Charlton Athletic may have ownership issues off the pitch, but that is not stopping manager Lee Bowyer going about his business with the Addicks in in the play-off places in League One with 11 games of the season remaining.
A player who has been a virtual constant for Bowyer is 28-year-old striker Lyle Taylor, who has scored 12 goals and provided seven assists in 31 appearances so far this season.
Bu is Taylor good enough to play in the Championship?
“He’s got to be worth a punt hasn’t he?
“Taylor is performing to a high standard consistently with Charlton this season and I would be surprised if no Championship club came calling for him in the summer.
“He would be a gamble, but sometimes you need to take that risk.”
“It’s always hard to gauge if a player can make the step up from the third tier to the Championship.
“And I think it is important which team they go to.
“Taylor would need to go to a side that creates plenty of chances, as he would need time to adapt and would benefit from that.
“I have my reservations, but there will be others too – and the Charlton man will want to prove the critics wrong.”
“Not for a top team, but he’d be comfortable at Preston, Wigan or somewhere like that.
“He’s agile, quick and has acute awareness of which runs to make.
“He’d be a wise signing for someone.”
“Confidence is big in football, so next year could be his chance to shine at the level.
“The goals are flowing and the step up isn’t massive anymore.
“Goalscorers are goalscorers, whatever level they’re at.”
