Charlton Athletic caused one of the upsets of the weekend as they defeated Leeds United 1-0 at The Valley on Saturday afternoon.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side needed a win for a chance to regain possession of the lead at the summit of the Championship table while the Addicks had lost their last two league outings against Wigan Athletic and Birmingham City.
Just after half an hour and against the run of play, the home side took the lead through striker Macauley Bonne.

The 23-year-old managed to scramble home the ball after United goalkeeper Kiko Casilla parried Tom Lockyer’s volley into the path of Bonne.
Charlton were able to hold on for the remaining hour to clinch all three points, moving them into the final playoff spot on offer.
Several of the Addicks faithful took to Twitter to share their thoughts following the match, and the recurring theme was the glowing praise given to Chelsea loanee Conor Gallagher.
One supporter claimed he had the potential to be a future Charlton captain whilst another added that he is a ‘star of the future.’
‘Absolute baller’ was another description given to the young midfielder as one more fan was left hoping that he never leaves the club.
Here’s the best of the reaction as Charlton fans hyped up Gallagher’s ability and further potential on Twitter…

Fantastic performance from #cafc today – put everything on the line for the points. Pratley, Solly, @BenPurrington , Sarr and @TomLockyer outstanding but for me Gallagher epitomised the work rate required at this level with a MOM performance

Gallagher MOTM IMO. Dogged and determined in midfield and showing a different side to him. 5 interceptions, 3 tackles and didn't stop running all game. #CAFC

Conor Gallagher roaring at the Covered End at the final whistle, walked around and applauded all home sides of the ground. He loves the Charlton. I don't want him to ever leave. #cafc

Conner Gallagher my second favourite Gallagher after Liam. He is a machine – star of the future. Noel is languishing in 3rd. #cafc
