Charlton boss Karl Robinson believes Chris Solly and Ahmed Kashi are fit enough to play three games a week.

First-team skipper Solly missed a large part of the 2013/14 campaign with a serious knee injury and has been rested for midweek fixtures in the past.

Midfield rock Kashi has been plagued by achilles problems since joining the club in 2015. He returned to full fitness in the summer and, like Solly, has started every league game this season.

The pair featured against Southend, Wigan and Gillingham in the space of seven days, suggesting any injury concerns are behind them.

Robinson told News Shopper: “Yeah, they [Solly and Kashi] can play three games a week. The biggest problem we have is that we’re a high energy team.

“We attack quick, we defend quick, we play forward quick. And what that calls upon is rotation of players.

“I’ve never been an advocate of rotating your back four or midfield.

“But with your front four, you should be able to rotate because I’m asking for more physical output from those forward positions. But right now, we just don't have players fit to rotate that top end of the pitch.

“And maybe that can look down to some sort of performance levels slightly decreasing. The energy we play with is hard to sustain three games a week so once we get all our players back, they’ll be fine.

“The likes of Solls and Kashi - I don't think they performed badly, but it was certainly a learning curve to see how it affected their bodies going into the games.

“We learned an awful lot from the data. To be fair to them this week, they've trained really hard on Tuesday which was important, as well.”
