Hudson blames disjointed Addicks

Mark Hudson says the instability at Charlton has led to relegation

Charlton captain Mark Hudson says the club's disjointed season is to blame for their relegation to League One.

The Addicks dropped into the third tier of English football for the first time since 1981 on Saturday after a 2-2 draw with Blackpool.

Hudson told BBC London: "We've been disjointed through the season with lots of people going in and coming out and obviously the manager going.

"We've conceded too many goals which we've tried to rectify recently."

Hudson also says the club's last three games of the season, starting with a home match against Cardiff on Tuesday night, will take priority before the futures of any of the players is discussed.

He said: "Obviously, we'll have to see these next three games through and do as well as we can and get to the summer and see what happens from there."

Charlton boss Phil Parkinson's position at the club is sure to come under scrutiny in the summer but Hudson feels the manager's experience of League One when he was in charge at Colchester will stand him in good stead next season.

"Recently if you look at our performances we've done very well and that's testament to him and the players so hopefully we can keep him in charge and keep a lot of the players and try and get promoted in the first go," added Hudson.
