Charlton boss provides latest news regarding Lyle Taylor’s injury return

Published

on

Charlton Athletic boss Lee Bowyer has claimed that talisman Lyle Taylor will train with the first team next week ahead of their clash with Middlesbrough on December 7th.

Taylor has not featured for the Addicks since late August after suffering a knee injury while on international duty with Montserrat, but it now appears he is set to step up his recovery as he edges closer to his long-awaited return.

The 29-year-old started the season in excellent form as he netted five goals in his first six games of the campaign, but he has been unable to contribute since with Charlton having started dropping down the Championship table in recent weeks.

Taylor is now one of 11 Addicks players currently nursing an injury problem, and the lack of available players has seen the club drop to 17th place in the Championship after failing to win any of their last six league matches.

However, Bowyer has now been speaking ahead of his side’s clash with Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday, and he has confirmed that Taylor is outside running on the grass as his return continues to draw closer.

“Lyle is outside running, so we hope to have him back with the group training next Thursday ahead of Middlesbrough,” he said via the club Twitter account.

Taylor was a key player during Charlton’s rise to the Championship last season, as he has now scored 30 goals in 51 appearances since completing his move from AFC Wimbledon in the summer of 2018.

The Verdict

Charlton are a team desperately in need of a boost following their recent run of poor form, and it could be the case that Taylor’s long-awaited return provides them with just the lift they need ahead of the festive period.

Taylor has already proven his ability to perform in the Championship this season, and while Macauley Bonne has managed to somewhat fill the 29-year-old’s void, there can be no denying that Taylor has been missed by the Addicks.

It will have been frustrating that Taylor has not made his comeback sooner than this, but Charlton fans can now start to breathe a sigh of relief as it appears his return is now just around the corner.
