Danny Murphy belives Matt Holland's return to fitness will boost his game.Danny Murphy believes the return to fitness of Matt Holland could help him produce the type of form that once made him an England international.
The former Liverpool schemer arrived at The Valley in a £2.5 million summer move but failed to produce his best form in the early part of this season.
However, against Newcastle at the weekend, Murphy partnered Matt Holland for the first time in The Addicks' engine room - in a move he believed reaped dividends.
''I was pleased with my own fitness, it's the best I've felt this season and I think it showed towards the end of the game,'' Murphy told the club's official website.
''It was great to be alongside Matty. He's a quality player.
''He's an international footballer and it's going to show when he's not available.
''For someone who played his first full Premiership game in nearly five months he did remarkably well.
''The communication is a lot easier as we're both used to life in the centre.
''He knows to stay when I go forward and vice-versa, so there is a good variation in our play.''
