Charlton manager Nigel Adkins has revealed why Ryan Inniss and Diallang Jaiyesimi were both forced from the field during the 1-0 home defeat against Peterborough.
Winger Jaiyesimi was withdrawn midway through the first-period at The Valley, with Albie Morgan taking his place on the right.
Inniss, who has recently returned from a long spell on the side-lines, limped off six minutes from time.
“Ryan Inniss, everybody saw him limping,” explained Adkins.
“I’m putting Conor Washington on. I could have maybe said just keep going Ryan, but if he’d broke down then I couldn’t have made another substitution. So, I thought we’re in the ascendancy anyway. He was limping badly, he’s jarred his knee. I just put Akin on there which I didn’t think was an issue.
“[For Jaiyesimi] – it’s early days, he’s had to come off the pitch. We’ll assess him and see where we are. He’s been in great form as well so it’s a big blow for us. Just a bit before that he was holding his leg a little bit. He couldn’t continue. Hopefully we’ve taken him off quickly enough that he doesn’t miss any more but it’s going to be a soft-tissue and we all know it will be a period of time that will rule him out for some of the games.”
