In the end he goes from a cross-cum-shot and Pope claims. Disappointing.
Pato, with some nice quick feet, wins a free kick 30 yards from goal. The crowd cheer sarcastically - they're not happy with the ref. Not sure if Pato will have a go here - it's one of those borderline ones.
Bikey has just been described as a man mountain by Ash, sitting next to me, and that undersells him. I can't believe how good he's been today. If it wasn't for him I think we'd be leading by now.
I was about to write a little piece on Fryatt - his link-up play has got better as the game's gone on, and he's becoming more of a threat. Think he'll be given at least 80.
Wow - Tesche nearly does it again. The ball comes out to him from the corner and he unleashes an exocet missile, but some poor sod blocks it.
Antonio drives to the byline and wins a corner. We've not taken our foot off the gas.
A lovely back heel from Osborn plays Tesche in, but his cross is cleared. That was a good moment. Incidentally, Osborn has been very good again today. Yes, he's not a man who's going to win a game, but his use of the ball and workrate is invaluable.
I'd just like to remind you all of Tesche's celebration. Look out for that one later. It was quality.
We gift possession away to a breaking Charlton and Darlow's forced to save a low Cousins effort.
Someone did say to me recently though, he's been threatening a screamer for a while. There's been some close calls.
No Lincoln - he scored a header against Ipswich.
Thankfully that means the penalty appeals will be forgotten, and it gives us half an hour to get another.
It was a half-volley from 25 yards that rocketed into the top corner. Brilliant.
GET IN THERE! Tesche scores an absolute screamer, then celebrates with a somersault. How cool is our number 32?
Looked like one to me. Brilliant from Pato, incidentally.
Penalty? No! Pato spins his man in the box and is hauled down by Solly, but nothing's given. Nobody is happy, least of all Pearce.
True gaz, but at least we've done that now.
Antonio charges down a Charlton clearance and gets a huge roar. The City Ground is in fine voice. Pressure's mounting on the visitors.
Pearce is unmoved on the touchline, but it's definitely coming.
Yeahh... Oh no. So close, in fact, the closest we've come. Fox's cross for Fryatt goes through him and Bikey, and lands at the feet of Ince. He hits it towards the top corner from 12 yards, but it goes wide.
That was after Ince had hared down the right, round his full back, but was met by the rock that is Bikey. He's been exceptional today.
A great cross from Fox brushes the top of Fryatt's head. Another close call for Charlton.
True Terry, although when Charlton get it the tempo drops and there's little to write home about.
Antonio's doing a great job of taking down forward balls, and he does it again there, going on to fashion a chance for himself, but unusually, he passes and the chance is gone.
What a start to the half. I wouldn't put it down to the change, but we're really going at Charlton here, and looking a much better side.
So close! I'm almost out of my seat. Ince wriggles down the right, crosses, and Antonio so nearly turns it home.
And we're nearly back level. Antonio collects a Paterson clearance on his chest brilliantly, then destroys Ben Haim down the left. His cross is just missed by Fryatt, then the same combination nearly does it again. The City Ground gets louder.
Looks like we're staying at 4-4-2, with Antonio and Fryatt up top.
No idea if it's the knock he sustained when he was down, or as a precaution because he'd been booked. But we're back underway.
And I was wrong, Pearce does make a change at half-time. Lansbury off, Tesche on.
They've only conceded 19 all season - the same as top two Ipswich and Derby.
