Yann Kermorgant, who missed a play-off penalty when playing for Leicester in 2010, gave Charlton the lead after 19 minutes very much against the run of the game.

The home side huffed and puffed and they drew level in the 68th minute when Chris Wood stabbed home his eighth goal since joining the club in January.

Leicester looked the more likely to go on and claim the winner until Haynes scored completely out of the blue.

The 25-year-old had only been on the pitch two minutes when the ball dropped to him outside the area.

And, with the Leicester defense standing off, he spun on the spot and let rip with an unstoppable half-volley on his left foot that flew like a missile into the top corner.

"I was lucky enough to be in a position to get a strike off and fortunately enough it went in the top corner for me," Haynes told Charlton's website.

"It was a bit off-balance but I just made sure that I made good connection with the ball and let the rest do its work. It was my first touch.

"I just thought 'I have got to hit this'. It bounced up just right for me, on my weaker foot, but I just thought, 'why not? I'll have a go'."
