HARRIOTT HITS GOLDEN GOALS.

Charlton 3 Watford 1 CHARLTON can enjoy the Golden Mile at Blackpool on Saturday after Callum Harriott's twin rockets launched them to safety.

The former England Under-19 winger has only scored two League goals all season - and he saved them both for the Addicks' hour of need.

Harriott's bullet from the edge of the box, midway through the first half, should have been the springboard towards survival for Charlton, who knew a win would guarantee Championship football next season.

But Watford skipper Troy Deeney's 24th goal of the season, a dipping volley, deservedly hauled his side level.

And the visitors, whose play-off hopes disappeared at the weekend, looked the likelier winners until Charlton captain Johnnie Jackson bundled his side back in front after 69 minutes. Harriott produced another sumptuous finish 13 minutes from time to get the party started for Charlton's final fixture at Blackpool.

Watford had winger Albert Riera sent off for a second bookable offence, an inevitable conclusion to his running battle with Lawrie Wilson.
