It was a crucial victory for Rovers and they edge closer to the play-off spots. They are three points off a top-six place.
Two goals within 8 minutes in the first half earned all three points for Tony Mowbray’s side who are now 8th in the table with 50 points on board.
Exciting youngster John Buckley opened the scoring with a deflected effort for Rovers in the 29th minute, and Tosin Adarabiyo doubled the lead before the break.
While Charlton improved after the break, Blackburn was equal to the task with keeper Christian Walton saving from Lyle Taylor and Josh Cullen.
Samuel, who has just returned from a bad injury, was brilliant once again. He attempted two shots, and made one key pass during the game.
