Fans indicated that the club created a handful of chances but Bonne who only had two shots failed to convert them.
Some posted on Twitter to express their anger on the 24-year-old Zimbabwean forward who has been linked with a move to Queens Park Rangers, Swansea and Preston.
Football League World quoted Twitter posts by angry fans as follows:

I thought Macauley Bonne had another poor game as well. He’s not pulling his weight.
Clearly has the ability because he shows glimpses of it at times, but lacks consistency!
He’s not reliable as it stands.
Just looks too complacent, doesn’t chase much, seems to wait for them to come to him.
I like the guy and want him to do well, but he’s just been so disappointing for a while now.
Motivation for some players seems to be an issue . . . with transfer talk to bigger clubs . . . needs new signings urgent . . .
Needs to stop thinking about QPR.
He wants to go, heads been turned. Matthews in, another centre back to replace Deji, sell Bonne, find a striker that looks interested. Bonne wants to go, it’s obvious.’
Interestingly, Bonne was a hit in his debut season for the Addicks. Charlton Athletic were relegated from the Championship after being beaten by champions Leeds United at Elland Road on the final day of the season.
