On 1 July 2015, Makienok joined Charlton Athletic on a one-year loan. He scored his first goal for the club in a 2–1 win over Hull City on 22 August 2015. He netted 5 goals in the course of the season, in which his Chartlon Athletic side were relegated from the Championship.

Preston North End

Following Makienok's spell at Chartlon Athletic, he joined Preston North End on loan, from 1 July 2016. He was the club's second summer signing, following the signing of goalkeeper Chris Maxwell. On 20 September 2016 he scored a hat-trick as Preston knocked Premier League side Bournemouth out of the EFL Cup.

On 15 October he came off the bench in the 79th minute to score his first league goal of the season, with a dramatic injury time equaliser as he latched on to Gallagher's pin point cross to head home, which stretched Preston's unbeaten run to five games after a slow start to the season.
