Ben Reeves will miss the start of the season after suffering an Achilles injury.
The Charlton attacker was left playing catch-up last season when he only signed shortly before the League One campaign started.
And now Reeves has got a small tear in his left Achilles which will sideline him for the beginning of the 2018-19 season.
He told Charlton’s official website: “I’m gutted and really frustrated. I’d done a lot of work during the summer to try and make sure that I was ready for the start of pre-season. I was determined to come back in the best possible condition and to pick up an injury a couple of days into it is so gutting.
“Hopefully I can get myself back out onto the pitch as quickly as possible and I’ll be doing everything I can to make sure that is the case.”
