Charlton's Johann Gudmundsson feels it is a joy to play in a midfield behind strike duo Igor Vetokele and Tony Watt.

The Icelandic winger was speaking after his free-kick broke the deadlock against Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

A brace from Watt in the second half sealed all three points for the Addicks and Gudmundsson admitted he loves playing with the exciting pair.

“Two good strikers,” was how the man signed from AZ Alkmaar in the summer described Watt and Vetokele.

“Tony Watt was brilliant, he’s been brilliant when he’s started games here. 

“Igor obviously is a proven goal-scorer. It’s so good to have the two of them up there.

“It’s definitely good for me to try and play them in.”

Saturday’s 34th minute set piece which gave the hosts the lead was Gudmundsson’s seventh league goal of the season, with most of them coming in spectacular style.

And the 24-year-old claimed afterwards it was a case of practice makes perfect.

Gudmundsson said: “I just think I have a good left foot, and that’s it.

“I’ve practiced over the years on my shooting and on my free-kicks. That’s what I do after training, I practice free-kicks and try and take it into the games.

“That’s what happened today, it was a good free-kick.

News Shopper:

“I would love to add that to my game - to score some tap ins to get more goals.

“But I’ll take scoring good goals. Thats not bad, is it!”

The Huddersfield victory was witnessed by a bumper 25,545 crowd thanks to the Football For A Fiver initiative.

And Gudmundsson, who was on Chelsea’s books as a youngster, enjoyed playing in front of a huge turnout.

He said: “It was a great atmosphere today, lovely to play in front of a full stadium. It makes a change.

“When you’re a kid you dream of playing in front of full stadiums and obviously it is much better when the stadiums are full.

“You want to play in front of a lot of people. 

“I hope they come back, I definitely hope so.

“We’re playing some good football, so hopefully we’ll attract some people to come back.”

Gudmundsson then allayed any fears about a major injury after he was substituted early in the second half.

“I’ll be alright,” he said.

“I’ve just played a lot of games, played the ninety minutes a lot of times and my legs were a little bit tired.

“I felt my hamstring and my hip today, so we decided to take me off and give me a little rest.”

Charlton have a busy period coming up but Gudmundsson is keeping his feet on the ground in terms of what he thinks can be achieved. 

He explained: “We just want to try to win as many games as we can and see where it takes us.

“Obviously we go into every game to win it and hopefully take us up (the league). 

“We’re probably not going to get play-offs, but if we can be around that place it will be good for us.”
