Lyle Taylor caps off an interesting week by returning to his former club looking to end Charlton’s winless streak and to push the Dons closer to the relegation trapdoor.

Outspoken fan favourite Taylor may have been praised by the Addicks faithful for his ‘choice’ words towards owner Roland Duchatelet, and manager Lee Bowyer admitted it caught him off-guard.

“It did surprise me!” said the Charlton boss.

“I’ve spoken to Lyle about it and I’ve dealt with it.

“He knows how I feel about the situation, he knows he was wrong, but we’ve dealt with it and knows not to do anything like that again.

“He knows that.”

One Booking Away

Taylor returned to action last Saturday in the goalless draw with Blackpool after serving a three-match suspension for a red card at home against Accrington Stanley, the last match Charlton won.

This weekend sees the 28-year-old forward travelling to his former stomping ground Kingsmeadow where he is again walking a suspension tightrope.

Being just one booking away from having to sit out two games for amassing ten cautions this season, Charlton’s top goal scorer has been warned by the manager to tread carefully.

“He plays on the edge, and that’s when he’s playing his best.

“I’ll be telling him again not to get involved with anything stupid.

“Saturday’s booking (against Blackpool) was harsh for me, I think he’s getting targeted.

“A lot of the things he’s getting booked for their players don’t, whoever we are playing.

“I definitely believe he’s getting targeted for whatever reason.

“Maybe because he’s a physical lad and the way he plays, but that’s the way I tell him to play,

“Last thing we need is to lose him for another two games.”
