Carson: Pardew has won over the Charlton dressing room

Carson said: “The response to the new manager is great because he has come in and set his stall out in terms of what he wants straight away.

“Everyone respects him because of what he has done with West Ham and Reading.

“He has got so much hunger and desire. He has got a thing about him where from day one the players have bought into what he is about.

“Everyone thought: ‘Right, we are just going to do what he says’.”
