Town midfielder Andrew Shinnie delivered a performance described as 'virtuoso' by the Charlton Athletic official website, as he bagged a goal and an assist during the Addicks 2-0 League One win over Oxford United last night.

Home boss Lee Bowyer made four changes from the side that beat Northampton Town on Saturday, which included recalling Shinnie to the side.

It paid dividends on 32 minutes as Shinnie was found by Chris Gunter, before turning away from his marker and playing a clever through ball for Connor Washington, who fired through the legs of Oxford keeper Simon Eastwood.

Shinnie then made it 2-0 in first half stoppage time when his long range free kick somehow beat Eastwood and flew into the net, the midfielder netting his first goal since arriving at the Valley on transfer deadline day.

After the break, Charlton were reduced 10 men when ex-Town defender Ryan Innis was dismissed in the 66th minute for his second bookable offence.

The Addicks held on though to make it four wins in a row and climb into the play-off places.

Defender Peter Kioso had 90 minutes as Bolton Wanderers beat Bradford City 1-0 at the University of Bolton Stadium in League Two.

The right back looked lively early on, setting up Andrew Tutte whose 20-yard effort flew over, with ex-Town centre half Alex Baptiste seeing his powerful volley charged down.

Nathan Delfouneso then broke the deadlock on 13 minutes, powering an effort home from just inside the Bantams box.

After the break, Kioso deflected Connor Wood’s shot away from danger, before keeper Billy Crellin made a superb stop to deny Billy Clarke from the penalty spot as the Trotters held on for a welcome three points.
