Lyle Taylor remained calm when asked about Charlton’s chances of finishing in the automatic promotion places, following Saturday’s 2-0 win at Plymouth Argyle.
The Addicks are six points behind second-placed Barnsley and have a game in hand on the Tykes, while Sunderland have an additional match in hand on the Yorkshire club and sir level on points with them.
Portsmouth – who are also in the promotion mix – are four points ahead of Charlton in fourth and, with plenty more twists and turns to come, Taylor says that Charlton should only worry about themselves .
“For me, simply, it’s about winning every single game,” he said. “You want to win every single game, so we will rest up now [following Plymouth] and we will try and go and win on Tuesday. B
“Lee Bowyer said beforehand, if we have a really, really good week here, who knows where we could be at the end of it.
“That’s the aim now; the aim is nine points, the aim is with six games left to try and get 18 points. If we can get 18 points then who knows. It’s going to be very difficult but we can do it.”
The Addicks have six games left of the regular campaign and face Wycombe Wanders and Luton Town on Tuesday night and Saturday afternoon respectively, before facing Oxford United, Scunthrope United, Gillingham and Rochdale in the coming weeks.
Taylor will be hoping to add league goal number 17 for the season tomorrow night when Charlton take on Wycombe in Buckinghamshire.
