Post-Match: Lennon on Bolton's Defeat at Charlton

Neil Lennon was left frustrated, after his Bolton side failed to convert their dominance into goals - as they were beaten 2-1 at Charlton Athletic.

Strikes either side of the break from George Tucudean and Johnnie Jackson gave the Addicks victory in Tuesday's Championship clash at The Valley, while Dean Moxey's second-half consolation was all Wanderers had to show for their efforts.

After watching on from the sidelines as his side produced arguably their best display of the season, Lennon admitted work is still required on converting possession into goals - as well as cutting out defensive mistakes.

"We should have got something, but 'should' doesn't cut it," Lennon told Sky Sports.

"The reaction to going a goal down and two goals down was good, but it would be nice to stop going two goals down.

"The structure, the passing, the movement was excellent, it was just the last bit that was missing. We need to do a bit of work.

"We are where we are because we don't score enough and we concede too many. That was evident tonight.

"But the standard of performance was very high. We are a totally different animal now, but we are still losing games."
