Sessegnon eyes return

Steven Sessegnon is scheduled a return to action next week for the Under-23s when Charlton Athletic visit the Optima Stadium (February 9th, 2pm). 

The on loan Fulham defender suffered a hamstring injury in the Sky Bet Championship match against Swansea City in October and required surgery.

“We are hoping to get him some minutes in the Under-23s game which will be a nice boost for him,” said Holden. “He is coming to the end of his rehabilitation and it’s now about getting that aerobic fitness into him and match sharpness.”

Meanwhile, Chris Martin has suffered a significant hamstring injury and will see a specialist next week.

Holden added: “We’ve set the scans away to a specialist for a look at how we proceed but he is going to be out for quite a while unfortunately.”

The 32-year-old arrived at Ashton Gate in the summer and has made 30 appearances across all competitions, scoring four goals.

Everyone at the club wishes Chris a speedy recovery.
