Darren Ambrose has urged Charlton to improve their home form.Charlton midfielder Darren Ambrose has accepted that The Addicks' home form must improve if they are to maintain their push for a European place.
Alan Curbishley's side have won all of their away games in The Premiership, but they have struggled at The Valley, earning just four points from five games.
Ambrose, who joined from Newcastle in the summer, believes that Charlton have the talent to qualify for Europe, but must sort out their patchy performances at The Valley immediately.
"The manager has built up a fantastic squad here," Ambrose insisted.
"If we can translate our away form into our home form, then I don't think there are many teams who can live with us.
"The likes of Bolton and Everton got into Europe last year. We have started well, and we need to be European contenders ourselves."
Ambrose has had a miserable time so far this season, missing games through injury and suspension, but, with fellow winger Jerome Thomas struggling to shake off a bruised foot, the 21-year-old now has his chance to impress.
"After the things that happened to me in the first part of the season, your confidence goes a little bit.
"Obviously people have been trying to keep me going. It worked and I think I went out there against Portsmouth and did prove a point."
