Brown full of praise for Campbell


Steve Brown was full of praise for Tyreece Campbell following the Addicks' 4-1 victory at Morecambe.

The 19-year-old academy graduate, who impressed from the outset at the Mazuma Stadium, showed great composure to provide the assist for Corey Blackett-Taylor's second and also maintained a 90% pass completion rate.

Speaking in the CharltonTV studio, Brown said: “It's a nice addition to the pace in wide areas. You're not relying on just two players all the time.

"It's nice to be able to go, ‘right, Tyreece, I think you've trained better than the other player or someone is carrying a slight injury’ and we've got someone who can produce in wide areas.

“I like him. He can hold defenders off quite well and he's got that turn of pace." 

The winger has made eight league appearances under Manager Dean Holden and netted his first senior goal in Charlton's 2-0 win over Barnsley in January.

“It's been a good year for him in regards to the action he's seen in the first team," said Brown. "He's scored, he's assisting and he's looking powerful, strong and quick. There's a lot more to come from him."
