The Addicks are back in the second tier after a two-year absence and face a tough trip to Birmingham on the opening day.

Powell said: "This is what we've always aspired to. This time last year our aim was to go in the Championship and pit our wits against these teams as we feel we should rightfully be among them.

"So we can go out and really impose ourselves and approach each game the right way, as we did last year."
