Chris Powell: Played down talk of Charlton making the play-offs

Athletic are now just two wins off a top-six place but Powell has played down suggestions their late run of form could see them in with a shot at promotion.

"No (we aren't talking about the play-offs), we might take just one more point," he said.

"The way the fixtures are, we might be safe, but we are going to push on. The real question is can we keep this going for the final four games?

"I just want to savour the moment want to live and savour it with them - the team, the fans it's a great day for us.

"I'm really proud of them today. We go about our business quietly and effectively, but days like this won't come around too often.

"It was one of the best. I won't say the best. To score six on the road - it's up there in my top three."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
