Lee Bowyer gave a breakdown of the current state of his injury hit squad.

Lyle Taylor and Chuks Aneke are both likely to return for the weekend’s fixture at Middlesbrough, meaning the medical staff’s attention could now turn to those still in the treatment room.

The Addicks boss gave run down of where he feels the players are with regards to a return.

Jonny Williams

Williams has been out since the end of October when he was forced off the field in the 3-0 win over Derby with a knee injury, coincidentally it was the Addicks last win. It’s thought the Welshman would be out until the end of the month but Bowyer is hopeful he will be able to play some part next week.

“Jonny we are hopeful he’ll be back in and around the squad next week,” Bowyer said.

“He’s outside running but not ready to come back just yet but hopefully he’ll be back for Hull (Friday 13th).

Tomer Hemed

News Shopper:

“Tomer, he’s got a slight groin strain, he came back and came off the bench and broke down that’s why he’s been out.

“Now he’s outside again running trying to get his fitness up before he comes back to us because the intensity is high in training.”

Beram Kayal

On loan from Brighton the Israeli has only managed two starts for the Addicks since arriving in the summer.

Reports suggest the 31-year-old is to undergo surgery on a niggling groin injury, although Bowyer was hopeful he would return sooner rather than later.

“Kayal is back at (parent club) Brighton getting treatment there.

“Last international break he got injured, he’s had an injection and hopefully he’s not too long out.”

Josh Cullen

News Shopper:

The on-loan West Ham man was stretchered off in the 2-2 draw with Cardiff in early November with a knee ligament damage.

“Josh will be out weeks and weeks, he won’t be back before Christmas,” Bowyer said.

Jake Forster-Caskey

Forster-Caskey pulled up with a hamstring injury in the Bristol City fixture at the end of October and is expected to be out for “a good few weeks” according to Bowyer.

Jason Pearce

News Shopper:

Captain Pearce was left on the bench in last weekend's 3-1 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday, prompting suggestions injury had struck the man who was kept out for a large chunk of last season's campaign through injury. Bowyer however revealed it was precautionary and was done to avoid such events. 

"He's good," he said.

"Jason played Saturday and then Tuesday, he played 90 minutes in both games.

"We all know he puts his body on the line and gives everything all game, if we played him last Saturday there was a chane he'd get injured.

"He did nothing wrong we were just tryign to prevent another injury."
