Johnnie Jackson: Charlton skipper is nearing a return to the first team

The Addicks' influential midfielder has missed the last three matches after suffering a groin injury in training.

But the international break has given Jackson the opportunity to get back to fitness and boost Charlton's bid to move clear of the relegation zone.

He wrote on Twitter: "Hopefully be fine for the weekend."

Chris Powell's side are without a win in six matches but picked up morale-boosting draws against Nottingham Forest and Blackpool in their last two outings.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
