It’s been a mixed bag for the Arsenal loanee since joining Charlton in the summer but he has been largely reliable and consistent.

Being hooked off after just 45 minutes in the defeat to Rochdale will have stung Krystian Bielik, a lowlight he is reluctant to dwell on.

Lee Bowyer has shifted him around a little as well – sometimes deploying him as a holding midfielder in a diamond shape while also sticking him in at centre half.

Bielik, who prefers to play as a centre back, has been forced to adapt though performances have shown him to be a key figure when fit.

He has started every league game except for two and got himself on the scoresheet twice, featuring in some of Charlton’s most important results during this winning run.

And what’s more is that helping to secure clean sheets against tough opponents in Barnsley, Doncaster Rovers and Walsall are worth mentioning, too.

Bowyer has only just really had Patrick Bauer back following his knee injury but Bielik has been a capable replacement for last season’s mainstay figure in defence.

The key now is to see whether the defender can push for a consistent starting spot – either at the back or in midfield.

It’ll be tough for him considering the competition in front of him for either position, and it’ll be a case of demonstrating why he deserves to play every game as he desires.
