Charlton Athletic coach praises Lookman for excellent strikes

17 December 2015, 08:44

Lagos - Charlton Athletic's  interim manager Karel Fraeye gave his players the hairdryer treatment after they threw away a two - goal lead to draw 2 - 2 with Bolton Wanderers in the English Championship on Tuesday night.

Ademola Lookman fired The Addicks into the lead after 26 second before scoring his third league goal in the 26th minute but the visitors drew level through Emile Heskey and Josh Vela.

Karel Fraeye praised Lookman for his excellent strikes but was disappointed that the team could not score more goals to kill off the opponents.

"Very disappointed. We played very, very well, we had some chances in the first twenty minutes and scored two, but the way we handled that was a disgrace," the Belgian coach said.

"Lookman finished two brilliant attacks and we had some more, but our finishing was not good enough."

"That was the way we could hurt them and that is the way we should have continued."

The 18-year-old Lookman was substituted in the 60th minute, taking his total game time in the Championship to 424 minutes.
