HAVING sustained a metatarsal injury against former club Crystal Palace in mid-September, it was fitting Rhoys Wiggins returned to action for the first time against the same club on Saturday.

The full-back was a second half substitute in the 2-1 defeat to the Eagles.

Danny Haynes, recently sidelined by a hamstring problem, also entered the fray in the closing stages.

DANNY Green and Bradley Wright-Phillips remained Charlton players this week despite passing medicals at League One side Swindon Town on transfer-deadline day.

The two players travelled to Wiltshire last Thursday, but the Robins later announced that “The Football League has at this stage refused any new registrations and the deals cannot be completed”.

Powell said last week that he was ‘very close’ to completing one or two deals for new players but saw no reason to rush with the loan window due to reopen at the end of this week.

Danny Hollands last week returned to Sparrows Lane from his loan spell at Swindon Town to receive treatment for a foot injury.

His loan with the Robins was due to expire after Town’s match on Saturday.
