Dowie Hoping To Keep Carson

The young on-loan keeper has impressed the Addicks boss during his time at The Valley and Dowie is hoping that The Reds will allow Carson to remain with Charlton for the rest of the season.

"We are just going to have to hope that a call from Rafa Benitez doesn't come," Dowie has said.

"Scott has been absolutely superb and we are delighted Liverpool have given us the licence to take him, but it benefits both parties in that Scott is developing all the time, working and also learning from Premiership experience.

"Liverpool have Jose Reina as their number one and we hope we don't get that call but, obviously, we can't affect that."
