Chris Powell: Hoping to bounce back

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."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
