Charlton team news: Lee Bowyer has key men unavailable

Charlton Athletic will be looking to bounce back from their midweek defeat when they meet Coventry City at The Valley on Saturday.

The Addicks were beaten 5-3 by Scunthorpe United on Tuesday night bringing their run of six games unbeaten in League One to a halt.

Lee Bowyer lamented the mistakes his side made at the back and will be looking for the team to make an immediate improvement when the Ricoh Arena outfit come to the capital.

However, things could be difficult for the London side as the club’s official website has announced that they will be without a number of players for the fixture.

Lewis Page is unavailable after he picked up a groin injury against Scunthorpe in the midweek game, whilst Darren Pratley will need to serve a one-match ban after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season.

Patrick Bauer and Jake Forster-Caskey remain sidelined, whilst Billy Clarke has only just returned to training and the visit of Coventry is likely to have come too quickly for him.

However, Bowyer may be able to call upon Arsenal loanee Krystian Bielik and Jamie Ward, who joined the club on a temporary deal from Nottingham Forest, as both are available.

The Verdict:

Charlton will be looking to put things right on Saturday when they meet Coventry at The Valley.

The Addicks were disappointing in their last outing and will be looking to get back to the form they had prior to the defeat at Glanford Park.

Coventry currently sit mid-table in League One, however, Bowyer will know his side will need to be at their very best to ensure they get a positive result and keep their charge going for a promotion spot back into the Championship.
