From the treatment room: Charlton star to undergo exploratory key-hole surgery on right knee

Ahead of Tuesday night's clash at Shrewsbury Town, Head of Medical Services Alastair Thrush provides the latest from Sparrows Lane's treatment room

Chris Solly will undergo exploratory key-hole surgery on his right knee this week.

The full-back suffered the injury to his right knee against Blackpool in March and, despite best efforts with conservative management that included a return to running outside, he has been unable to complete the high-end movements and ballwork required of him to allow him to return to full training.

As such, the decision has been taken - in conjunction with his knee specialist - for Solly to undergo exploratory arthroscopic surgery. If the procedure is simple as hoped, the academy graduate should return in time for the start of pre-season.

Naby Sarr has integrated back into training sessions following his lateral ankle sprain. It is hoped that he could be in contention to be in the squad to face Portsmouth on Saturday.

Billy Clarke is progressing well following his ACL reconstructive surgery. He has started running on the Alter G anti-gravity treadmill at the training ground along with continuing his strength work in the gym.
