Reza Ghoochannejhad is set to be involved in Charlton Athletic’s upcoming fixture of English Championship against Brentford on Saturday after returning to training.
The Iran international forward has been out for nine weeks with an injury suffered against Nottingham Forest in last August.
“It was pleasing to see Reza Ghoochannejhad back on the bench after being out since the trip to Nottingham Forest,” said Charlton manager Guy Luzon.
“The specialist said it could take him up to 12 weeks to return, but because of his sheer hard work he’s come back after only nine.
“Reza is back and will be ready. When we have the quality of the squad we know we can play well. It is a good sign for us and we are looking forward to the game. I am confident now the player is coming back we will start getting results.”
Luzon also confirmed that the 28-year-old striker is one of among his side’s injured first-team regulars are now fit to start along with Johnnie Jackson, Simon Makienok and Stephen Henderson.
