Lyle Taylor’s partnership with Igor Vetokele will blossom according to the striker.

Much has been made of the lack of goals after Karlan Grant’s departure in January, but Grant believes game time with the fit again Angolan is key to forming a similar bond.

Taylor scored the winner in the Addicks 2-1 win against Portsmouth and believes the signs are there of a fruitful partnership with the man who’s recently returned from injury.

“Igor is a very talented boy,” said Taylor.

“He’s a very good footballer so I can’t imagine it’s going to be that difficult.

“There’s times against Portsmouth I was looking for Igor and he was there, the same way I was looking for Karlan and he was there.

“That to me is promising and we’ll do everything we can so that partnership bears fruit and continues to bear fruit and the team continues to pick up points.”

Taylor, who combined with Grant scored 28 of Charlton’s goals before his departure to Huddersfield in the transfer window, believes it’s about having time to build the understanding.

“The issue that we had is that me and Karlan spent every minute playing with each other so there’s not been much time from anybody else to get a look in and develop a partnership.

“Me and Karlan didn’t click straight away, we scored goals straight away, but we didn’t click.

“It’s going to take a few games, we’ve only started four games together.

“Ok we are in March now but we’ve only played limited minutes together.

“We will continue to work on it and gain an understanding.”

Charlton welcome Burton to The Valley on Tuesday.
