None of Charlton’s injured players are expected to return against Bury on Saturday.

But star man Tariqe Fosu, who has been sidelined with a quad problem since November, could be back in less than two weeks.

The Addicks were without Jason Pearce, Chris Solly, Patrick Bauer and Jake Forster-Caskey for large parts of the festive period.

And Karlan Ahearne-Grant added to the club’s injury woes after going off with a hamstring complaint in the Checkatrade Trophy defeat to Oxford United last night.

Charlton boss Karl Robinson said: “It seems to be the question in all of our press conferences ‘who’ll be back?’ Right now no [one will return against Bury].

“Karlan injured his hamstring. It’s not as bad as we thought. I made the decision to take him off. It just tightened up.

“That’s why [Ahmed] Kashi and Josh [Magennis] came off because we’ve got a big game on Saturday.

“By Shrewsbury, we’d like to think the likes of Pearcey, Solls and certainly Tariqe [will be back].”

Despite missing nearly three months of action, Fosu is still Charlton’s top scorer with seven goals.
