Bailey leaves it late to deny Robins

06 February 2010 06:30
A last-gasp strike from skipper Nicky Bailey ensured Charlton secured a 1-1 draw at fellow promotion-hopefuls Swindon. Swindon were on the verge of a seventh consecutive home win in League One courtesy of Kevin Amankwaah's second-half goal. But the Addicks were not to be denied and highly-rated midfielder Bailey fired home in the second minute of time added on to deny Danny Wilson's side. Swindon bossed the first half and Addicks keeper Rob Elliot made a fine save to deny midfielder Jonathan Douglas before Gordon Greer's headed struck the bar. Jonjo Shelvey struck the woodwork at the other end with a vicious drive from long range. But it the Robins who deservedly broke the deadlock after 65 minutes when Jon-Paul McGovern's cross after a well worked short corner was flicked on for Amankwaah to slot home. Charlton pushed forward for an equaliser and it finally came right at the death when Bailey fired past David Lucas to silence the home supporters.
