Charlton fans may not be able to show their appreciation to Yann Kermorgant at Tuesday's game with Bournemouth after all. Perhaps that's just as well, as he would probably score at least one goal!
Cherries manager Eddie Howe admits Yann Kermorgant is facing a race against time to be in contention for the Russia versus Belgium clash. Kermorgant has been sidelined with a heel injury since bagging a hat-trick on his full debut for Cherries during their 5-0 rout of Doncaster. The Frenchman, who has missed Cherries’ past three games, has been receiving intensive treatment, both at Dean Court and at the Villa-Stuart Clinic in Rome.
Howe told the Daily Echo in relation to his £400,000 deadline day signing: “We firmly believe it is just a bruise so it is just a case of whether Yann could tolerate any pain in that area. We will, hopefully, step up his rehab in the next couple of days and see if he could be fit for Charlton.”
An ideal scenario for us would be if he came on for the last ten minutes from the bench so that the Addickted could show their appreciation but he wasn't able to score.
