Charlton are fighting for a play-off place with 13 games to go.

The Addicks are just two points from sixth-placed Plymouth, but have been rocked by injuries to Ahmed Kashi and Jay Dasilva.

It’s been the story of Charlton’s season - injuries have hampered their promotion push since the opening day of the campaign.

And Valley manager Karl Robinson hopes the hard work from his staff and players pays off with promotion in May.

Here is every word of his rallying cry:

We’ve worked very hard to get ourselves in this position, we’re a few points off the play-offs with two games in hand. With all the rubbish that’s gone on this year in relation to the injuries, it’s quite remarkable that we’ve put ourselves in a position to be competitive.

All of the things I’ve done as a manager, this has been as hard a 12 months as I’ve gone through.

I want to give [player-coach] Johnnie Jackson and [assistant manager] Lee Bowyer a special mention because they've been unbelievable. Don't forget, you've got Lee Bowyer who’s never done this before and Johnnie Jackson who’s in a new role. These two people have been thrown into the deep end with some of the worst luck we've had [with injuries] in a long time.

You've got [head of medical services] Alastair Thrush, [sports scientist] Josh Hornby, [physiotherapist] Adam Coe, [strength and conditioning coach] Ian Jones [assistant therapist] Steve Jackson, Lee Turner our goalkeeping coach and Chris Jones our club doctor. It’s important I mention these people. They've been absolutely brilliant. They've had this hard as well. I want to mention how important they are and I want people to understand how hard these people have worked to drive us forward.

That goes through Lianne at reception, [player liaison officer] Tracey Leaburn, [club secretary] Chris Parkes and Brett Shaw our analyst. Also, Steve Gallen on the recruitment side. They have worked so hard. They've all been unbelievable. I hope we get the success these people deserve.

Fans will be frustrated with results. What we speak to you about, I’ve never ever, ever, not taken responsibility when I think we've done something wrong. At this moment in time, it [the injuries] is out of my control, it’s out of my staff’s control but we do have control over the players that are fit.

We’re going to need the fans to get behind them. We’re going to lose some games and we’re going to have poor performances. But at this moment in time, we can’t let this [injuries] affect us.

We’ve got to make sure we stay on the front foot. I’ll try to do the best I can. The takeover is not far away, there are so many things going on.

Walking into this football club over 12 months ago, it was all over the place. We sit here in a much healthier position. We were worried about relegation this time last year, now we’re talking about competing to get out of the league and we’re in the midst of a takeover.

So, over £10m in player sales, and we’re in a very, very good position. Our squad is young and fresh, it will get better. It’s a better team than 12 months ago.

We are giving everything we possibly have. And I know the players are doing the exact same thing as well.
