Charlton will likely be happy to have picked up a point at home to West Brom considering injuries led them to deploy fringe players like Ben Dempsey and Alfie Doughty – who have both played less than ten Championship games in 2019/20 – but it was Josh Davison’s inclusion in attack that really paid off.
The 20-year-old scored his first goal for the club to cap off a wonderful story – a journey which took him from Enfield Town to join the Addicks last summer, and now a first professional goal.
Jason Euell praised the contribution and development the youngster has made, with fans also taking time to admire the achievement from the youngster.

With Lyle Taylor and Macauley Bonne both out injured Davison has played more recently, and his determination to work hard and succeed has been greatly appreciated by the fanbase, who have applauded his effort in return.
Played very very well. Gave two of the best centre half’s in the division a game and had them struggling throughout. Deserved the goal on the back of last three or four performances 👏👏

Eating my words about Josh Davison. Past judgements came from TV viewings so seeing him live gave a whole different perspective. The boy works hard and his hold up play was brilliant, may still not be ready to run a line on his own but he did marvelous today #CAFC

Nothing better than seeing the boys give absolutely everything for the badge today. Brilliant point.

It wasn’t just hard work that he displayed on Saturday, however, as he showed brilliant reflexes and striking instinct to head in an equaliser following Naby Sarr’s header across goal.
Nevertheless, he is still young and constantly looking to improve, and any positive contribution he make will likely be recognised by fans, as it was on this occasion.
Take a bow Josh Davison 👏 what a performance leading the line against top of the table West Brom 🔴
Only 20 and getting better every game. Unlucky when he hit crossbar last weekend. Great goal today. Strong and isolated at times SUPERB today @Joshdavisonn #cafc #charlton

Meanwhile, the performance of another youngster could mean that the club decides not to make a certain signing this month.
