Charlton suffer injury blow ahead of weekend



Charlton Athletic forward Andre Green looks set to be a doubt for their clash with Blackburn Rovers at The Valley this weekend.

South London Press reported the news after he missed the midweek win against Nottingham Forest and underwent a scan on Wednesday as Charlton seek answers about the forward’s knee injury.

On the injury, Addicks manager Lee Bowyer said: “He has got a slight problem and we don’t really know what it is.

“He had a cyst, or something like that, and there is some discomfort there.

“Hopefully it [the scan] doesn’t come back too bad.

“He was involved at Stoke. He woke up the morning of Stoke and said his knee felt sore. We’d trained the day before and he was fine. He’d trained all week and been fine.

“He managed to play the Stoke game and after that it was a bit sore. We had to take a precaution then, we left him behind and let him get ready for the weekend.

Is Leon Cort still playing?

“He’d been doing a bit of rehab stuff, he’d been outside running. The first day was okay running and the next day he felt it a bit. That’s why he has gone for a scan.”

Green has scored two goals in six appearances for Charlton since joining on loan from Aston Villa until the end of the season in the January transfer window.

The 21-year-old had been on loan at Preston North End for the first half of the season but scored just one goal in six appearances as he struggled to break into their starting XI.

Green isn’t the only Charlton forward who has picked up an injury lately with Lyle Taylor and Macauley Bonne both spending time on the sidelines over the festive period.

The Addicks are currently 19th in the league table and embroiled in a relegation battle with their win over Nottingham Forest taking them six points away from the drop zone.

The Verdict

Green has had a good start to his career at The Valley after joining on loan and he has been able to step up in the absence of Taylor and Bonne.

He will be a big loss to Charlton no matter how long he is out for and Bowyer will be hoping that he returns to fitness sooner rather than later as they look to crawl further away from the bottom three.
