‘Very vulnerable’, ‘Seriously missing’ – Many Charlton fans left pining for duo following Burton shock

Published

Charlton Athletic were beaten 4-2 by relegation strugglers Burton Albion last night and many Addicks fans have been left pining for absent defenders Ryan Innis and Akin Famewo. 

The summer signings have quickly become a key men for Lee Bowyer but are currently sidelined due to injury, with Charlton forced to name midfielder Darren Pratley and full-back Chris Gunter at centre-back for the last two games.

The Addicks claimed a point against Gillingham on the weekend but were handed a shock defeat at the hands of relegation-battling Burton yesterday – conceding four times against a side that had won once in League One ahead of last night’s game.

Mistakes from Gunter and goalkeeper Ben Amos allowed the hosts to take a two-goal lead at the Pirelli Stadium before Paul Smyth pulled one back ahead of the break.

Sam Hughes re-established Burton’s two-goal cushion early in the second half before strikes from Chuks Aneke and Charles Vernam ensure the game ended 4-2 to the Brewers.

Speaking to London News Online earlier this week, Bowyer refused to put an exact date on Innis’ return but suggested the central defender will be missing for “a little while”.

There was better news concerning Famewo, however, as it is understood that the Norwich City loanee is back out running again.
