Michael Appleton Dismissed

Michael Appleton’s departure comes on the heels of a 12-game winless streak in all competitions, culminating in a last-minute goal conceded during Tuesday night’s match against Northampton Town.

The defeat has left Charlton Athletic’s just four points above the League One relegation zone.

Michael Appleton, who took over from Dean Holden in September, managed 28 games during his brief tenure, securing eight wins, suffering nine losses, and not tasting victory since November 28, 2023.

A statement released by the Charlton Athletic’s 30 minutes after the final whistle announced his immediate departure, expressing gratitude for his efforts.

Charlton Athletic now faces the task of finding their third manager of the season and the sixth different manager in less than three years.

A statement of the club reads “Charlton Athletic can confirm that Michael Appleton has left the club with immediate effect after being relieved of his role as Head Coach.


“The club would like to thank Michael for his efforts during his time in charge.”

Odds For Charlton’s Next Coach

The frontrunners for the managerial position, according to BetVictor’s odds as of January 24th at 10:20 am, include:

– Michael Duff at 4/1

– Lee Johnson at 5/1

– John Eustace at 6/1

– Scott Parker at 8/1

– Nigel Pearson at 8/1

– Steve Cotterill at 10/1


– Gareth Ainsworth at 10/1

– Cameron Toshack at 12/1

– Mark Bonner at 12/1

– Paul Hurst at 12/1

– Stephen Kenny at 14/1

– Mark Kennedy at 14/1

The Tuesday night clash with Northampton saw a rollercoaster of goals, with Charlton responding twice to Northampton’s early lead. However, a bizarre red card for Tayo Edun and a late goal secured Northampton’s victory.


Potential Candidates

Among the potential candidates for the managerial role is Nathan Jones, who previously worked as Charlton’s Under-21 development coach in 2012.

Another contender is Michael Duff, known for his coaching stint at Burnley’s academy and leading Cheltenham to promotion from League Two in 2021. Duff’s managerial journey also includes a brief tenure at Barnsley and Swansea City in 2022 and 2023, respectively, before his dismissal in December 2023.
