Jonathan Obika scored a last-gasp winner as Charlton rounded off a miserable week for managerless Leeds with a 2-1 win at The Valley.
Neil Warnock's resignation in the wake of their Easter Monday defeat to Derby saw United travel under the caretaker pair of academy boss Neil Redfearn and former club captain Richard Naylor.
But neither could prevent the Whites from slipping to a fourth straight league defeat as they also extended their winless run on the road to 11 games.
Luke Varney cancelled out Johnnie Jackson's opener before substitute Obika stole it at the death as Charlton recorded their third win in five matches.
Yann Kermorgant tested Paddy Kenny with an acrobatic scissor kick but he held firm as the hosts began to find their feet in the final third.
Their best chance of the half fell to Dorian Dervite, whose low effort was beaten away by Kenny before Michael Morrison lifted the rebound over from close range.
Both sides looked better going forwards than defensively, and Leeds carved out an opportunity on the break as Morison played in Paul Green but the Republic of Ireland international could only fire over the top.
The deadlock was broken immediately after the restart when Andy Hughes, a former cult hero at Elland Road, saw his effort diverted in by Jackson for his 10th goal of the season.
As the visitors began to get on top, Redfearn introduced former Addick Varney into the fray and it paid dividends when the winger thundered in an equaliser nine minutes from time after Stephen Warnock's delivery was not cleared away.
Charlton protested there was a handball in the build up and were soon questioning Attwell again shortly after when Kermorgant went down inside the area under pressure from Whites skipper Lee Peltier.
Chris Solly saw his effort blocked as the hosts pushed forward for a late winner and they reaped the rewards in the sixth minute of added time when Obika headed home a Rhoys Wiggins cross.
