Tony Watt runs riot in Charlton’s 3-0 win over Huddersfield

Charlton continued their recent resurgence with a win over Huddersfield on Saturday thanks to striker Tony Watt finding the net twice.

Chris Powell suffered a nightmare return to the Valley at the weekend as his old club Charlton Athletic secured a vital 3-0 victory against his current side Huddersfield Town.

After Johann Berg Gudmundsson had opened the scoring with a stunning 25-yard free kick, Tony Watt scored twice to return the Addicks to the top half of the Championship.

The former Celtic striker, who was brought to Charlton in January after a difficult spell at Belgian side Standard Liege, has hit the ground running in London and his early cameos from the bench have seen him break into the first team in recent weeks.

Watt scored his first goal for the club in a loss to Norwich last month and backed that up with a superbly energetic Man of the Match display in the win over Brentford, which ended their 13-match winless run in the Championship.

His latest brace were his second and third strikes for Charlton and their recent upturn in fortunes, which has seen them win three of their last four games, must surely see them safe from relegation for another year.

With Watt in this sort of form, Addicks fans must now be looking up rather than down when looking at the Championship table.
