Latics travelled down to London yesterday and picked up a creditable point, better finishing though and all three could have been in the bag, after the game both bosses, Owen Coyle and Chris Powell spoke to the media, let’s take a look at what they said:
Latics boss Owen Coyle – ‘You saw the chances but we need to be more ruthless,’
‘Credit to Charlton, but over the piece and with the clear opportunities we had we should be leaving with the three points.
‘But I’m not unduly worried. We’ve got good players. We’ve got to keep banging on the door and then there will be a flood.
‘A few things were said at half-time because in the first half we were below standard, and in the second half we were terrific.
‘You can’t fault the players’ energy, desire and what they’re bringing over the season. We will be where we need to be.’
‘Scott turned his ankle in the warm-up
‘There was a game abandoned on this pitch earlier this season because of the rain and maybe it’s a bit soft underneath.
‘We have tremendous faith in Lee but it’s a big ask to replace Scott Carson
‘He took his crosses very comfortably and had one terrific save to make from the header in the first half.
‘It speaks volumes for the kid that he had 25 minutes to get ready for a tough Championship game and acquitted himself in great fashion.’
Charlton boss Chris Powell – ‘We certainly had the better of the first half and Bradley had a gilt-edged chance. But I think the result was fair.
‘We knew they would come into it in the second half and they had chances and hit the bar.
‘But I have to remain positive, it’s another clean sheet after the troubles we had earlier in the season and it’s good for our confidence.’
