Charlton boss Lee Bowyer heaps praise on goal scorers Zyro and Aribo after 3-1 home win over Rotherham

Charlton caretaker boss Lee Bowyer hailed goal scorers Michal Zyro and Joe Aribo after his side’s 3-1 win over Rotherham United.

Polish striker Zyro gave the Addicks a first-half lead, with Aribo’s brace in the second-period earning all three points for the South Londoners in their quest for the play-offs.

“Outstanding performance again,” said Bowyer of Wolves-loanee Zyro, as he scored his third goal in club colours.

“His physical presence. He wins headers, he holds the ball up. He’s technically very, very good. His awareness, people running off of him and the runs he makes. And the lad can finish. He’s got the full package for me. I’m delighted for him.”


Aribo’s two-goal haul came courteously of a header from a Jake Forster-Caskey free-kick, and then a sublime finish in off the crossbar after a one-two with Nicky Ajose.

“The first one was a set-play,” added Bowyer. “[Assistant manager Johnnie Jackson] does all that so I was pleased we got one from a set-play.

“I said to Joe before the game, if you make runs forward their midfielders won’t track you. That’s what he did and he scored. I’m really pleased for him because he’s a great lad and he works so hard for the team.”
