Robbie Keane admitted that he suspected a comeback was unlikely when the team fell two goals behind against Charlton on Saturday.

Robbie Keane admitted that he suspected a comeback was unlikely when the team fell two goals behind against Charlton on Saturday.

The boys went in at the break a goal behind following Darren Bent's strike on 25 minutes, an advantage that was doubled by the England squad man just three minutes into the second period.

Ledley King's reply a few moments later completely changed the complexion of the game and Mido and Robbie ensured the points were added to our account with fine goals.

"I was talking to Michael Dawson at half-time and said usually when we go a goal down we don't come back, we either draw or lose the game".

This time we came back to win and that will give the lads a lot of confidence

Short of time due to having a flight to catch for international duty with the Republic of Ireland, Robbie concluded by saying the gaining of a positive result is the ideal way to head into the break from Premiership combat.

"It is and it keeps us hovering around near the top. We have a couple of weeks break now and it is always nice when you go away to get a good win under your belts first."
