Charlton Athletic defender Patrick Bauer will be out for two months after rupturing a knee ligament.

Centre-half Bauer tore his lateral collateral ligament in Saturday's 2-0 victory at Bradford City but was not taken off the pitch.

The 25-year-old has made eight League One appearances for the Addicks this season.

"I will be sidelined for a couple of months, but will work very hard to be back stronger," he wrote on Twitter.
