Ryan Inniss is set to play competitive minutes for Charlton Athletic’s U23 side next week as he looks to take a significant step towards a first-team return.
A quad injury has ruled the former Crystal Palace centre-back out since the end of August.
There had been talk that Inniss could feature in yesterday’s development fixture at Reading. But Addicks caretaker manager Johnnie Jackson said: “We’ll try and get him some minutes next week.
“We want him to have another full week of training with the group. He has been back with the group since Monday of last week. He has done a week and we want him to get another week. He has been out a long time and needs to get a body of training behind him before he can build up to games.
“If he goes into a 23s game with two weeks training then we’ll be happy with that. Then we can start pushing him on.”
Inniss mised 27 matches last season with a quad issue.
