Charlton Athletic boss Nathan Jones shares selection update on 28-year-old ahead of Fleetwood Town trip

Charlton Athletic boss Nathan Jones has said Lloyd Jones has trained ‘fully’ this week.

Charlton Athletic are back in League One action this weekend with an away trip to Fleetwood Town.

Jones, 28, sat out last time out as the Addicks won 3-2 at home to Carlisle United.

In this latest update regarding his condition, his manager has said, as per the official club website: “We pulled Lloyd [Jones] out because we had [Michael] Hector coming back. We obviously play with three centre-halves and stuff anyway, and we had [Nathan] Asiimwe that can fill in.

“Lloyd had a little niggle that we sorted out. He needed an injection – an easy injection – and we managed to give it to him then to free him up so he could train fully this week.”

Who is this?

Jones gives Charlton another option to pick from in defence as they look to keep their momentum going.

The Addicks landed the centre-back last summer and he has since slotted in nicely into their squad.

He has made 36 appearances for the London club in all competitions, 32 of which have come in the league, and he has scored twice from the back.

The Plymouth-born man penned a two-year deal when he moved to The Valley on a free transfer last June.

Jones started out at local side Plymouth Argyle before moving up north as a youngster to join Liverpool. He never played for the first-team an Anfield but had loan spells away from Merseyside at Cheltenham, Accrington Stanley, Blackpool and Swindon Town to gain experience.

He then had permanent stints at Luton Town, Northampton Town and Cambridge United before joining his current club.

Charlton have seen an upturn in form since turning to ex-Luton, Stoke City and Southampton boss Jones to replace Michael Appleton.

They looked to be in serious relegation trouble but have since risen up the table after some solid results. The Addicks will be eager to end this campaign on a high before preparing for the summer.
