Guy Luzon's men came within inches of taking the lead when Tony Watt was brought down 25 yards from goal and a free kick was awarded. Johnnie Jackson took the set piece and powered a strike towards the net, but his effort cannoned off the crossbar and bounced over.
The Addicks took the lead in the 26th minute as Jackson played Watt through on goal and the striker slotted the ball past Mark Cousins, after his initial strike had been blocked.
Charlton doubled their lead just before the break when Karlan Ahearne-Grant netted his first goal for the club as Morgan Fox teed him up on the edge of the box, and his effort beat Cousins.
