Hackett-Fairchild hoping to earn more chances after bagging Checkatrade Trophy double

Reeco Hackett-Fairchild is targeting more first-team opportunities after bagging two goals in Charlton’s Checkatrade Trophy victory over Swansea City U21s on Tuesday night. 

The Addicks fell behind early on at the Liberty Stadium but the striker’s double, plus an effort from Karlan Ahearne-Grant, who made it three goals in as many games, fired Karl Robinson’s side into the last 16

And now Hackett-Fairchild is hoping to earn more chances in the senior squad.

“At Charlton, there is always a chance that you could break in,” Hackett-Fairchild told Valley Pass. 

“Multiple players have done it this season, so everyone has just got to get their heads down and work hard. I know that if I’m doing the right things then the gaffer will give me a chance again. 

“I’ve managed to get off the mark for goals and now I need to keep going. With the first one, I saw Joe get down the line and a little gap opened up for me, I swivelled and managed to finish it with my left foot. 

“I think the second one could have gone anywhere but it beat the goalkeeper and that is all that matters.”
