Charlton Athletic man available to face Cheltenham Town after Northampton Town omission

Charlton Athletic boss Nathan Jones has said Chuks Aneke was left out against Northampton Town to ensure he is fit to face Cheltenham Town.

Charlton Athletic are back in League One action with an away trip to the Completely-Suzuki Stadium to face the Robins.

Aneke, 30, will be fresh and ready to play after sitting out last time out against the Cobblers.

Jones has provided this update on his situation, as per the official club website: “He felt his calf was stiff after Tuesday night [at Derby]. There was no point risking him because we want him ready for Tuesday [at Cheltenham].”

Having Aneke is a boost for Charlton and he gives them something different in attack.

He is also vastly experienced and that know-how will come in handy for the Addicks as they look to avoid relegation to League Two.

The London club are sat in 18th position in the table and have started to pick up more results over recent times under the guidance of Jones. They are four points above the drop zone with 10 games left to play.

Aneke missed a few months through injury earlier this season and his absence was felt.

He re-joined the club back in 2022 after a brief spell at Birmingham City and has since scored eight goals in 39 games, building on the 17 in 61 he fired during his first stint at The Valley.

Aneke is an Arsenal academy graduate and played once for their first-team as a youngster, as well as having plenty of loan spells away from the Gunners at Stevenage, Preston North End and Crewe Alexandra to boost his development.

He then left the Emirates Stadium permanently and played for Zulte Waregem and MK Dons before making Charlton his home.
