ADDICKS striker Chuks Aneke has admitted that he is delighted after his hard work to get fit has paid off.

The striker netted for Charlton during their victory over Shrewsbury on the weekend.

Aneke missed 13 games with injury but has made an impact in each game since hie return to fitness.

In the last three games, the striker has scored twice and assisted one goal, a record that he is happy to have achieved.

Opening up about his injury issues, Aneke told the South London Press: “It’s frustrating. 

“Coming down from Birmingham, I didn’t start a lot of games. When I came, I was straight in. I had a bit of rhythm so it’s definitely frustrating.

“I’ve worked hard off the pitch with Adam Coe and the physical staff. I’ve come back in good shape and picked up where I left off.

“Every player is different. That’s my personal battle that I’ve had throughout my whole career.

“That’s something that I’ve always got to stay on top of. My personal battle. Some players are fit as a fiddle and can play every minute. I’m not one of those players unfortunately. 

“I can do what I can do. I did it today, so I’m delighted.”
