Lee Bowyer says his ‘dressing room full of winners’ will be determined to bounce back to winning ways when Charlton face Coventry City at The Valley on Saturday afternoon (3pm).
The Addicks suffered a shock defeat against Scunthorpe United in midweek – their first league reverse in seven games – and the Manager is backing his team to get back on track straight away.
Bowyer's full interview will be on Valley Pass later today.
“Saturday is massive,” the boss said. “No team wants to go and not win the game after you’ve just lost. I know I’m going to get the reaction I want on Saturday.
“I have winners in there [the dressing room] and I know it’s hurt them as much as it’s hurt me and everybody to do with the football club. I have no doubt that, come Saturday, everyone who comes to the game will see the reaction we want.
“I didn’t see Tuesday’s result coming but that's the crazy game of football, and Tuesday’s game was a crazy game. The run was good whilst it lasted but it brings everyone back to reality and now we go again.”
On Tuesday’s game, Bowyer added: “The way we moved the ball at times [on Tuesday] was unreal and that was the positive I took from it. We created chance after chance.
“We missed an open goal, hit the inside of the post, missed one on ones. It’s just crazy. How we’ve not won that game is beyond me but we didn’t and we have to move on.”
