Charlton Athletic confirm that Lee Bowyer will remain in charge as caretaker manager until the end of the season.
The Addicks have won Bowyer’s first three games in charge, scoring nine goals and conceding just one in a run of form that has taken them into the play-off spots.
Bowyer was appointed Caretaker Manager last month and said at the time he didn’t know how long he would be in charge for because of a potential takeover.

Bowyer said: “I have been really pleased with the lads. They have done everything I have asked of them since I’ve come in. I’m pleased that I have been given until the end of the season but the focus does not change. We want to make the play-offs and I believe we will.”
Club director Richard Murray said: “Lee has done a fantastic job since taking charge and the results demonstrate the players have really responded to him. You can also hear the relationship he, along with Johnnie, have with Charlton fans from the reaction they get on a matchday.
“The takeover hasn’t moved as quickly as we had envisaged and it was important for those players and fans to know that whatever happens there will be stability.
“At this stage, there are still two parties looking to purchase the club and everything is close but a date for a takeover is not something I am able to put a timeline on because, as we have seen, these things can take longer than expected.”
