‘Way too soon’ – Some Charlton fans think recently returning ace shouldn’t be rushed back v Blackburn this weekend

Published

on

Charlton Athletic’s Macauley Bonne hasn’t played this year.

The 24-year-old has been sidelined with a hamstring injury but made his return to the first-team when he was unused substitute against Nottingham Forest in midweek.

Lee Bowyer’s side next host Blackburn Rovers in the Championship tomorrow, and with Andre Green injured there might be a return to action for Bonne.

The summer signing from Leyton Orient has proved to be a hit at The Valley, scoring eight goals in 19 league appearances this season, and filling in suitably when Lyle Taylor was injured in the first-half of the campaign.

Charlton were a club plagued by injuries but they seem to be coming out of the worst of it now.

Who is this Charlton flop?

We asked Charlton fans of the Facebook group Charlton Athletic FC (The unofficial & uncensored Charlton fans’ group) whether they think Bonne should start tomorrow, and here’s what they said:

Dave Warren: With Green injured then yes.

Lee Fender: He wouldn’t be match fit to start after so long, needs to be a sub though.

Graham Fox: Yes for Hemed.

Jason Bradley: No, Hemed and Taylor. Bonne isn’t anywhere near match fit, can’t be starting yet it’s way too soon.

Darrell Bond: Keep Bonne for the last 30 minutes to give him a run out.

Lewis Vandercom: People moan about the amount of injuries we get but want players rushed back as soon as they kick a ball.

Will Devanney: I believe we have two better strikers on the bench than Hemed, and one should start over him on Saturday.
