Lee Bowyer has revealed the trio of Charlton players not currently wanting to play when the season gets back up and running later this month, with Lyle Taylor among the three.
The Addicks were obviously wanting to play out the season on the pitch in order to get themselves out of trouble and they have been boosted in being given June 20th as a restart date for the Championship.
However, it appears as though they might have to start playing games without their key striker Lyle Taylor, as well as Chris Solly and David Davis.

Bowyer was talking to talkSPORT, and had this to say about the trio’s respective decisions:
“3 players say they won’t play.” ❌
“Lyle Taylor is one of them. Chris Solly is the same and so is David Davis.” 🙏

Bowyer appears to be respectful towards the decisions being made by the players and now he’ll look to work with those that do want to play for the Addicks between now and the end of the campaign.
You can see where Taylor and the like are coming from if they see their future away from the club but, even so, it is a bitter pill for fans to take and deal with and it’s not a particularly great look.
Charlton will battle on without them, though, and supporters will rally round the players that do take to the pitch.
