With your advent calendars opened this morning, we've decided to give you a Charlton related run-down in to he New Year.

Dillon Phillips

Dillon Phillips was the number one choice at the start of the season.

Having served the majority of last season as understudy to Ben Amos, the keeper would’ve surely eyed the 2018/19 campaign as a chance to cement his place between he sticks with Amos heading back to his parent club, Bolton.

The arrival of Jed Steer on a season-long loan from Aston Villa soon put a halt to that, giving the young keeper a case of deja-vu.

He did manage six league games before the Villa shot stopper came to The Valley, keeping one clean sheet in the process - a goalless draw at home to Fleetwood.

It now seems the cup competitions hold the only realistic first team action the 23-year-old will have this season.

In his last outing, the 5-0 FA Cup second round replay with Mansfield he put in a fine display letting Lee Bowyer and Johnnie Jackson that he is more than capable.

The score-line flattered The Addicks and that was partly due to Phillips. He produced a string of superb saves, notably a fine stop to deny Danny Rose when the score was level.

He will no doubt be disappointed with his lack of game time after a promising start, but Bowyer will know that in Dillon Phillips they have sturdy number two and a cup keeper who is looking to impress.

Ashley Maynard-Brewer

Another notable mention should go to 19year-old Ashley Maynard-Brewer who made his first team debut in the 1-0 Checkatrade Trophy defeat to Swansea U21.

The Charlton Academy graduate arrived at the club in 2017 after moving to Australia from St Albans as one-year-old.
