Karl Robinson was at Bristol Rovers tonight as he prepared to take over as Charlton manager. He met with Roland Duchatelet in Paris yesterday and accepted the role. He will be the eighth manager in the last three years.
Most Addicks seemed underwhelmed or indifferent at the news and speculated how long he would last.
The absence of Declan Rudd with a hip injury was the shock team news from Bristol tonight with Phillips replacing him in goal. There was also surprise at Chicksen replacing Johnnie Jackson.
