Lee Bowyer hailed his side as ‘outstanding’ after their 2-1 win over Plymouth on Saturday but believes there is a lot more to come from his men.

A late Karlan Grant goal gave the Addicks the victory they deserved and moved them into sixth in League One.

Charlton have now won their last four league games but Bowyer is adamant they can improve.

“I expect more,” said Bowyer.

“I see them every day, it’s my job to persuade them how good they are. They don’t realise how good they are.

“We haven’t got a massive squad, but they’re all good, they bring something different. We’re in a good place.”

Charlton’s on-field performances are a far-cry away from the much documented off-field issues surrounding the club, and Bowyer believes his team could be higher up the league but for some bad luck.

“I like to think we are already competing with these teams, we went to Sunderland with bare bones and outplayed them.

“We lost, but that’s football.

“We battered Peterborough here [at home] and they scored a late goal, so I like to think we’re competing already.

“I think we are better, I see it every day. We keep the ball. I’ve not seen any other team do that.

“We play, compete, fight, and the togetherness it’s unique, you don’t get this at every club.

“I believe in them, and now they’re starting to believe in themselves.”

Bowyer was eager to praise the continued support from the Charlton fans and that if his players continue to give 100 percent they will be happy.

“Since I took over the most important thing was to get the fans on board.  We did that by getting to the play-offs, and now we’ve just maintained that.

“All fans want is for you to give 100 percent effort every time you step on the pitch.

“Anything after that is a bonus.”

Charlton travel to 12th-placed Luton on Saturday hoping to make it six league games unbeaten.
