Lee Bowyer faces a challenge he’s yet to have this season as Blackburn travel to The Valley on Saturday.

Picking from a near fully-fit squad.

With the injury crisis seemingly over and all long-term injuries healed, Lewis Page aside, the Charlton boss has a dilemma of who to leave out.

On the back of a 1-0 win over Nottingham Forest mid-week there’s changes to be expected for Blackburn’s visit as they look to climb away from the bottom three.

“We’ve got numbers that we can rest!” a bemused Bowyer said.

“It’s a bit of luxury, nice to have.

“We left Jonny and Andre behind on Tuesday, now there’s a chance they’ll come back in and be fresh and ready for Saturday.”

Despite having riches to choose from, the manager insisted they’re still taking cautions with a number of players as they look to get back up to speed without any further breakdown as has been the case in a season which has seen up to 15 first team players injured at one time.

“Most are back, there’s not many that are out.

“The most important thing is balancing their minutes.

“We need to look after them as best we can.

“Tuesday at Forest Lyle (Taylor) was getting back to where he was before injury, he’s a robust player that needs to play to get to where he needs to be, I know Lyle’s getting in a good place.“

Despite the now bulging squad, Bowyer confirmed there’ll be no more of his young squad going out on loan after Ben Dempsey and Ashley Maynard-Brewer’s moves to Woking and Dover Athletic respectively.

“A couple of clubs have come in for the younger lads but we need to make sure we get through the next three weeks without any injuries and then reassess, but as we stand no others are going out on loan.”
