Callum Harriott’s a Charlton player so you wouldn’t expect his parent club to do anything less than ‘keep a close eye on him’ would you? Which, unsurprisingly they are the Colchester loanee!

The Sevenoaks Chronicle has carried these reports this week with interim Head Coach at Charlton Karel Fraeye watching the 21-year-old first hand recently as he watched on a Colchester lost to Coventry last weekend.

Harriott will be with the U’s until January at least but, with him impressing during his time at the Weston Homes Community Stadium, a change of boss could see the winger go from ‘surplus to requirement’ to back in the fold with Charlton?

Where his contract expires at the end of the season. Tony Humes is keen to retain Harriott for as long as possible so we’ll have to see how this plays out!

Another ‘waiting game’ being played at the moment is one with Owen Garvan.

The former Ipswich and Crystal Palace midfielder hasn’t been involved since he was injured in the defeat at Doncaster last month with his ankle injury keeping him out of the trip to Millwall on Saturday, at least.

A frustrated Colchester boss Humes has given us an update, following Garvan’s visit to an ankle specialist, he told the Gazette.

‘We’re trying to get to the bottom of it. It’s frustrating for him because he feels fine, until he tries certain movements.

‘Obviously the pace of the game determines a lot of movement and changes of direction and that’s when he has an issue.

‘We’re just trying to get to the bottom of it. He’s seeing specialists to ascertain what the problem is. He’s ok running in straight lines – it’s just when he turns. There’s obviously something in there.’
