Pre Match Views

Kenny Jackett


Chris Powell

"It’s a totally different game to the one against Millwall on Saturday. I watched them on Sunday against Reading and they have some good players as well as momentum, which is huge. They have it in spades at the moment and that’s not just down to their football, but that club is huge and it can sense that it is on its way back after having a dreadful time through successive relegations.

"Now they could create a remarkable record in becoming the first team to go down two Leagues only to bounce straight back successively.

“They have a good Manager in Kenny (Jackett); a man I know from our local rivalry when I was Manager at Charlton. Everything is in place for them."
