Charlton snatch point in 4-4 thriller after 96th and 99th minute goals.. after Ipswich also scored twice in added time

IPSWICH struck twice in stoppage time to lead 4-2 but still blew victory at Charlton… in the 99th minute.

George Dobson capped one of the craziest climaxes ever by making it 4-4 – after just six minutes of stoppage time had been signalled.

Sam Morsy surely thought he had sealed victory when he made it 4-2 to the Tractor Boys in the fourth minute of time added on

The Addicks had themselves fought back from 2-0 down before their last-gasp recovery denied Ipswich top spot in League One.

Tractor Boys’ celebrity fan Ed Sheeran watched on as fans reacted wildly to Terell Thomas and Dobson striking deep into added time at The Valley.

But Charlton manager Ben Garner missed the touchline celebrations as he had been SENT OFF early in the second half.

A calm contest erupted once a fierce George Edmundson header put Ipswich in front three minutes into time added on in the first period.

Tyreece John-Jules then doubled the visitors’ lead when he beat Addicks keeper Joe Wollaccott to a cross from Wes Burns.

Furious Garner was ordered into the stands by referee Josh Smith for protesting too strongly over a Tractor Boys’ free-kick in the build-up.

But Charlton showed why they are pushing for a play-off spot with the first of their two double-goal comebacks.

Jesurun Rak-Sakyi pounced after Christian Walton parried Corey Blackett-Taylor’s strike.

And Walton spilled Blackett-Taylor’s shot for Albie Morgan to tuck home a leveller on 76 minutes.

Yet a frenetic second half stepped up several more gears in stoppage time.

Ipswich sub Freddie Ladapo drilled home from the edge of the box and Sam Morsy made it 4-2 from distance in the 94th minute.

That surely meant the Tractor Boys leapfrogging Plymouth at the head of the table… But, no!

Centre-back Thomas scrambled the Addicks back into it from five yards and three minutes later Dobson headed their point-saver.

One fan on Twitter posted: “I don’t know what to say. I’m in hospital visiting mum 2nil down manager sent off then hear it’s 2-2 …4 bloody 4.”

Another said “Hands up if you left at 4-2” and a third requested: “Dobson have my kids x”.
