From the treatment room: Mavididi returns to Arsenal for initial hamstring treatment

Head of Medical Services Alastair Thrush has provided the latest update on the club's injuries and expected return dates ahead of the Addicks' trip to Milton Keynes on Saturday.

Arsenal loanee Stephy Mavididi has returned to the Gunners for the initial stages of treatment on his hamstring injury.

The striker picked up the problem in the second half of the Addicks’ home fixture against Oxford United on Saturday, February 3rd and the injury is expected to keep him sidelined for up to eight weeks.

As is often the case with loan players, Mavididi will spend the next couple of weeks with his parent club and, once he is back running, he will return to Charlton to conclude the final stages of his rehabilitation. 

Naby Sarr is back in training after recovering from his hamstring injury. The centre-back had been out with a strain on his right hamstring and is now in contention to be in the squad for Saturday’s trip to Milton Keynes Dons.

Jason Pearce and Lewis Page continued their comebacks for injury by playing 70 and 90 minutes respectively for Charlton’s U23s on Monday. The duo are now close to being eligible for first-team selection.

Billy Clarke has started some early strength work in the gym but his cruciate knee ligament injury will keep him out of action until pre-season.
