Charlton have had their fair share of injuries this season but one absentee may be proving more crucial than first feared.

The Addicks have fell to their fourth straight defeat on Tuesday as Matty Daly’s injury time strike gave Huddersfield a 1-0 win.

Following defeat both the Lee Bowyer and Charlton supporters felt the one man they missed more than any was Josh Cullen.

The midfielder on loan from West Ham has been sidelined since being stretchered off in the 2-2 draw with Cardiff City on October 23.

That point has proved to be the last the Addicks have picked up this season.

“Josh Cullen, unreal, a massive lost,” a downbeat Bowyer said.

“I was watching us against Derby (3-0 win) last night, you don’t appreciate what he does until you watch it back and now he’s not there.

“He’ll be another month out.

“But I’m sure when we start getting players back we’ll turn the corner.”

With a knee ligament injury ruling Cullen out until the New Year, his manager’s words are quite telling considering the quality of players they’ve had in the treatment room, Lyle Taylor, Jonny Williams, Sam Field, Jake Forster-Caskey, Erhun Oztumer to name a few.

Many Charlton fans echoed their managers feeling on the 23-year-old’s absence.
