Charlton Athletic forward Josh Davison has insisted that the Addicks have got too much talent within their dressing room not to turn their form around and go on a positive run.
It had been a very difficult start to the campaign for Charlton in League and Nigel Adkins is a manager under pressure now after they have won just one of their opening nine league matches.
The Addicks were able to show some character in coming from a goal behind twice against Portsmouth on Saturday to earn a point in a 2-2 draw at the Valley.
That came largely down to Davison’s first goal of the campaign late on as he tapped home from close range following good work by Corey Blackett-Taylor to provide the assist.

A point though was not good enough to lift Charlton out of the bottom four in League One and they are currently two points adrift of safety and also now eight points off the top six places.

Speaking to London News Online, Davison insisted that he believes Charlton’s quality within their squad will eventually transpire into results on the field. He thinks that they just need that first positive result to kick start some momentum for them.
He said: “Look at the players we’ve got.
“Some of the names. Unbelievable talent for League One. I think once we get some good results going and we start hitting on all cylinders, we’ll just fly. So, we just need that first result. It might take a bit of luck but if we get that we’ll be off and running.”
Charlton simply should not be anywhere near where they are in the League One table at this moment in time. The Addicks are going to have to do more to try and put some much-needed wins on the board over the next few weeks to get them climbing the table.
Adkins is going to be coming under real pressure in the next few weeks you would imagine given Charlton’s poor start to the campaign. He needs his side to start picking up wins to be assured of his job in the long-term at the Valley.
Davison is one player that offers hope over a potential revival for the Addicks. The forward was a bright spark in their draw at Gillingham last time out, and he was then able to grab his first goal of the season against Portsmouth to help rescue a point for the Addicks.
The Addicks need some of their other more established names to come forward and start delivering consistently for them if they are to turn things around.
It could be that they need just one positive result to turn things around as Davison suggests here, but the longer they have to wait for that, the more difficult it will become.
