Speaking to the South London Press, Charlton Athletic manager Lee Bowyer has said that Brighton and Hove Albion loanee Beram Kayal will get his chance to prove himself, having made no appearances since joining on loan in the transfer window.

So far this season, Charlton Athletic have been almost faultless, winning four games and drawing twice, remaining as one of the three sides to be unbeaten after six games along with Swansea City and West Brom.

Competition for spots in the Addicks midfield has been rife. Darren Pratley, Josh Cullen, Jonny Williams, Jake Forster-Caskey, Conor Gallagher, Erhun Oztumer and Sam Field have all started in the Championship, but loaned in midfielder Beram Kayal is yet to make his debut for the club.

Manager Lee Bowyer has been speaking about Kayal with the South London Press, saying certain players will come into the side depending on who they are playing, adding that Kayal will get his chance.

“Certain games will suit certain players. Sam Field stepped in [last time out against Reading]but Pratley had done nothing wrong – he’s been excellent.

“I just felt for that game it would be better for us if Sam played there. There are going to be occasions when it is the same for Kayal, once we get him back fit.

“The international break will be good for him because he will be involved in a couple of games and also get two weeks of training in as well. Hopefully when he comes back he is a lot fitter.

“He is a good player who has good experience. We are going to need that at times, just like Pratley has been excellent with his experience. Kayal is going to be the same. I’m going to have to rotate the midfield when we play Wednesday-Saturday games because as we saw in the Brentford match it is impossible for them to get through the whole of both games.”
