Charlton Athletic captain Johnnie Jackson says the team will reimburse fans who travelled to see their 5-0 defeat at Huddersfield on Tuesday.

The London side, who are currently second from bottom in the Championship, also had striker Reza Ghoochannejhad sent off in the match.

Supporters forked out £23 for the privilege of watching their side capitulate in Yorkshire.

Jackson tweeted after the game: "I know words are cheap but on behalf of myself and the players,I want to apologise for tonight.It was disgraceful and you deserve better.

"We are going to reimburse fans who travelled up to support us.I will arrange this with the club + they will let you know how to be refunded."

Interim head coach Karel Fraeye did not speak to the media after their latest humiliation, coming just days after losing to League One strugglers Colchester in the FA Cup.

Goalkeeper Stephen Henderson said after the game: ""The lads are lower than they could ever have been in their careers.

"It is a position I have not been in before. Publicly I'd like to apologise to our travelling fans for that shocking performance."
