Lee Bowyer believes Charlton’s playoff rivals wouldn’t want to play his team because they have “everything”.

The Addicks boss says the luxury of a full-strength squad at his disposal has come at the right time, with Charlton set to take on Doncaster Rovers in the playoffs.

With a convincing 4-0 win to round off the League One regular season, Charlton have topped the division’s form table and appear confident they can win promotion to the Championship.

Asked about how important it is to have strong, positive momentum heading into the playoffs, Bowyer said: “It's a good thing to have because, us as a team, the best habit to have is winning games.

“I know that any of the teams in the playoffs wouldn't have wanted to play us because we have everything - we work hard, we compete, we move the ball and we create a lot of chances.

“For me, we're in a good place. We've got a full squad and it's come at the right time because, when we've had a full squad, we don't lose many games.”

Charlton may have not secured automatic promotion but the strong finish to the season comes after an up-and-down campaign.

While the main target of automatic promotion wasn’t achieved, Bowyer is delighted with how his squad has responded in the face of adversity.

Now comes the task of overcoming Doncaster and booking a place in the playoff final, with the winner earning a spot in the Championship next season.

“We've had some difficult situations,” Bowyer added. “Our squad was very small at the start, like when we played Sunderland [on the first day of the season] we only had three or four on the bench and I think three of them hadn't even played a first team game before.

“Then there's been times when we've had a lot of injuries to key players at the same time.

“It's been difficult but we've all stuck together and just kept fighting, and now we're seeing the rewards.

“Eighty-eight points, in other seasons, would've taken you up automatically so we haven't done much wrong.

“We've lost two home games all season - one against Peterborough, a last-minute penalty which wasn't a penalty, and Coventry and we dominated that game for 80 minutes and they scored two goals on the break in the last 10 minutes and robbed it.

“They're the only two that we've lost at home.

“Like I said, this is a tough place to come [The Valley] and with our fans, who again didn't stop singing from start to finish, we've made this into a bit of a fortress.

“That's what I asked in the beginning, so I'm over the moon with where we are at the moment.”
