Euell out for two to three months

Jason Euell is likely to be out of action for two to three months after a shoulder injury he suffered in a reserve game at Dover Athletic. After the Jamaican international went into a slide tackle to stop the ball going out of play, a player fell on top of him and dislocated his shoulder.

In days gone by, Derek Ufton playing on with a dislocated shoulder was a regular feature of Charlton games, but Euell sensibly withdrew from the friendly fixture. Following a scan, he had an operation last Saturday. Although he can get back to fitness work fairly soon, it will be two to three months before he is back in action.

Euell was hardly likely to be in the starting line up against Sunderland and although he has his devotees among the fans (aka The Bloke Beside Me) he lost much of his sparkle last season. What the injury does do is to bring to an end hopes of a transfer deal with Birmingham City being reported to be prepared to pay £1.5m (plus free lessons in the local dialect) which would mean a £3m loss on Charlton's costliest purchase. However, he may move on in the next transfer window.
