Charlton’s unbeaten start to the season ended with a 1-0 defeat by Birmingham last Saturday but the mood remains positive says Lee Bowyer.

Jude Bellingham strike for the Blues left the Addicks pointless but Bowyer revealed there is still a ‘feel-good’ factor around SE7 as they look ahead to Saturday’s trip to Wigan.

The defeat was Charlton’s first league defeat at home since October 6 last year when Coventry visited The Valley, and although disappointed with the loss, Bowyer wasn’t concerned with the manner of the loss.

“Nothing’s changed,” an upbeat Bowyer said.

“We are going to lose games, I know that, players know that.

“It’s how you lose them.

“Where we lost disappointed me, I didn’t want to lose at home, I wanted to keep that run going for another season.

“Obviously it’s going to be tough, every game is tough, but we created enough to not lose for sure, and on another day we could’ve won that game

“If they hadn’t competed or given 100% their mood and my mood changes, but that’s not the case.

“They lost 1-0 and created chances so if we lost and not created, got battered, then there’s something you got to look at.

“But that didn’t happen, our attitude was right, just we couldn’t put the ball in the back of the net, so there’s no negativity here, the lads are still in a good place.”

Currently sitting third, Charlton travel to Wigan in 21st on Saturday.
