DARREN Ambrose was delighted to have ended Charlton's poor run of home form even if it meant scoring against his boyhood club Ipswich Town.

Ambrose netted twice in the 3-1 victory on Saturday with Ipswich resident Chris Iwelumo scoring the other.

The former Town star said: “It was good to score, and bad in a way, but I was glad that our fans could see that sort of performance from us.”

The Charlton boss refused to let that incident mar the day and preferred to talk about his side's performance against the Blues.

He said: “First half we were sublime. We have been terrific on the road so it was nice to show the home fans what we can do.

“We had some hairy moments early in the second half but we were catching them on the break and we looked like we could hurt them.”
