With 77 minutes gone, Shaun Whalley’s corner was turned past his own keeper by Red Dragons defender Neil Ashton and despite Charles being in close proximity, the centre half confirmed he hadn’t opened his Town account.

He said: “It was an own goal but players do claim goals that aren’t theres. If I was a forward, I’d probably try and claim it on the dubious goals panel.

“I saw Matty Robinson pull away and was like, hang on Matty, you didn’t score that.

“It was a good delivery by Shaun. Both our goals came from good set pieces. That’s an important part of any game, defending and attacking, you can get your goals from them.

“I think we needed to get the second goal and we did that, although we had quite a few opportunities to get it earlier.”
