Sports Letters: Gap no narrower

Sir: As a supporter of Charlton Athletic I would like to be able to support the view suggested in your columns that the gap between Premier and the First Division is narrower than money and status suggest.

Unfortunately after Saturday's results this is harder to do. Charlton were the only 'giant-killers' to win (by four goals over Leeds conquerors, Oxford) with Bolton and Luton both losing away. We played poorly but Oxford were worse.

Last week's results highlighted the ability that a number of First Division sides have of raising their game to take on almost any Premier side home or away, but last Saturdays results confirm their inability to reproduce this week-in week-out.

Yours
