Charlton Athletic manager Lee Bowyer says the team still have a chance of finishing in the automatic promotion places in League One.
The Addicks are currently fifth in the League One table, three points behind second-placed Barnsley and are one of four teams fighting for the second automatic promotion spot.
Luton Town are currently five points clear at the top of the table, leaving Barnsley, Sunderland, Portsmouth and Charlton to battle it out for second place, with all four teams separated by just three points.
Bowyer was speaking to the club’s media ahead of the game against Oxford United tomorrow and gave his verdict on the automatic promotion race in the third tier.

Charlton have won their last six consecutive matches and will be looking for back-to-back wins this weekend against Oxford and Scunthorpe United.
Chartlon are on a brilliant run at the moment and have lost just one of their last 17 matches. Bowyer is right, all the team can do is focus on themselves and make sure they are there to capitalise if any of their rivals drop points.
With just four matches to play, it will be a big ask for the team to finish in the automatic promotion places, especially with third-placed Sunderland have a game in hand.
However, it’s still all to play for and all the team can do is concentrating on winning their remaining games, to give them the best possible chance of finishing in the top two.
