Alan Pardew has sung Chris Iwelumo’s praises after the Addicks striker struck late on to defeat Bristol City on Tuesday night.

“Chris is doing a great job for us at the moment. He is carrying a few injuries but you wouldn’t know it,” Alan Pardew told the media.

“The formation we play with only one up front does not really suit a big man. But he worked very hard and kept City stretched.”

Having struck in injury time to beat Southampton last Saturday, Chris Iwelumo again struck late on against the Robins to earn the Addicks another late victory in the 1-0 win at Ashton gate, a victory that was a wonderful result against a team flying high in the Championship, and a win that allowed us to close the gap on them to a mere two points.

  • It’s incredible isn’t it, we kept conceding late goals, now all of a sudden we can’t stop scoring late goals, and winners at that. I had singled Iwelumo out as the player to watch, and he didn’t let me down.

  • Genius, Charlton Adickt… Not really! Colchester United fans know what a legend he was for the U’s though!

  • Those two goals by Iwelumo could prove vital at the end of the season. Not only the wins for the team but his confidence must now be sky high. Thats a cracking win at Bristol city and could just get you back on a bit of a run.

  • 3 goals in 3 games…now all he needs is to score for scotland B against Ireland and his confidence will be way up there… its a lot of pressure on a striker to play point in a 4-5-1, but Chris has coped admirably, well done chris, and well done to all the team for the 3 game comeback!!

  • I think so, he took a bit of time, was a little up and down but its easy to see why he has been so prolific with the U’s.
