Charlton boss Pardew delighted to see defensive trio return

He said: “We were unfortunate with injuries. Ben Thatcher’s been brilliant for us and losing him was a blow.

“To also lose Diawara, Hreidarsson and Madjid; there are not many Premiership sides that can cope with losing three of their best centre-halves.

“I’m hoping all three will train this week at various points.”
