George Lapslie on scoring against Luton Town and his unique goal celebration

Having netted his first league goal for Charlton during Saturday's 3-1 win over Luton Town, George Lapslie is hoping that the team can continue to work together to ensure Charlton stave off relegation.

Speaking about his return from injury, Lapslie explained that he hopes to put it behind him and help the team achieve their targets

“It makes it worse, when the team is struggling. At times I thought we played well but we just weren't getting the points.

“I’m not saying now I’m back we’re going to start getting points but it’s going to be a slog and we’ve all got to come together and try and get us to safety."

Lapslie had not managed a start for the Addicks since November in a season which has been hampered by a recurring injury.

Despite his frustrations Lapslie admitted that finding the net makes all the hard work worthwhile, but was ultimately relieved that his side were able to take all three points against the Hatters.

“It’s been hard work but for moments like that it's worth it. Contributing to a win is always nice but it still would have been just as good if I didn't come on today and we got three points.

“The main thing for everyone in the squad is that we got the three points. If we lost to them, they were only three points away from us so they would only be one game away from us.”

Touching on his goal celebration, where he put the ball under his shirt, Lapslie revealed that his partner was pregnant and that the goals was dedicated to her.

“She’s pregnant, she’s 21 weeks pregnant so there’s going to be a little Lapo.”
