Lee Bowyer hasn’t given up hopes of gate-crashing the top two finish after his side’s 2-0 win at Plymouth.

Goals from Lyle Taylor and a Neil Canavan own goal gave the Addicks three points in a game they were second best for large periods.

Dillon Phillips penalty save on 39 minutes was the turning point as not long after he saved Graham Carey’s spot-kick Charlton took the lead they never relinquished as they go within six points of second place with six games left to play.

“If we can win all six, then we’ve got a chance of being in and around that top two, I honestly believe it,” said Bowyer.

“The teams in front of us are going to make mistakes and we’ve just got to keep winning and be there in case they slip up.

“It’s been good, but there’s still a long way to go for me.

“Sunderland have a hard run-in and have Saturday/Tuesdays until the end of the season which will be tough.

“It’s Barnsley’s to give it away and I believe that if we win all six games, we won’t be far off.

“If the teams above us want to give us a chance, then we need to be there to grab it.”

News Shopper:

Bowyer hailed Academy graduate Phillips for his game changing save.

“As soon as Dillon made the save, it was a bit of a wake-up call.

“We then started doing what we are good at and then we started dominating the game.

“I think from the penalty save onwards, we were the better side.”

News Shopper:

The manager admitted Plymouth dominated long periods of the first half but praised his side’s flexibility as they turned the tide with Taylor’s 19th strike of the season.

“We obviously had to change things shape-wise because they were causing us damage. “So I had to change that and, once we did, I think we were comfortable and deserved to win.

“We’ve got players that can hurt you.

“It was great movement from Lyle for his goal and a great ball from Solly. Then Jonny Williams was exceptional down the left for the second.”
