And time for one more

Jamie Ward snuck under the door at The Valley on Friday after Sky Sports and the BBC had wrapped up their final transfer window coverage and gone home for the weekend.

There was mad panic loaning today around the EFL, and it looked as if the Addicks were not going to get the one more player Lee Bowyer had hoped for. A striker, a good player who can play anywhere up top Bowyer described him as yesterday, but no whispers to who that could be until around 4.30pm, when this player turned out to be Jamie Ward.

The 32-year old brings much needed experience to the squad but has not had a lot of game time recently and was told in the summer that Forest wanted to move him on. Steve Gallen describes him as a bundle of energy with a great attitude. Sounds like he gives us further options, and maybe we now have someone who can take a free-kick and a corner.

Big credit to Steve Gallen and Lee Bowyer, who with much hard work and negotiation have squeezed every last drop out a tough budget. We are still short in areas, but with players coming back from injury, and with the loan additions of Steer, Bielik, Cullen and now Ward, and with 41 games left, we may have a chance.

    Absolutely fantastic from Bowyer and Gallen, the calibre of free and loans are great. If the Aussies ever turn up I hope they recognise the job LB is doing.
