Charlton manager Johnnie Jackson knew that his answer was not what the press wanted when asked about their League One play-off prospects.

The Addicks extended their unbeaten run to four matches and made it three wins on the bounce with their 3-2 result over AFC Wimbledon yesterday.

It moved Charlton into the top half of the table but they are still 13 points behind sixth-placed Wycombe Wanderers.

Asked by the South London Press how he rated their chances of making a late assault on the top six, Jackson replied: “Boring for you guys….not good copy, I guess, but I just need to look at the next one.

“I might put my feet up for an hour tonight [Saturday] but then I’ll be up in the morning watching Bolton and worrying about that. Trying to plan how we can go there and get a win.

“I go into every game, I think you know by now, trying to win. That’s a given. I approach every game expecting to win – Bolton will be no different. And then we’ll see where it takes us.

“We’re a long way behind, aren’t we? We’re always going to be playing catch up and the problem is with every slip up it can be costly. We can’t afford too many more.

“We’re not going to win every game but if we can avoid runs of defeats then we give ourselves half a chance.

“It is literally one game at a time. Let’s get up to Bolton and see what we can do up there. And then before you know it we’ll be back on the road up to Wigan trying to do the same thing. That’s where I’m at.

“It’s a tough week coming up. It’s a tough league and the schedule is relentless. There are a lot of big games and big clubs in the league – Bolton obviously being one of them.

“A great test for us. A quick turnaround – recovery is paramount now. I said that to the lads: ‘Before you know it we’ll be on the bus on Monday heading up there – so we have to do the right things over the weekend’. Whoever is selected has to be ready to perform and I’ve got no doubt they will be ready.”
