On the other end, new signing Kane found Jes Rak-Sakyi with a lovely chipped pass. The winger had good control, but Bradley Collins blocked his attempt.

The young winger was shown on to his left foot, but he made no mistake with a powerful finish that beat Collins at his near post.

Just after the hour mark, Charlton increased their advantage after Barnsley was unable to clear a dangerous Campbell cross, and Aaron Henry won a header on the outside of the opposition’s box. The ball dropped to Macauley Bonne, making his Addicks debut, who turned smartly and saw his low effort saved on the post by Collins. Rak-Sakyi received the rebound and passed into an empty net from seven yards out.
