With Charlton not involved in the FA Cup this weekend, Lee Bowyer has given his players time-off.

But one player who will be turning up to the training complex in Sparrows Lane is midfielder Josh Cullen.

Eager to return to full fitness following two months on the sideline, the West Ham loanee revealed he won’t be putting his feet up despite playing a full 90 minute in his return to action in the goalless draw with Fulham on Wednesday night.

“I’ll be in,” the 23-year-old said.

“I’ve only trained four times the last week, twice before Preston and twice before Fulham, Monday and Tuesday this week.

“So I’ll be in Friday and Saturday training trying to get back up to fitness.

“I know I still have work to do to get back to where I want to be.”

Before suffering an ankle ligament injury in the 2-2 draw with Cardiff in November, Cullen was close to his peak, and although he came through a tough encounter against a quality Fulham side unscathed, he still feels there’s some way to go.

“You can train as much as you want, I’ve had 4 sessions and to go into a match which is hard to replicate against a good Fulham side who are good t keeping the ball, it’s tough.

“But I feel good, I feel ok, and I think I’ll benefit from the game and the 90 minutes, getting my match sharpness back, and getting back to the level I was at before the injury.”

 Despite teetering above the relegation zone, Cullen feels the point was very much a point gained as opposed to two dropped.

“We have to respect Fulham, they’re a top side with good players so to get a point we are happy with that.

“We have to now make it a good point with the fixtures coming up, capitalise and get back to winning a few games as well.

“As a group we just have to push on.”
