TROTTERS LACK PROMOTION CLASS
THERE was plenty of huff and puff, but little of the craft, guile and quality that sets automatic promotion hopefuls apart.
Bolton might have been expecting a routine victory, finding themselves in third going into a contest against a Charlton team languishing in mid-table.
But it was the Addicks who summoned the mix of fight and quality we associate with promotion chasers.
After reducing the gap to a play-off spot to just six points, boss Karl Robinson has delivered the swift impact the Addicks were looking for.
And with new signings Nathan Byrne and Jake Forster-Caskey making an immediate impact, on this evidence Addicks fans have every reason to be hopeful January can be a turning point for their team.
