Charlton boss Karl Robinson is planning to rest star striker Josh Magennis.

Magennis has not been substituted in his 14 games for the Addicks and Northern Ireland this season.

He faces a gruelling two-legged World Cup play-off against Switzerland next month.

Robinson says Magennis will get a week off to recharge his batteries - but the Charlton boss would not reveal when.

He told News Shopper: “We’ve pencilled in another big break for the team where Josh will get six days [off] going into a certain game.

“He’ll go away on the Saturday night, get his feet up, and he’ll come back on the Friday and sit on the bench on the Saturday. And that will be him getting a massive rest.

“He’ll come back a different character.”

Magennis and Joe Dodoo are Charlton’s only senior strikers.

But Dodoo is yet to start for the Addicks since joining on loan from Rangers on transfer deadline day.

Robinson has told Magennis when he’ll be rested, which could give Dodoo or Billy Clarke the opportunity to play as the number nine.

The Liverpudlian added: “This [planning] is all part of a manager that can be at a club for a longer period, not three or four weeks.

“But you can plan this and the players know when their break and rest is coming and when they have to hit certain fitness levels.

“Josh will get it [the break] but he won’t burnout. He’s a beast, a machine. He knows when his break will be.”
