CHARLTON manager Chris Powell is prepared to allow some of his fringe players to go out on loan.
The Addicks now have a largely fully fit squad, with most long and short term injured players seemingly recovered.
Powell is delighted he has a large selection of talent to choose from but accepts keeping everyone happy may not be easy.
“Possibly we could let a few go, possibly on loan,” he said.
“I want us to be strong.
“We’ve had to change players through injury and suspension along with loss of form this season.
“But I looked at my team last week against Blackburn, looked at my bench and thought ‘we are quite strong’.
“Even if I have to make changes I am still confident we are strong enough to compete.”
Like most managers, Powell is not a fan of the January transfer window, although losing key players doesn’t seem to be a realistic worry this month.
But with at least two players for every position now at The Valley, there is a very good chance not everyone will be happy with the amount of game time they are getting.
Powell said: “Players coming back from injury means we have a nice big squad now.
“I am happy to give the youngsters a go, but I don’t want to expose them to games when they are not ready.
“If I have to move one or two players on, or if they express a desire to go out on loan, then I will look into it.
“It is a case of looking at your whole squad and just tinkering with it, really.
“Can I add a player here to improve us? Can we let this player go?
“You have to be calm and composed, otherwise you make mistakes.
“It is certainly not a time to panic.”
