Stephy Mavididi has been ruled out for eight weeks with a hamstring injury.
The Arsenal attacker, on loan at the Valley until the end of the season, was forced off in the Addicks’ 3-2 defeat to Oxford United last weekend.
Yesterday, Karl Robinson told News Shopper he hoped to know more about Mavdidi’s problem in the next 24 hours – and it’s not good news.
A club statement said: “Stephy Mavididi sustained an injury to his left hamstring during Saturday’s game against Oxford United.
“The injury is the same side as the one he had last season, however, it is in a different place and not a repeat of the same injury.
“He has seen a specialist this week and the rehabilitation will be slightly more prolonged due to his previous injury and at this stage the tentative timescale has been set at around eight weeks.
“Our medical team are currently in close liaison with the medical team at Arsenal regarding his treatment and rehabilitation.”
