Bowyer says Forster-Caskey could play for Charlton this season

Charlton boss Lee Bowyer today revealed that Jake Forster-Caskey may yet play for the Addicks this season.

Days before the season had even started the popular 24-year-old midfielder suffered a knee injury which looked likely to keep him out for the entirety of the Addicks Sky Bet League One campaign.

However, speaking at his pre-AFC Wimbledon press conference at Sparrows Lane today Bowyer said: “He’s outdoors, he’s running, he’s striking balls, he’s working hard with the medical team. He’s still a little way off of us joining in with us. But for me, looking out there and seeing him training on the pitch next to us is a great sign because he’s an exceptional player and he’s been missed this season.

“You never know, we might get him back before the end of the season and he might be involved in a couple of games before the end of the season. That would be good for us and good for him.”
