Freedman boiling over Kettle's display

Bolton manager Dougie Freedman was careful to comment on the refereeing performance of Trevor Kettle following his side's 3-2 defeat at Charlton.

Wanderers were leading 2-1 when Kettle sent off Sam Ricketts for a second bookable offence. He then dismissed Craig Davies in injury time after he picked up two quick yellow cards.

"The sendings off were difficult to take because I don't think Ricketts' first caution was one," Freedman said.

"The referee is only part-time and it's difficult for him to keep the intensity.

"But we put the referee in a position where he had to make the decisions. We had a good start and played well, we should have been more up, Charlton came at us well. The crowd got behind them.

"I can only control what I can control and pick a team for Huddersfield on Monday. I'm confident - we've not lost ground.

"I strongly believe if we can win a couple of games and put pressure on other teams, we can get back. This showed it's possible we can be in the play-offs."

Goals from Johnnie Jackson, Dorian Dervite and Yann Kermorgant were enough for Charlton after Bolton had led 2-0 through Marvin Sordell and Medo Kamara.
