Bowyer on Saturday's match-winners Page and Zyro

Caretaker boss Lee Bowyer labelled Lewis Page and Michał Żyro as 'outstanding' following Saturday's 2-0 win over Plymouth Argyle at The Valley

The pair both scored inside the first 20 minutes to set the Addicks on their way to an important three points that moved them back to within two points of the play-off places. Extended highlights of the match are available to watch on Valley Pass by clicking here.

Bowyer believed that every member of his starting XI would have been worthy of the Man of the Match award but reserved special praise for his two goalscorers, who have both struggled with injuries in recent months.

"I'm really pleased for Pagey, because it has been tough for him," Bowyer said. "He has been out for a long time injured, so hopefully things can start to get better for him now. 

"Our full-backs were unbelievable; the workload that I asked from them was massive. They were our width, they were our out-ball and we knew that Plymouth's wide-men both played really narrow. 

"Our out-ball was always going to be to our full-backs and I asked them to run up and down the flanks for 90 minutes. That was Pagey's first game - apart from Blackpool - in I don't know how long, so to play the way he did was outstanding.

On Żyro - who revealed afterwards that he is hungry for more goals - Bowyer added: "I think Michał showed on Saturday that he is good enough to start. He's answered that. 

"He was outstanding, as they all were, and I couldn't have picked a man of the match out of all of them. Our goalkeeper made a great save a 1-0 and helped to relieve the pressure by coming to punch and claim crosses and, on another day, I think we could have scored more goal ourselves." 

New Caretaker Assistant Manager Johnnie Jackson was not on the bench for the match, which allowed academy graduate Taylor Maloney to come off the bench and make his league debut late on.

Bowyer said: "Jacko wasn't on the bench on Saturday because he is injured. He's got a sore Achilles. It was nice to be able to bring on young Taylor for the final few minutes. He is a very good player, by the way."
