Pardew issues warning

27 Dec 2006 - 07:47:08

New Charlton Athletic manager Alan Pardew has warned that avoiding relegation will not be easy, but believes the squad he has inherited from Les Reed will fight all the way for their Premiership survival.

Pardew was handed the reins of the ailing London club on Christmas Eve and his first game in charge will be against Fulham on Wednesday night.

"I'd be naive if I didn't say the odds were stacked against us," he told the club's official website. "We need to win half our games and that is a tough call.

"But the message to the players is that we are going to fight all the way to the end and draw in someone else.

"The reaction of the players has been exactly what I wanted.

"It was an easy decision to come here because it was my old club, the chairman and chief executive were here before and sometimes in life it is nice to go somewhere you feel you can get a good shot at it and I trust and I feel I will get that here."
