Charlton defender not being prepped for first-team return yet

By Richard Cawley

Charlton manager Karl Robinson is not planning to draft Lewis Page back into his matchday squad – despite the injury-hit defender chaining matches together for the under-23 team.

The left-back was signed from West Ham United just over a year ago but has endured a luckless streak with injuries.

But Pages had been back in action for a number of weeks now.

“I just think at this moment we have got to keep him playing 23s rather than being a sub here and sub there,” explained Robinson. “Jay Dasilva has been unbelievable.

“And there are other players who have done a great turn for me. Harry Lennon can go to left-back and I know Naby Sarr can certainly go to left-back.

“Pagey has got to wait for his opportunity and when it comes along he has got to take it.”
