Chris Solly admits he had doubts about the size of the squad

Charlton Athletic have been making a steady climb up the League One table under the guidance of Lee Bowyer.

The Valley outfit have managed to go unbeaten in their last six games, despite having won just once in their first five league meetings.

The Addicks picked up a point against Luton Town at Kenilworth Road on Saturday to extend their fine run, however, there were concerns at the start of the season if they would have the squad to mount a challenge.

Chris Solly, who netted the equaliser in the last minute and his first goal in six years, admitted to London News Online that he had doubts about the size of the team before the season kicked off but is pleased Bowyer has proved him wrong.

“I’m not going to lie, there was one or two worries,” the right-back said.

“Maybe leading up to the first game, we looked a little bit short. The Sunderland game we were short of numbers. Bows said all along to be fair from day one that once everyone was fit and he got the players he wanted in, we’d be right up there. He’s proving us right, isn’t he?”

The Verdict:

Charlton certainly showed signs that they may have had a difficult season once again in League One with their early form.

The Addicks went through a patch of mixed results and could not consistently put points on the board, however, Bowyer has turned things around.

However, the manager managed to add a couple of loan signings before the window closed in August and now they find themselves in the play-off spots following a six-game unbeaten streak, something they will look to continue when they travel to Scunthorpe on Tuesday night.
