Reed remains positive

17 Dec 2006 - 09:59:44

Charlton Athletic's head coach Les Reed has vowed to keep battling after a 3-0 home defeat to Liverpool pushed the Addicks closer to the relegation trap-door.

Reed has seen his charges won only once in six games since he succeeded Iain Dowie in The Valley hotseat, but he remains upbeat about an escape from a drop to the Championship.

He said: "It's not easy when you're at the bottom, but I have to continue to believe that we can turn it around.

"I've got to keep being positive and instil confidence in the players. We have a Carling Cup tie on Tuesday which could be a pleasant distraction and if we win it will help us to get our confidence back.

"We know what targets we've got to achieve. We need to get around 40 points and there are enough points available for us to pull away from trouble.

"There's no point in me flying off the handle at the players, because that won't help the situation. We must work hard on the training ground to get it right."
