Charlton manager Karl Robinson is aware of the threat ex-Addicks striker Joe Pigott poses ahead of their trip to AFC Wimbledon on Saturday.

The Dons signed Pigott, a product of Charlton’s renowned academy, in January after his prolific spell with Maidstone United. He has scored twice in nine appearances for his new club.

The 24-year-old forward, who failed to hold down a regular starting spot at the Valley, faces the Addicks for the first time since his release in 2016.

Robinson watched Pigott turn out for Maidstone against MK Dons in the FA Cup earlier this season.

He told News Shopper: “[Head of recruitment] Steve Gallen was at the Wimbledon vs Blackburn game on Tuesday.

“He said he [Pigott] played really well when he came on at half-time.

“I went to watch Maidstone vs MK Dons in the FA Cup and he played in that game. He looked a bit of a threat.

“He’s big and aggressive in what he does. His movement isn't too bad and he’s not bad in the air.

“He’s a good player and a good signing for Wimbledon. It’s one of those games where I’m sure he’ll be looking forward to it more than anybody else.”

Pigott failed to score in 12 league appearances for Charlton.
