Ghanaian goalkeeper, Jojo Wollacott picked fresh injury which saw him sit out of Charlton Athletic’s game against Burton Albion in the English League One on Saturday.
He was pulled out of the warm up after hurting his finger at the Pirelli Stadium this afternoon.
Charlton manager Ben Garner says he hopes it’s just a sprain and not a serious injury.
The keeper will undergo a scan tonight to determine the severity of the injury.
Jojo Wollacott was the main man on Friday, making 5 crucial saves to keep Charton alive in their EFL cup tie against Stevenage.
He saved the penultimate penalty to see the team through to the next round.
