Chris Powell: Saw Charlton pick up another useful point at Peterborough

Posh broke the deadlock at London Road through Danny Swanson, but saw Johnnie Jackson and Danny Haynes turn the game on its head.

Michael Bostwick restored parity in the 71st minute, ensuring that the spoils would be shared.

Powell feels his side offered more than enough to take something from the game and is pleased to have seen them edge further clear of the drop zone.

"I think a point apiece was about right overall," he said.

"We started well only to find ourselves behind, but then responded very well in the second half to get in front.

"We were well aware of the fact that Michael Bostwick has a good strike on him. It's something we spoke about beforehand but unfortunately we couldn't stop him unleashing one to get Peterborough level.

"Both teams had chances and both could have won it, but I'll settle for a point after a couple of poor results lately.

"We're only six points clear of the relegation zone so we can't afford to be complacent. That sort of gap can be wiped out very quickly so and we must continue to work hard."

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.
