Charlton won't let Powell slip away

Charlton Athletic are determined to keep hold of manager Chris Powell.

Joint-owner and chairman Michael Slater has hailed the superb job done by the Addicks' manager, who brought 17 new faces into his squad only last summer.

Slater, a former lawyer, joked: "We are going to put Chris in handcuffs and tie him to his chair. He is not going anywhere!

"We've come in here with a long-term objective.

"I don't see the Championship as where Charlton belongs. We have greater ­ambitions than that and we're not going to get to where we want to be if all our talent - whether it is managerial or playing talent - is allowed to go."
