Manager Karl Robinson has said he was proud of the Charlton Athletic performance in Tuesday evening’s game against Oxford United.

Heading to the Kassam Stadium for the game, Charlton took the early lead through Tariqe Fosu-Henry but Oxford had levelled before the half time break and the game was largely balanced until the full time whistle, although arguably Charlton had the cleaner cut chances.

Speaking to the Official Site as he met with the media following the game, Robinson said he was proud of the entertaining performance and delighted with the point.

‘It was probably one of the best games I`ve watched this season. On the eye, that was as pleasing as you get. I thought we were the better team. They might say different, but we had six or seven really good chances – ones that we would normally take.’

Robinson went on to say.

‘We were as fluent, as classy and as strong as I`ve seen all season, against one of the best teams, away from home. I`m frustrated, but I`m so proud of my players tonight, I really am. We`re really pleased with our whole team performance today. We picked up where we left off Saturday and we`ve come here against a good team and performed with those levels so I`m really proud of the team,” he continued.’

He ended with praise for the travelling fans.

‘And for the fans who came, thank you for your support – all we could hear were our fans, not theirs, so it`s really pleasing. We could have made the game a lot easier for ourselves, but when human error takes over, I don`t become critical. I can`t ask any more from them tonight.’
