Charlton’s season so far has been one of ups and downs.

Getting closer to the latter stages of the season, the Addicks find themselves in and around the play-offs with a few games in hand but a hard run-in with teams fighting for promotion and against relegation.

With a season of injuries to star players and Charlton’s weakness of conceding late goals, our league position could have been higher or even lower.

I for one believe that the future still looks bright for the Addicks and an extra three games to be played at the end of the season is still on the cards.

Some people won’t be happy with just the play-offs because a top-two finish did look achievable at the start of the season. But we need to look at the games coming up and the players we have in the side and the ones due back from injury.

Charlton’s first-half performance against Bradford was a joy to behold and excluding a fingertip save from Bradford’s goalkeeper to keep Mark Marshall’s curling effort out, we would have been two-nil up and cruising.

Karl Robinson’s side need to look at the way they played and make sure we can do this for 90 minutes. With recent results knocking us back, the confidence of the team could be low after letting a lead slip for the third game in a row.

Getting into the play-offs should still be seen as a major success given the lack of financial backing Robinson had in January. Any finish below sixth will see some fans come out in force with their pitch forks again – but we can’t have that. A lovely day out at Wembley and a play-off final win would be unforgettable.

We need to get behind the boys for the final 15 games of the season and make sure we give them our full support.

The boos aren’t going to help… so try to back the team on their way to promotion. Up the Addicks!
