Mark Gower not fit enough to play after joining Charlton from Swansea City
CHARLTON Athletic say new recruit Mark Gower is "clearly not ready" for first-team action after joining on loan from Swansea City - but they hope he will be soon.
Gower joined the Addicks on loan until May last week having not featured for Swansea since early autumn.
But the experienced midfielder did not even make the bench as Charlton were beaten by Kenny Jackett's Millwall in their South London derby last Saturday.
Charlton boss Chris Powell has fingers crossed that Gower will be up to speed by the time his new club return to action after the international break against Brighton.

"Mark's trained with us a couple of times," said Powell.
"He's clearly not ready for Championship football at this present time, but he will be by then.
"We will train right and we will make sure that he will bring what he's got, which is quality.
"He's a good footballer and has got a good eye for a pass and will bring his Premiership experience and quality to us."
