Charlton midfielder Alex Gilbey says the Addicks will go about their business quietly and hope to sneak into the top six.

The South Londoners have won each of their last three League One encounters and are unbeaten in four but still sit 13 points shy of the play-off places.

There’s still 51 points up for grabs in Charlton’s final 17 games this season, starting with Tuesaday’s trip to Bolton Wanderers. The Trotters won 4-1 at The Valley earlier on in the campaign whilst the Addicks were still struggling under Nigel Adkins.

“I feel like we can go about it silently,” said Gilbey when asked if he still thought a top six finish was achievable.

“We can take care of business, go to Bolton and try and win there. Then we’ve got Wigan coming up. Two tough games but if we can take care of business and we’re the quiet one in the pack, hunting down, who knows what can happen.

“They’re a really good side, Bolton. We’ve got to go there and be a lot better than we were [against AFC Wimbledon]. But we owe them one for what they did here a few months ago. We all know that so we’re going there and trying to get three points off them.”

Saturday’s 3-2 triumph over the Wombles wasn’t straightforward as the Addicks had to come from behind before then responding once more when the visitors drew the game level at 2-2 before half-time. Diallang Jaiyesimi’s through ball to Conor Washington for Charlton’s second goal of the afternoon was a particular highlight.

“[Jaiyesimi] has already been speaking about it in the changing room for half-hour,” joked Gilbey.

“An outstanding pass. DJ’s got that – he’s a really talented player. Fair play to him and another good finish from Conor.

“It was good to get the three points. I think we started really slow, I thought we were really poor first-half. But we luckily got the three points and we can move onto Tuesday. I don’t think we were anywhere near our standards that we set ourselves. If you perform not to your standards and win, I think it’s a good sign. It’s a good three points and we can move on.”
