Charlton are maintaing their interest in Bradley Wright-Phillips but face continuing competition from Glasgow Rangers for the leading League 1 scorer who has netted 13 goals this season (one more than Johnnie Jackson).
It is now known that when Addicks supremo Chris Powell went to the MK Dons versus Argyle match last week one of his objectives was to talk to Pilgrims officials about the former Southampton hit man. Argyle are currently conducting a fire sale of players as they struggle to stay afloat. If they do not sell Wright-Phillips now they will get nothing for him in the summer when his contract expires.
The 25-year old failed a medical at Reading because of knee problems, but went to see a London specialist this week who cleared him of serious damage.
Chris Powell has emphasised that there will be no splashing out on new signings. 'We've got to a bit clever,' he said. So expect some loan signings.
For me the #1 priority remains a young and mobile central defender. Dailly has good positional sense, but he needs a different sort of player to partner him.
After yesterday's victory, Charlton have moved out of the relegation positions in the form table.
