Charlton Athletic striker Lyle Taylor has send a loving message to teammate Jonny Williams as the pair both continue to recover from recent injury setbacks.
Taylor has missed the club’s last nine games whilst Williams recently underwent surgery on a knee issue of his own but the duo seemed in high spirits as they arrived at work on Friday morning.
Posting a video on his Instagram story, Taylor filmed the Welshman from his car, writing alongside the clip: “This kid just makes me smile man.”
Prior to picking up his knock, Taylor had notched five goals in the club’s opening six games as the Addicks made a quick start to life back in the second tier.
And whilst he is nearing the end of his recovery period, Lee Bowyer admitted on Thursday that Saturday’s derby clash with Millwall will come too soon for him.
Can you get 15 out of 15 on this Charlton quiz? Have a go now!
Williams penned a contract extension in the summer after helping Bowyer’s side to promotion last season and has gone on to contributing five assists in 12 games before being sidelined.
A win against Millwall could see Charlton climb back into the top-six if other results go their way, currently sat three points behind sixth-placed Bristol City.
It is great to see the pair in high spirits despite their injury troubles and I am sure it will encourage the fans a lot as well to see them both laughing.
The form of the team in their absence will have helped as well, with Macauley Bonne filling in brilliantly for Taylor whilst Erhun Oztumer is growing into the place left by Williams.
