NEIL Lennon wants points not plaudits after coming away empty-handed from Charlton last night.

While the Wanderers boss was pleased with many aspects of his side’s performance it was their lack of cutting edge that cost them at least a share of the points at The Valley.

The Whites had dominated before Romanian front man George Tucudean finished smartly on the half hour and when Addicks skipper Jonnie Jackson rounded off another excellent break just after the interval the points looked secure.

Lennon’s side hit back immediately through Dean Moxey – his first goal for the club – but then could not take advantage of their vastly-superior possession in the final 25 minutes to take anything back to the North West.

It left the manager nursing his first defeat and demanding improvement.

“I’m very frustrated because I think we dominated the game,” he said.

“We have got to get better in the final third. We had a lot of set pieces, I don’t know how many chances we had but there’s an anxiety about us in the final ball or the finish.

“In terms of performances, it was excellent.

“We dominated they got goals out of nothing, really. It is something we need to address but in terms of possession and football, channelling the game, I’m really angry we didn’t get anything out of it.”

Charlton boss Bob Peeters praised Wanderers’ football, which was a marked improvement on their last trip to the capital against Fulham.

Asked whether his side deserved a point, Lennon’s answer was unequivocal.

“Yeah, but we didn’t get one,” he snapped. “That’s why we are where we are.

“We have to change that and I’m not happy. Saying we played well and the football was great, we’ve come away with nothing and that needs to change.

“I’ve made it pretty clear to the players that we can’t have that amount of possession and chances and not come away with anything at all.

“That’s two games now and I’ve had a centre-back and a left-back score my goals.

“It gives me encouragement how we played and I’ve not had chance to work much on our forward play but we missed so many good chances.”
