the post.
Charlton were level though on 26, after Rovers thought they had escaped through Paul Robinson's penalty save.
Jackson had his spot kick, after Leon Cort was controversially adjudged to have been pushed in the area, saved by Robinson's legs with the ball scrambled half clear.
But the Rovers stopper was left flailing at the subsequent cross from Lawrie Wilson and Danny Green's strike was turned in by Jackson's head from close range.
Green was then inches away from giving the hosts the lead, firing against the post from 18 yards and twisting his way through Rovers' defence.
Bradley Orr came to the visitors' rescue on 40, blocking Jackson's strike at the far post.
Charlton were almost ahead soon after the break as Robinson did well to claw Cort's header off the line, after Kerkar's corner had caused chaos.
The hosts again went close on the hour mark as Kerkar's free kick is headed goalwards by Michael Morrison only for Wright-Phillips to deflect it over.
Nuno Gomes then volleyed over the bar for Rovers and Rhodes headed wide from Jason Lowe's cross late on.
Robinson ensured Rovers kept hold of the point as he tipped Wright-Phillips' overhead kick over the bar.
