He was Charlton’s captain, the club’s best player and biggest asset as the Addicks had fallen just short of reaching the League One play-off final.


So it was no surprise when goalscoring midfielder Nicky Bailey was the subject of interest from rival clubs in the summer of 2010 – even though it was his wild missed penalty that was a key reason Charlton hadn’t reached Wembley. 


What might shock Addicks supporters, though, is that Bailey’s decisive missed play-off semi-final spot-kick was virtually his last interaction with the club before his £1.4m move to Middlesbrough.
