Charlton boss Karel Fraeye says he is more interested in Addicks continuing to perform well than his title with the club.

The interim manager made the comment to Sky News while reflecting on the team’s 1-0 victory over Birmingham on Saturday, November 21 - the first away win for the club this season.

In the process he will have boosted his chances of staying on in the role permanently, but he said that is not his main focus at the moment.

Fraeye said: “Whether it is called interim or permanent will not effect me. The board make the decisions.

“We were aware that Birmingham struggle at home when they try to be dominant. Without playing defensively we tried to put together a good organisation.

“Our win over Sheffield Wednesday a fortnight ago gave us confidence to withstand some difficult moments. Both teams had their chances and we managed to take one when our skipper Johnnie Jackson scored.

“We know the qualities of our captain. He is a real leader and we get along really well. It was only his fifth game of the season and it was his third goal which makes him our leading goalscorer.

“The back-to-back wins are vital after that disastrous performance at Middlesbrough. No one wanted to be part of the dressing room. They were so down at that moment but after turning the corner against Sheffield Wednesday two weeks ago it gave us a huge boost not to be in the same situation again.”
