Charlton Athletic certainly lost a lot of firepower when they sold Karlan Grant to Huddersfield Town in the January transfer window.
Thanks to Lyle Taylor, though, the south London club still look good up front with the Montserrat international spearheading a promotion charge.
Still, Charlton could probably do with another frontman going forward, and may not have to look too far.
Should they make a return to the Championship, Lee Bowyer is likely to have the funds required to bring in a striker of that division’s level.
But if not, Reeco Hackett-Fairchild could be a good option as the Addicks potentially gear up for another season in League One.
The 21-year-old has impressed while out on loan at Bromley, and has since spoken about his desire eventually break into Bowyer’s starting XI.
“My aim is always to get into the Charlton first team and it’s up to me to work as hard as I can,” Hackett-Fairchild was recently quoted as saying by News Shopper.
“Charlton is my club but my immediate job and focus is to help Bromley. If I can draw attention through my performances then that’s all the better.”
With Josh Parker’s short-term contract up at the end of the season, there could be space in Bowyer’s squad for Hackett-Fairchild.
And while the Championship may perhaps come too soon for a striker like him in Bowyer’s eyes, the English forward should get ready in case Charlton remain in League 1, something that his loan spell at Hayes Lane is helping him to do.
