Charlton boss Lee Bowyer explains absence of Chuks Aneke


Lee Bowyer has confirmed that Chuks Aneke is fit – with the summer signing from Milton Keynes not making his matchday 18.

The 26-year-old attacker, snapped up on a free transfer, has had his injury issues this campaign and last featured at the start of November.

“Chuks is fit but all our attacking players – apart from Jonny Williams – are fit,” said Addicks boss Bowyer.

“I’ve got Lyle [Taylor], Tomer [Hemed], Macauley [Bonne] and Andre [Green]. Then you have got your 10s like Ozzy [Erhun Oztumer] and Aiden [McGeady] – so we are strong there.

“He’s been out for a while, hasn’t he? If we need him he has to be ready.  That is why we have played him in U23 games, to start getting his fitness up. Chuks is one who loses his fitness very, very quickly if he isn’t playing.”

Aneke has played 12 times for Charlton and scored in their 3-1 home win over Stoke at the start of August.
