Jermaine Beckford scored the game's only goal after 11 minutes, and with Charlton defender Dorian Dervite sent off early in the second half, Powell's men struggled to create chances.

Powell, evidently furious at his side's elimination from the Cup, said: "To say I'm frustrated is the understatement of the year.

"I'm not enamoured with what happened today. I know we went down to ten men but we went out with a whimper.

"It was a poor goal for us to concede and it gave us a mountain to climb. I'm not happy with the way it has panned out.

"I put in a few players to give them a chance to show they're ready to play a part in our season and also it's the cup and I really wanted us to be in the fourth round.

"I know we didn't have as many fans as we usually do but we wanted to perform. Huddersfield are on a bad run but we really didn't get a foothold in the game.

"We showed last week at Watford what we can do when we get in good positions and create chances, but we never really did that today. We've been okay away but not done enough in front of our fans. I want us to be better at that in 2013 and it starts next week at home to Blackpool."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
