CARETAKER Charlton Athletic boss Phil Parkinson was clearly deflated by the loss at Blackpool.

”I can’t dress it up, we got beaten today by the better side,” he told

“The first half was okay but when Blackpool started to play and get the big fella [Dickinson] involved he caused us more problems as the game went on.

”We were disappointing at the start of the second half and didn’t start right.

”They started sharper and when they scored you could see it gave them a massive lift mentally and physically. We didn’t respond to that as well as I would have liked.”
