Charlton’s Chris Solly set for spell on side-lines after suffering concussion during draw at Barnsley


Chris Solly is set to miss Charlton’s home game with Nottingham Forest on Wednesday evening after suffering a concussion during the draw at Barnsley.

The Addicks right-back, who made his 300thappearance for the club at Oakwell, was withdrawn midway through the first-half after a clash of heads with the Tykes’ Ben Williams.

Head injury protocol means that the 28-year-old will now have an enforced spell on the side-lines.

“I think he was out cold before he hit the floor,” explained Addicks boss Lee Bowyer.

“He wasn’t making much sense. He was trying to walk off and say ‘I’ll be OK Bow, I’ll be OK.’ I’m looking at him and thinking you don’t even know where I am! We had to take him off.

“I think it’s a two-week thing. I remember what George (Lapslie) was going through last year. Sols will be out now for a couple of weeks now.”
