Chuks Aneke is set to miss the remainder of Charlton Athletic’s season with the hamstring injury he suffered in Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday.
The 29-year-old striker has had an injury-ravaged campaign.
Aneke lasted just 24 minutes against the Owls after coming on in the 57th minute.
And the former Arsenal, MK and Birmingham City frontman was unavailable for Tuesday’s 0-0 draw at Peterborough United.
“It’s not good news, I’m afraid,” manager Dean Holden told Charlton TV. “He’s picked up a significant hamstring strain – the scan confirmed that yesterday.
“If we see him this season, I’d be surprised. We’re obviously going to get around him and support him. He’s had a tough season.”
Aneke has made just one league start for the Addicks this season with his other 12 appearances in that competition coming off the bench.
He has scored three goals in 18 matches for Charlton in all competitions in the current campaign.
