‘Won’t be happy,’ says Nathan Jones in response to Charlton Athletic’s decision amid the’miracle’ claim.

Manager of Charlton Athletic, Nathan Jones, acknowledged that ‘fans won’t be thrilled’ with some of his choices as he attempts to guide The Valley into survival. Following Tuesday night’s 1-1 draw against Port Vale in London, the Welshman went into further detail about his strategy.

Throughout the opening forty-five minutes, the Addicks were hardly convincing as defensive lapses again gave the visitors the opportunity to put the ball in the net and take a 1-0 lead in the 37th minute. After the interval, Charlton came back and equalized thanks to a fantastic goal by Freddie Ladapo.

Jones started the Ipswich Town loanee on the bench on Tuesday after he had started the previous five after signing from the Championship team in January but had failed to score. With twenty minutes remaining, the 31-year-old took Daniel Kanu’s position. Alfie May, another striker, had been set to be replaced by Chuks Aneke.

After full-time, Jones addressed the club’s media and addressed the concerns expressed by some Addicks fans on the hardworking May’s dismissal. “They work for sixty minutes, and I demand that workrate for sixty minutes,” he uttered. If all goes well, they can carry on; if not, new players and game-changers will emerge.

“We want to think like that. I have no control over the decisions that won’t make fans happy. I’m trying to communicate that we’re going to play a specific style and target teams because that’s the team we want to be.”

Despite early worries from supporters about the side’s performance, Jones was remarkably upbeat following the outcome. Proud with his team, the Welshman highlighted the ‘athleticism and aggression’ of the young group.

He went on: “They’re a young team, so they will make mistakes, but they want to play for Charlton and they will improve.” This is not a miraculous treatment.

“We will be a lot, much better side if we improve every week and get stronger, fitter, and more superior. It’s an initial step. Building something takes time. It was a performance from the weekend that was all chalk and cheese.”
