Charlton Athletic boss provides Lyle Taylor update ahead of Cardiff City match

BY RICHARD CAWLEY

Lee Bowyer reckons it will be a late call whether Lyle Taylor is fit to feature in Charlton’s home game against Cardiff City on Saturday.

The Addicks frontman has been out since the end of August. A red-hot scoring run of fives goals in the opening six Championship matches was ended when he suffered knee ligament damage while on international duty with Montserrat.

Taylor recently needed an injection which pushed back his return schedule. It had been hoped he would be able to play some role against Preston North End earlier this month. Instead the striker missed that fixture and also the 2-1 loss at Millwall.

“He’s got a bit of tightness somewhere and it’s just going to be a case of trying to manage him this week and seeing how he goes,” said Charlton boss Bowyer. “Whether he makes it or not is touch and go.

“I’m going to try everything in my power to try and get him ready.”
