Charlton Athletic caretaker boss Anthony Hayes is expecting Craig MacGillivray to be back available for Wednesday night’s EFL Cup tie against Brighton.
The Addicks stopper missed yesterday’s 2-1 defeat to Bristol Rovers.
Ashley Maynard-Brewer started in goal for the South London club with number one Joe Wollacott out until the new year with a broken finger.
“He was one who felt full of virus,” said Hayes when asked about MacGillivray’s absence. “I believe he is back in training today [Saturday] to do some light gym work.
“We’ll be off tomorrow [Sunday] and then back in Monday. He’ll be available hopefully for selection.”
Charlton will look to take down Premier League opposition in midweek.
Brighton have not played a competitive game since a 2-1 loss to Aston Villa on November 13.
“It’s a bit of a free hit for us,” said Hayes. “I don’t think anyone is expecting us to go and beat Brighton on Wednesday night. We’ll prepare to cause an upset.”
