Academy Notes: Joseph Osaghae

Charlton Athletic U23s goalkeeper Joseph Osaghae spoke to Valley Gold on Monday afternoon after the 3-1 win over Colchester United at Princes Park.

The Nigerian shot-stopper told Valley Gold:

“Going into the game with 2 straight defeats we knew as a team that a win was very important.

“We were in control for the majority of the game, especially in the first half and our dominance was rewarded with an early goal by Richard Afrane-Kesey followed by a second from Samuel Oguntayo finishing the first half with a 2-0 lead.

“In the second half, we were under some pressure, but we still looked threatening on the counter-attack, and although we conceded early on, we quickly pulled a goal back seconds afterwards with a Charles Clayden tap-in from just 6 yards out easing that pressure and allowing us to see the game out.

“Overall we can go into the next game away at Cardiff City, with our heads held high and a restored confidence!”
