Charlton manager Karl Robinson insists he’s calm despite the club’s poor run of form - and wants fans to stick with his players.

The Addicks lost 2-0 to promotion rivals Blackburn today which was their third reverse in four league games.

They are ahead of seventh-placed Portsmouth on goal difference.

Robinson said: “We’ve conceded an own goal for the second time in a week and conceded the second when we were completely open.

“I think it’s hard to pick a bad player today. We’ve looked good. I need people to help my players, we’re going through a little dip. It’s the longest [dressing room talk] we've ever done.

“We've just had a conversation about how close we are together and we can criticise each other internally.

“We know results haven't been good. I’m not hiding anything from you. We feel we deserve more than we’re getting. We’re going to need the support and ourselves to work hard.

“My players need to get together, the fans need to get together. Everyone sees the players are working hard, it’s just the results aren't what they need to be.

“I want people to stay with my players. I’ll stay with them. I love them to death. I love being part of this group and I love being part of achieving something. We‘re still going to achieve what we’ve got to achieve.

“We all go through these moments, I’m still very calm. You've seen us play different systems in the last few weeks, we’ve gone a little bit more direct.

“We’ve changed our style in certain games, we’re really mixing it up and becoming more of a rounded team. But results haven't supported that unfortunately.”
