Powell: It was a smash and grab

Powell: It was a smash and grab

Chris Powell has conceded that Charlton's victory at Bournemouth was slightly fortuitous, but you take what you can get!

The game looked destined for a goalless draw but then Charlton snatched it in injury time: 'I said to Lee Bradbury afterwards that it was 0-0 really. A tricky game for us away from home, but we like playing away.

'We've carried on all season, especially when we score we don't lose. There are only two games which we haven't scored in and we've lost. It was a smash and grab for us here.'

Praise was given by Powell to match winner Yann Kermorgant, who he felt deserved his goal: 'as in all games, there are moments of quality, which we had in the set-play. Danny Haynes who came on was lively, as he always is, and then Yann (Kermorgant) getting on the end of it.

'Yann has been superb for us and he's been overdue a goal. We had one or two situations where really if we had the right pass or kept composure, we could have opened Kermorgant.'

The league one title is now surely Charlton's, with only them able to throw this away!
