TODD Kane admitted his motivation to get forward and score was driven by a costly error at the other end in his eventful debut at the Valley.

The full back sparked Oxford United’s memorable finale with a smart finish to make it 2-2 in the 89th minute.

It paved the way for Ryan Ledson to seal a famous win, but Kane felt responsible for the U’s being behind in the first place.

Having drawn level through James Henry 14 minutes from time, the Addicks re-took the lead with an attack virtually from kick-off.

Kane was robbed by Jay Dasilva – both players on loan from Chelsea – and crossed for Josh Magennis to score.

The deadline day signing said: “I felt that I needed to do something to get the supporters back on my side.

“We made a couple of errors, including myself. I hold my hands up for that.

“Then I played the ball to Isaac (Buckley-Ricketts) and he hit the post – I was gutted because I thought that was our big chance.

“Then when the ball came into the box I thought ‘I’m going for this one’ and luckily it went in.

“I’m happy it did because I needed to do something to take the weight off my shoulders.

“It was great for myself and the supporters.

“I just wanted to show my enthusiasm and my passion. I’m really happy with the response they gave me.”
