Charlton’s Lyle Taylor says he isn’t looking at the top two but admits not all is lost in the race for automatic promotion.

The Addicks are six points adrift of Barnsley in second with Sunderland and Portsmouth sitting above Charlton ready to gate-crash the queue for the Championship.

The forward however believes the pressure may get to those above Lee Bowyer’s side, and if it does they will be ready to pounce.

“Pressure is horrible, it creates feelings of anxiety and anxiety creates mistakes,” he said.

“Hopefully those above us are feeling anxious now and we’ll see what happens.

“Stranger things have happened than coming from the doldrums to win a game or be promoted, so why won’t we see it with these?”

Taylor who scored his 19th goal of the season in the 2-0 win over Plymouth on Saturday conceded it may be out of their hands, but winning the remaining six fixtures is the aim for Charlton.

“Bows (Lee Bowyer) said if we had a really good week here who knows where we could be at the end of it.

“Six left, 18 points, If we do that then who knows.

“They’re going to have to look over their shoulder, as we’ll keep pushing them.

“If they slip up it’d be brilliant for us.

“We’ll keep pushing and pushing and as long as we do that we can look ourselves in the mirror and smile.”
