Joe Aribo must get into the double figures for goals this season, according to Charlton boss Lee Bowyer.

The 22-year-old poked the ball home after Doncaster Rovers’ Tom Anderson rattled his own crossbar with a header during the comfortable 2-0 victory.

A win which sees Charlton rise to eighth in League One, he’s added to the two he had going in which came in the away defeat to Scunthorpe United.

Aribo, who now has three goals in 13 appearances so far, was praised once again by Bowyer who explained why he’s so crucial to the team.

But the Addicks manager doesn’t believe the midfielder should settle for what he has now.

He said: “If he scores 10 goals this season then that's a good season [for Aribo].”

When asked if Aribo is aiming for that, he added: “Well, I'm telling him to because three, four, five goals a season isn't good enough for a midfielder. Not for the type of midfielder he is, he's got everything.

“He's good in the air so he's dangerous in set-plays like today and he's good with his feet - he's unreal with his feet - so he needs to get double figures. I think that's a very good season for him.

“If he can do that then he's improving. He's improving on the ball; today he was playing one and two-touch around the corner and getting it back.

“But it wasn't just him, I think they [the team] were all good today.”

Aribo was not in Charlton’s starting 11 very often during the first few months of last season but eventually secured a spot, scoring six times during 36 appearances in all competitions.

And his strike against Doncaster means he is now the team’s third leading scorer in League One – behind duo Grant and Lyle Taylor.

Two more will see him tie his league career best, which came during the 2017/18 campaign, at five.

Bowyer added: “It means everything [to have Aribo in my team]. Joe knows how I feel about him, he knows I love him. As a person he's a great lad and he wants to learn. He's a young lad and he's got so much ability.

“I don't know how many times I've sat here and said how good he is, and how good he can be. I'm grateful to have him in my side but I think he's grateful to be playing because he didn't play much last season. Now he's playing, scored another goal, and he's learning.

“That's the most important thing when you're young and you've got someone like myself and Jacko [Johnnie Jackson] teaching him, improving him as a player.

“I think that's good for him in his career.”
