Charlton 2 – 3 Morecambe

Arthur Gnahoua’s brace helped Morecambe to a 3-2 win at Charlton, giving their Ligue 1 survival hopes a boost.

Cole Stockton scored his 26th goal of the season in the 23rd minute to send Morecambe ahead.

The striker produced a deft first time after excellent approach play that saw Greg Leigh and Dylan Connolly combine down the right to shape the open.

Gnahoua made it 2-0 three minutes before the break with a low shot past Craig MacGillivray after Charlton captain Jason Pearce only half cleared a looping cross from Rhys Bennett .

Jayden Stockley netted a goal for Charlton in the 53rd minute, finishing from close range after Mason Burstow nodded over Corey Blackett-Taylor’s cross.

But Gnahoua netted an excellent third for the Shrimpers, punishing MacGillivray’s poor throw.

Addicks substitute Chuks Aneke planted a firm header home from another left wing cross Blackett-Taylor to make it 3-2.

But Charlton hopes to salvage a point went missing when midfielder George Dobson exploded in stoppage time and Morecambe held on for a big result in their battle for survival.
