Bradley Pritchard: Can't put his finger on how they lost against Wednesday

The Addicks were 1-0 up with six minutes remaining and looking well on their way to a fourth straight league win.

But Reda Johnson's header levelled things up before new Owls striker Leroy Lita grabbed a late winner for the visitors.

"We were 1-0 up and doing well, keeping our shape, and I honestly couldn't see them scoring," said Pritchard.

"Maybe we got tired, a loss of concentration here and there and they capitalised. They play a certain way, they keep hammering at the door. It was really, really disappointing."

Pritchard played a key role in Charlton's opener, opting not to shoot from Chris Solly's cross but instead teeing up captain Johnnie Jackson for his seventh goal of the season.

"I think the way my shooting has been recently, I was probably playing the percentage game there," he admitted..

"Johnnie Jackson is in a good run of form and he always puts them away, so if he was in a better position I was just happy to be involved."

I

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.
