Ashley Barnes finds the net to send Burnley into half time with a 1-0 lead over Charlton Athletic.

Charlton Athletic are trailing to an Ashley Barnes header at half time in their Championship clash with promotion-chasing Burnley.

Both sides had their share of possession in the early stages, but the struggling Addicts were first to threaten as Jonathan Obika came within inches of reaching Simon Church's cutback in front of goal.

The hosts almost took the lead in the 25th minute when Church latched onto a stray pass and bore down on goal, testing Burnley goalkeeper Tom Heaton with a stinging strike.

A forgettable first half had suddenly come to life, and the deadlock was broken seven minutes before the interval as Barnes headed home Junior Stanislas's cross to make it 1-0 to Burnley at half time.
