Lee Bowyer believes Charlton are just a handful of results away from safety after picking up three points at Nottingham Forest on Tuesday night.

Lyle Taylor scored the only goal of the game at the City Ground to stun the home crowd as the Addicks went six points clear of the bottom three.

With 14 games remaining the Charlton chief wasn’t taking anything for granted but felt confident in his side reaching the early season survival target of 50 points.

“For me we need three more wins and a couple more draws for the weigh in and I believe in this group 100 percent,” he said.

"There’s plenty of games to go yet and plenty of twists and turns and there’s going to be teams above us that are going to get sucked into it as well.

"People panic, but there’s a long way to go.”

With Forest fighting for automatic promotion, few would’ve predicted an away victory. But Bowyer believes that with the squad he has, they can compete with the best in the division, as they had done at the start of the campaign when they floated around the top six for the first two months.

"The most important thing is that we got the three points after a great team performance.

“That’s why we had such a good start; because we were playing like that, but we’ve had difficult times.

“Everybody worked so hard and now we move on to Saturday, I hear it’s going to be a sell out so now I’m looking forward to that and we have to maintain that standard.”

Charlton welcome Blackburn Rovers to The Valley on Saturday.
