Midfielder Jake Forster-Caskey has reflected on his penalty miss in the victory over Chesterfield last weekend and he’s determined to add more goals to his game.

Taking the two one victory at the Proact Stadium, Forster-Caskey opened the scoring in the 37th minute and Ricky Holmes doubled our advantage just ahead of the hour mark, but in stoppage time he had an opportunity to register the brace having been fouled in the box but he saw his effort saved.

Speaking to the Official Site with the players back in training ahead of Sunday’s final fixture of the campaign against Swindon Town, the former Brighton man admitted that he was certainly trying to add more goals to his game now.

‘I feel like I need to add more goals to my game. People will say that I`m quite neat and tidy but if you can start adding goals and assists you become much more valuable and can impact the game a lot more. I`ve been working hard to try and improve that. Lee Bowyer has come in and helped and Johnnie Jackson always helps me and tells me I need to get into the box more. The gaffer as well has been on at me about scoring more goals, so I`ve been working hard behind the scenes and hopefully now it`s paying off.’

The 23 year old went on to say.

‘I`ve only scored a handful of goals in my career. I`m still young so if I can keep improving then hopefully the goals will come. Hopefully they do because if we`re looking to next season – if we can score from midfield and all different areas – they`re the teams that go up.’

The goal was his second for Charlton with him finding the net against Southend United prior to that, but it was only his 15th of his career and missing the penalty late on he admitted had given him mixed feelings at the full time whistle.

‘It`s nice to win but I`m a little bit gutted about the penalty at the end. Overall, we`re happy to have started picking up results because now it`s about looking ahead to next year and going into next season with a positive vibe.’
