Boss looks to loan and recall in forward areas

With both DJ Campbell and Jermaine Easter suffering muscle injuries which will rule them out of Saturday's south London derby against Charlton, and Steve Morison facing a fitness test on a neck injury, Lions boss Ian Holloway is looking to strengthen his options up front.

John Marquis has been recalled from his loan spell at Northampton and Irish youngster Aiden O'Brien might also come into contention.

Ollie said: "Those two could come into the squad, but I'm also trying to bring at least one more in on loan. Even if Steve is fit for this game, he can't play against Leeds and I think he needs a bit of help up front anyway.

When he went off on Tuesday night we lost a bit of focus and I should probably have put a centre half up there in the final stages. On Saturday I'm hoping we'll be better prepared to cope with such eventualities."
