Parkinson praise for McKenzie

12 Nov 2009 - 16:32:36

Charlton Athletic manager Phil Parkinson has commended striker Leon McKenzie following his first goal for the club during Wednesday's Johnstone's Paint Trophy loss at Southampton.

The former Norwich City and Coventry City man's effort proved to be a consolation in the 2-1 reversal, but Parkinson is hopeful it will give him some much-needed confidence.

Speaking to the club's official website, he said: "People have seen tonight that Leon is getting stronger and stronger and getting closer to that first start.

"We've just got to be careful. He's a good lad who is determined to be a big part of our season.

"Any striker needs to score their first goal for a club and it was a good moment for him."
