Daggers drawn

A friend of mine who supports Huddersfield e-mailed me this morning to say that the top of League 1 looked 'interesting'. Interesting for Huddersfield no doubt, but with Charlton in 12th place, their interest in the promotion contest is now limited.

Injury worries seem to be easing ahead of tomorrow's game. Anyinsah may have recovered, although I would expect him to start on the bench. Doherty looks like being available, although I think that Llera has acquitted himself well, not least in front of goal. Bessone has resumed full training this week. However, one of our key players, Johnnie Jackson, remains injured.

Dagenham and Redbridge always remind me of that humiliating FA Cup tie when we were in the Premiership with Salako saving our blushes. The Daggers are poised just above the drop zone and will be looking to extract maximum points from tomorrow's game.

Bad runs come to an end eventually, but I am not confident that this will happen for Charlton tomorrow. Drinking During the Game has suggested that draws are the new win and that is a possible outcome. However, I am going for 2-1 to the home side.

The focus now has to be on reconstruction over the summer.

For the last seven years the summer has meant DEconstruction for Charlton's squad, with a drop in league position the following season. Let's hope the team is strengthened this summer...but i'm not holding my breath.
