Krystian Bielik is set for a scan on the latest in a long line of injuries.

The defender is loaned out to Charlton, and manager Lee Bowyer confirmed that the 20-year-old would need time on the sidelines whilst medical staff determine the severity of the ailment.

Having missed Charlton’s 3-2 victory against Wycombe Wanderers, Addicks fans may have detected something was wrong, given Bielik had started the four previous games.

It was a stretch that saw the Pole impress in the Charlton back-line, and even score the winning goal in a match against Southend United.

London News Online quote Bowyer as saying:

[Bielik] need a little longer for the injuries to settle down before we can scan but they will be out for a minimum of two weeks.

Last season was a frustrating campaign for the Polish U19 star, with Bielik managing just two U23 games before injuries kept him out til December. A loan to Walsall saw an attempt to get the youngster regular playing time, but further injury problems meant Bielik never appeared for the Saddlers.
