Charlton attacker an injury doubt for Saturday’s home game against Portsmouth

Conor Washington is a fresh injury doubt for Charlton Athletic after coming off in Tuesday night’s 1-1 draw at Gillingham with an injury.

The Northern Ireland international was lively during the first period and only a last-ditch tackle by Jack Tucker denied him the chance to add to Elliot Lee’s opener.

But Washington made way at the break for Jonathan Leko.

“He has got kicked,” said Addicks manager Nigel Adkins. “His ankle has swollen up and he’s on crutches at the moment. Hopefully it’s just a kick and when the swelling goes down it will subside. It’s all it appears to be – a heavy kick to his ankle.”

Charlton face Portsmouth next on Saturday at The Valley.
