Akin Famewo continues to impress on loan at Charlton Athletic and helped the Addicks record their second consecutive clean sheet at the weekend.
The 21-year-old is forming a blossoming relationship with former Crystal Palace defender Ryan Inniss at the back. Lee Bowyer’s men recorded another clean sheet as they beat Northampton Town 2-0 on Saturday.
Amongst Charlton supporters, comparisons have been made with former academy graduate Joe Gomez and the City loan export will be hungry to stake his claim for a January recall.

The German midfielder maintained the tempo and was deployed in the defensive midfield role supporting the more advanced Bradley Johnson and Lewis Holtby. He was replaced by Lewis Buckley in the second half.
