Karl Robinson is hoping to have four of his injured players back for Saturday’s home game against Portsmouth.
The match has a celebratory touch as the Addicks celebrate their 25th anniversary of returning to The Valley. That landmark was today.
Ahmed Kashi missed Sunday’s 3-1 FA Cup defeat to AFC Wimbledon due to stiffness in his ankle. A heel problem kept the Algerian out for the best part of 18 months until he returned to first-team action this season.
But Robinson is expecting Kashi, Billy Clarke, Ben Reeves and Chris Solly to be available for Pompey.
“Kashi is just having a scan to clarify it is nothing serious,” said Robinson. “We will go from there.
“He felt his ankle stiffen up in the game against Peterborough.”
