The former Blackburn Rovers youngster helped the Shrimps gain promotion from League Two against the odds last season.

Lavelle has started life with the Addicks well and has been a regular since his summer switch. He has also chipped in with a couple of goals from defence already.

What now?

He will now be focused on recovering from his injury and appears likely he has played his last game in 2021.

Charlton brought Jason Pearce on for him against Sunderland last week and the experienced defender could now slot in to cover for Lavelle.

Next up for the Addicks is a home fixture against Doncaster Rovers who make the trip down south just a single place below them in the league table.
