The Addicks' seven-match unbeaten run came to an end when they went down 2-0 at Bolton last weekend.

Struggling Wednesday, by contrast, had lost seven on the spin until they grabbed a 1-0 win at Yorkshire rivals Barnsley.

But Powell is hoping for a repeat of Charlton's hard-fought 1-0 victory at Hillsborough almost 12 months ago on their way to the League One title.

"We've had a terrific run and now we've got to have another one," said Powell.

"In the Championship you have a spell where everything is going for you and then you'll have a spell where it doesn't, but we really need to get back on it in Sheffield.

"We can take heart from a good run that we had and a good result that we had at Sheffield last year. We'll be straight back on it and I'm sure my group of players will do that."

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
