According to Pravda Nicky Bailey's future and a possible move to Middlesbrough is on hold while the long-running Charlton takeover saga drags on:
Phil Parkinson has praised Izale McLeod's attiude since he has returned to training, saying that bhe is fighting for his Charlton career. Perhaps he has now found his level.
The Addicks supremo struck a slightlhy exasperated tone when he said that he needed five more players to make a credible push for promotion. In particular he pointed out that he had only centre back signed up with the future of Jon Fortune still unresolved.
