Charlton Athletic travel to Plymouth Argyle in League One this weekend.
Charlton Athletic make the trip to Plymouth Argyle on Saturday, for what promises to be another tough outing for Dean Holden’s side who are winless in three going into this one. The Addicks drew away at Peterborough United last time out, after suffering back-to-back defeats against Derby County and Sheffield Wednesday respectively.
And a trip to Plymouth sees this tough run of fixtures extend for Charlton, who remain without some important first-team players.
Speaking to the club ahead of this weekend, Holden gave updates on Steven Sessegnon and Scott Fraser, saying:
“Sess hasn’t trained today. We’ll assess where he’s at tomorrow and the same with Scotty Fraser who didn’t train [On Thursday].”
Both Sessegnon and Fraser played against Posh but both were withdrawn in the second half, and both now seem to be doubts for the game v Plymouth. Elsewhere, January arrival Todd Kane still only has one appearance to his name for Charlton, having missed the last few weeks with a hamstring injury.
Holden said of the 29-year-old:
“Todd’s still a couple of weeks away from joining the group. It was a tricky sort of injury. He’s going in the right direction but it’s just a timeframe for Todd.”
And Holden also revealed that Mandela Egbo is set to feature for Charlton’s U21 side this week, having been sidelined since October with a quad injury.
A tough game…
Charlton have come into a really tough run of fixtures, but after this Plymouth game they have some winnable fixtures on the horizon.
The Addicks go into this one in 13th place of the table and Plymouth in 2nd, so the south coast club will be counting on a win against an out of sorts Charlton side on Saturday.
Holden has some difficult injuries to contend with, especially in the defensive department, so he’ll be counting on Charlton’s squad depth to see the team through to the March international break.
Saturday’s game kicks off at 3pm.
