Charlton boss Garner reveals why Fulham loanee Steven Sessegnon was benched against Milton Keynes

Charlton boss Ben Garner says he had to rest Fulham loanee Steven Sessegnon for the visit of Milton Keynes.

The full-back was replaced by Sean Clare at left-back for the visit of League One’s bottom side before coming on for the final 17 minutes.

He recently spent two months on the sidelines with a hamstring problem but started the 2-0 home defeat from the bench.

When asked about the tweak to his starting line-up, Garner explained: “Just the volume of games for Sess. He’s done great, he really has. It would have just been a bit of a risk to start him tonight. We weren’t in a position to take that risk with the number of players we’ve got, especially in that position.

“He’s an excellent player and we saw that when he came on tonight. It’s just the volume he’s had on the back of the injury he’s had. We can’t be taking risks with players because we’ve not got the depth and numbers to cope with when players get injured.”
