SIMON Grayson reckoned a point was the least City deserved after they fought back to frustrate play-off rivals Charlton.

Sub Tyrell Robinson’s 80th-minute header earned a 1-1 draw at the Valley in Grayson’s first game at the helm.

The new boss was delighted to get back in the swing of it after nearly four months out of the game since being sacked by Sunderland.

Grayson said: “It was different to what I’ve been doing on Tuesday nights for the last few months. I’ve either been at games or sat in front of the telly.

“There was a good reaction from the players and the point was the very least we deserved.

“First half, we tried to make sure we were a little bit harder to beat and contained them a little bit.

“They got a goal when they were on top but we crept back into it.

“We gave the ball away too easily but we stayed in the game and that’s something we’ve spoken about.

“I feel we’ll always get chances with the players we’ve got. We tweaked it at half-time and saw the reaction.”

City were well on top after the break and created several opportunities before Robinson, who had only been on the pitch four minutes, nodded in Charlie Wyke’s cross.

Grayson added: “The goal was coming for a long time, We had a couple cleared off the line and Macca (Tony McMahon) hit the bar.

“Even after the goal, there was only one team who were going to win it.

“We’re trying to instil that confidence back into them and it’s a good starting point.”
