Krystian Bielik appears to have suffered yet another injury setback, with Charlton boss Lee Bowyer confirming the player is set for a scan, after missing their win at the weekend.
Bielik is on loan with the Addicks for the season, and played the full 90 minutes of the club’s first four games after he joined. After scoring the winner against Southend United though, it appears he picked up a calf injury in training, forcing him to miss the weekend match against Wycombe Wanderers.
Now he’s set for a scan, to find out the severity of the injury, along with Nicky Ajose and Darren Pratley, who both came off with hamstring issues.
“They need a little longer for the injuries to settle down before we can scan but they will be out for a minimum of two weeks,” said Bowyer.
Unfortunately this is just the latest in a series of injury problems for the Arsenal centre-back. Last season he played the first two matches of the campaign for the u23s, before suffering an injury that kept him out until December. Then he went on loan to Walsall FC, where he didn’t play a single game thanks to further injuries.
The 20-year-old is reaching the point where he really has to stay fit for the remainder of the season, or Arsenal won’t be able to rely on keeping him, and no one will want to take him on loan. However talented you are, you have to be able to play more than five games in a row without injury.
Let’s hope Bielik can shake off this latest problem.
