Sam Field is hoping his Charlton career can kick-on after the international break.

The midfielder, on a season long loan from West Brom, has slowly been integrated into the Addick’s first XI as he builds up his fitness.

Field has started two of Lee Bowyer’s last three league matches, the latest a 75minute stint in Charlton’s 2-0 win over Reading which put the SE7 outfit second in the Championship.

The 21-year-old, although hungry to prove his value, is aware of the team-ethos Bowyer has build at The Valley.

“Hopefully I can stay in and start showing what I can really do more and more now,” he said.

“I’m just happy to be playing.

“It’s a great club, I’m happy to be here.

“I think it’s an honour to come in.

“If they’re winning then they’re doing everything right.

“We’ve got to support each other so if I have to come on for ten minutes, like I did in the game before, that’s fine.

“I’ve got no issue, I just want to help the team.

“It’s been a bit different, after being at West Brom for 14 years and only knowing that way, it’s a bit of a change, but these are a great group of lads.

"There’s a great camaraderie here.

"There’s a feeling that we’ll just run for each other, which is massive in this league.

This Is Local London:

One player who’s challenging Field for a starting berth is Darren Pratley.

Bowyer has used both midfielder’s in rotation this season, both with success.

Pratley, who replaced Field at The Madejski on Saturday, has earned himself a new one-year deal such is the form of the 33-year-old, and Field admits the competition is only helping his own game as he learns from the former Bolton and Swansea man.

“Pratley is a great guy, a lovely guy.

“He’s been really helpful since I’ve come in.

“You can learn off lots of people and definitely him for sure.

“You don’t hang around in this game for the length of time that he has if you’re not doing something right.

“If we have to share it like that, it doesn’t bother me at all.

"It helps both of us.”
