Charlton Athletic midfielder Joe Aribo says he is enjoying his scoring form after netting his fourth goal in as many games against Doncaster Rovers over the weekend.

The England-born Nigerian player scored once as the Addicks defeated Doncaster Rovers 2-1 in the English Football League (EFL) League One first-leg of the playoff semi-final on Sunday.

Aribo, who was born in London, discussed his amazing goal celebration.

“It’s called ‘the wall’, but me, Naby [Sarr] and Anfernee [Dijksteel] just thought about doing something and then that’s what we thought of because we’ve been seeing it a lot on social media," Aribo said.

"It’s not the first time that Aribo has shown that his dancefloor form is as good as his on pitch form and each goal brings new moves.

“I like to change it up and then you can see what different talents I have, what different dances I’ve got. I feel like when you score you’ve just got to in a way let yourself go and that lets you enjoy the goal a little bit more.”

And speaking on his current form in front of goal, Aribo is clearly ecstatic.

He said with a smile: “Four goals in four. Loving it!”

Athletic will take on Rovers in the second-leg clash on Friday and the winner on aggregate will take on either Portsmouth or Sunderland in the final.
