More details on Fulham loanee’s late withdrawal from Charlton’s 2-0 win over Barnsley – South London News

Steven Sessegnon retired late from Charlton’s game against Barnsley last weekend with a knee problem.

The Fulham loanee was due to start in the 2-0 win over the Tykes. But manager Dean Holden was forced into a late, late move before kick-off with Sean Clare coming into the line-up.

Sessegnon has started 16 League One games for the south London club.

He also missed the game at Oxford United in late December due to swelling around his knee.

Holden said that South London Press: “He suffered a knee injury at Fulham last summer. That was taken care of conservatively, so there was no surgery. He was rested and rehabilitated.

“He has to deal with this injury.

“He felt it swell up the other day when he was warming up. He felt a little pain and that he couldn’t start the game.

“It literally took the lads two minutes to go to the game, right after warming up. A bit of a flash but we managed to find our way around.”
