Charlton boss hoping defender’s tight hamstring down to miles clocked up on the road

Charlton manager Lee Bowyer is hoping Akin Famewo’s complaints of a tight hamstring are just down to the travelling that his side have done in recent weeks.

The on-loan Norwich City centre-back has recently returned to the side after missing a big chunk of the campaign.

And Famewo appeared to pull up slightly chasing a ball down Oxford’s left flank in the first half of Saturday’s 0-0 draw. Despite that he managed to complete a third 90 minutes in a row.

“He said after the game that his hamstring was a little bit tight,” said Bowyer. “But if you’ve got something wrong with the hamstring then you don’t get through a game – you’re done.

“I’m hoping it is just neural from his back with the amount of travelling we have done, that has been crazy of late. I’ll find out more today.”

Adam Matthews is a doubt for tomorrow’s home game against Northampton after coming off at the weekend with a hamstring injury.

Darren Pratley is available after serving his two-match ban.
