Noel Hunt grabbed a debut goal in stoppage time as Ipswich snatched a dramatic 1-0 Sky Bet Championship win at Charlton.
The striker, who only joined Town on loan from Leeds 48 hours earlier, came on as an 83rd-minute substitute and struck the winner with the last kick of the match.
The goal condemned Charlton to a first home defeat of the season and cemented Ipswich's place in the play-off spots. Such an outcome had looked unlikely in a game of few chances between two sides more prone to drawing than winning so far this season.
Ipswich manager Mick McCarthy and assistant Terry Connor have extended their stays at Portman Road.
