Charlton skipper Nicky Bailey 'not monitoring rivals'

Charlton Athletic captain Nicky Bailey
Bailey is just three goals short of his tally from last season

Charlton captain Nicky Bailey says the Addicks are concentrating on their own results rather than worrying about their promotion rivals' performances.

Bailey scored the winner and his 10th goal of the season in Saturday's 2-1 success at Wycombe, which keeps Charlton third in League One.

He told BBC Radio Kent: "I know we've a game in hand on Norwich but all we're interested in is staying up there.

"We're not thinking about other teams. All we're thinking about is winning."

Bailey, who also revealed he had set himself a 10-goal target for the season, is now just three short of last season's total of 13.

He added: "Deon Burton is the club's leading scorer at the moment and there is a lot of banter going on between him and me.

"I've reminded him that I'm just two behind him and if he wants to stay ahead of me, he had better get his shooting boots on."
