Charlton Athletic put their 100 per cent Championship record on the line at Barnsley on Saturday – with Jonny Williams labelling it as his “most enjoyable” start to a campaign.
The Addicks are flying high in the early standings. Only Manchester City and Liverpool have averaged more points in 2019.
Williams told the South London Press: “It has been really enjoyable, it’s definitely the most enjoyable start I’ve had in my career.
“I’ve always wanted to be in a team and doing a pre-season where I will be at that team. I’d never had that in my career.
“I’d always been with Palace at the start but not quite in the squad and then loaned out after the season started. It hasn’t always felt like I’m part of it.
“Luckily I went away for pre-season with Charlton and I only missed a few days. Now we have got two wins out of two after facing two very good teams. It’s amazing really, we keep riding the wave from last year.
“We have got a tough game this weekend. We’ve got to go there and believe in ourselves. It has been a fantastic start but we can’t get carried away. Our aim is still to stay in the division – anything else we achieve is a bonus really.”
