Chris Powell: Felt Charlton should not have left the Reebok empty handed

David Ngog climbed off the bench to net a second-half double for Wanderers, with Powell's side dropping back to 14th in the Championship table.

Powell was left to reflect on his side's failure to convert a number of chances, and he insisted the Addicks should not have left the Reebok Stadium empty handed.

"We were disappointed because we grew into the game and created the better chances," he said. "Bolton have obviously come down from the Premier League and that always makes it a difficult game.

"We are good away from home and we got the right balance between attack and defence throughout today.

"In the end, though, we were beaten by a substitute who has a huge pedigree in the game and he has made a huge difference.

"I'm sitting here thinking that we should have won that game but we'll be looking to go into the Christmas period trying to bounce back from a defeat which shouldn't have happened."

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
