The Addicks, who face Blackpool tomorrow at The Valley, haven’t won on their home turf since December 12th.

Their surprise loss to Burton Albion on Tuesday night was their third consecutive home defeat.

Relegated from the championship last season, Charlton was five points behind the play-offs after playing more games than most other teams.

“We sometimes missed out because we think we are better than who we are,” said Bowyer.

“When things go well, I’m the one who takes the praise. Well, it’s only right that I take the criticism when things aren’t going as well as they are now.

“I’m big enough and I’ve been in the game long enough, I can take it.

“There are certain things that I cannot control. I can control how we get the ball from the goalkeeper to your outer center half to get it to your full-back and your striker. I can control that.

“But the last bit, I’m not really in control of it. Whether it is their goal or their control, I cannot control. “
