Manchester United loanee Dylan Levitt was picked out for praise by Charlton boss Lee Bowyer despite defeat at the weekend.
Charlton were beaten 2-0 away at Lincoln City, with Levitt starting the game.
Bowyer told the club website after the game that he saw Levitt’s performance as a positive he could take away.
He said: “I’ll take a lot of positives. I thought Dylan in his first proper league game, there was a lot to be happy in his performance – his range of passing and awareness.”
Just getting going
This was Levitt’s first league start. He played 76 minutes before being substituted.
The Wales international had three shots at goal, but his efforts were wayward, all landing off target, but at least he showed some attacking intent.
He made one tackle, while completing 85 per cent of his passes.
Bowyer’s words will encourage him, and that may be what they are intended for, to give a young player some belief after a defeat.
Levitt is only 19-years-old and some players adapt to competitive football more quickly than others.
He has experience playing at international level which helps, and over the course of the season he should make a strong contribution for Charlton.
