Charlton defender Lewis Page has returned to first-team training.

Page, 21, has been plagued by injuries since signing from West Ham in January.

The left-back picked up a hamstring problem in March, and suffered a setback in the summer which ruled him out for a further four months.

But Addicks boss Karl Robinson says Page has returned to first-team training during the international break.

He told News Shopper: “He’s back in full training. We’re hoping he’s going to start on Monday against QPR at the Valley in the Under-23s game.

“He played 45 minutes last Saturday [in an inter-squad game] so it’s just about us getting that right now. He’s been out for a long time.

“I can motivate you and keep your spirits high, but you’ve got to find something within you that separates you. He’s had a difficult time. It either makes or breaks him.

“It’s as simple as that. That’s the harsh reality of the industry. He’s a really good kid. I need to be fair to his rehabilitation.

“He’s another player to add to the squad, we've now got two left-backs. So we’re back up and running in that area.

“When Jay Dasilva goes on international duty, we’ll have a left-back already in the building. It’s really positive and it’s where we want to be with two players in each position.”
