Last Updated: 26/12/18 6:59pm
Coventry City put an end to their winless run with a 2-1 win over play-off chasing Charlton.
Jordy Hiwula's first-half header had put the hosts in front before Darren Pratley equalised after the break. But Tom Bayliss fired past Jed Steer to claim City's first win in nine games.
Dujon Sterling had to make a brilliant goal-saving tackle in the 23rd minute when Nicky Ajose was played through, before Conor Chaplin blasted a free-kick straight at Steer after Patrick Bauer was booked.
Charlton went close six minutes before the break but Lee Burge saved well from Lyle Taylor's shot. And City took the lead two minutes later when Hiwula headed past Steer.
Brandon Mason and Krystian Bielik were booked soon after the restart before Pratley levelled the match after 58 minutes when he headed in Bauer's flick-on.
They went close again but Burge gathered Karlan Grant's low cross after Mark Marshall found a way into the box. And it was City who took the spoils two minutes from time when Bayliss fired past Steer.
