Charlton boss provides injury update on Edun, Isted, Camara, McGrandles and Taylor ahead of Blackpool

Charlton Athletic boss Michael Appleton has provided injury updates on a host of players ahead of tomorrow’s League One clash against Blackpool.

Summer signing Tayo Edun has been missing since Appleton’s first game in charge – the 1-1 draw at Stevenage.

Keeper Harry Isted, who started every game before Tuesday’s 4-1 win at home to Exter under Appleton, has been sidelined with a major knee injury.

Ipswich loanee Panutche Camara has been missing with a foot injury since the 2-1 defeat at home to Bristol Rovers in August.

Conor McGrandles, who featured heavily under Appleton during their time together at Lincoln, has been missing since the start of the season.

And Terry Taylor went for a scan during the week after coming off with an ankle injury in last Saturday’s goalless draw at Shrewsbury.

“Tayo is going to be a good few weeks,” said Appleton.

“Harry is probably looking at more weeks instead of months, but that could be six weeks or so before we see them. 

“That’s as long as he stays pain-free from the injury, because it is a nasty one.

“With Pan, he’s definitely progressing. You have to be slow with it unfortunately with the type of injury it is. 

“The good thing is that he has a pair of boots on and has been out on the grass for a few days now. 

“He’s still a bit away, but for him, he can probably see a bit of light at the end of the tunnel now.

“The lads have had to put the reins on Conor slightly because of a bit of discomfort in the knee or the back area of the knee. It’s quite normal from what I am hearing.

“It’s something they want to settle down so he could be another couple of weeks or so. 

“With Terry, it doesn’t look a great one. It’s a bad one on the ligament. From Terry’s point of view, they haven’t put a timeline on him yet. 

“But we won’t see him for a while – that’s the long and short of him.”
