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."

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...
