The last goal of the game against Wimbledon came in the 60th minute, but that was far from the end of the action at the Valley.


With a lead of just one goal, the Addicks still had to make sure to keep the Dons at bay and after a nervy game, Jackson’ side did just that to run out 3-2 victors for a third consecutive win in League One.



Jackson explained that while the game must have been a joy to watch for a neutral, his own heart was in his mouth as the Addicks faced the Dons’ onslaught.


The Charlton manager desires that his side should not engage in open games like the one on Saturday from now on and he definitely does not want to see his team involved in edge-of-the-seat affairs.



“It was thrilling for someone who’s not quite as involved as me!”, Jackson said to CharltonTV post-match.


“My heart was going towards the end there because we hadn’t put the game out of sight.



“I don’t want games to be like that, as open as it was at times and end-to-end.


“We’ve come away on the right side of a five-goal thriller as you call it, but that’s not how I want it to be every week.”


In the last month, Charlton scored in two consecutive matches in extra-time, first to salvage a draw against Cheltenham Town and then to seal victory against Fleetwood Town, while their last two games have seen them defending one goal leads into the closing stages.
