That is the essence of the message from Chris Powell as Charlton prepare for a difficult trip to the Fylde coast on Saturday: Powell
Blackpool are currently fourth in the table and will be expecting to pick up three easy points on Saturday. So far the Addicks have only lost matches by one goal, confirming a widely held view that we are just one or two players short of a fully competitive side, but facing the Seasiders away is a real challenge.
It is at times like this that I appreciate how difficult a football manager's job is. Do you play very defensively? But then we need more than a point and once you have gone 1-0 behind, what is the Plan B? Or do you go for attack, accepting a big defeat as the risk?
I don't have any answers, although I will be taking a closer look at the Tangerines tomorrow. My one recommendation would be to start Bradley Pritchard. He is fully committed, very energetic and can be a real nuisance to the opposition as he roams round the field.
832 tickets have been sold so far, so at least 1,000 Addicks could be enjoying the bracing winds off the Irish sea and possibly taking advantage of the very cheap accommodation. Among them is away reporter Paul May.
