Bowyer and Pearce nominated for awards

Lee Bowyer has been short listed as Championship Manager of the Month and Jason Pearce as player of the month:

For those who regard such awards as unlucky, Bowyer is thought unlikely to get it, but it is a recognition of what he has achieved with a side which is largely not up to Championship standard.

Following Boro's win at the Toolbox, Charlton are just one point and one place above the relegation places.  Fortunately, Hull City lost at Bristol.

I wouldn't rely on Wigan's 12 point deduction as there has been an understandable outpouring of sympathy for their plight, although people are queueing up to take over.   Wigan Warriors rugby club must surely be favourites.

Why are so few people interested in Charlton?  Because it's a much more expensive buy than Wigan which may go for £10m.  

This Saturday's Relegation League fixtures see Hull at home to the Spanners.  Barnsley entertain Wigan while Huddersfield are at home to Luton.   Boro are at home to Bristol City and Stoke meet a weakening Birmingham City.   Three points against Reading are vital for Charlton.
