Charlton's front two hungry for more goals, says Michal Zyro

Striker Michał Żyro says that he and Nicky Ajose are hungry for more goals. 

The Wolves loanee linked up brilliantly with Ajose during Saturday's 2-0 victory over Plymouth Argyle, and scored his side's second goal by heading home a Joe Aribo cross on 17 minutes.

The front two combined in a new-look 4-4-2 formation and Żyro says that, when Charlton head to Northampton Town on Good Friday, they will both be hoping to hit the net.

"Nicky and I started together for the first time," Żyro said. "Mentally, we are hungry about playing and enjoying football.

"Every player wants to play - I signed on loan to play games. I didn't expect to play for 90 minutes from the first game because I didn't play for a long time before [due to a serious knee injury].

"I just expected a chance for 20 or 30 minutes. Now it's good. Saturday was my second Charlton goal and I need to keep going and keep my health and be ready for Northampton on Friday."

Żyro also praised caretaker boss Lee Bowyer, who switched to the 4-4-2 system for his first match in change.

He said: "We changed our mentality a little bit and I felt we were fighting all the time against Plymouth.

"Every player gave 100 per cent and we scored two goals. We need to keep [more] clean sheets and we'll be all good."

Żyro's wife is six-months pregnant and he celebrated his goal but putting the ball under his shirt and running towards where she was sitting. 

He said: "Our baby is due in the middle of June.

"It's the first time I've done that celebration. I wanted to do it in a home game because my wife is always in the stands watching. It was really nice to have the chance to do it."
