Charlton Athletic face a wait to find out the full extent of Jake Forster-Caskey’s injury.
The midfielder was brought off just before half-time during Tuesday night’s 3-1 victory over Lincoln City, a match which kept the Addicks firmly in the hunt for a play-off spot as we move towards the final weekend of the season.
The 27-year-old has been a pivotal player for Charlton this term and the prospect of going into a decisive match with Hull City without such a talisman is a daunting prospect for Adkins.
But speaking to the press, the manager says that he’ll leave the player’s fate up to the medical staff at the club.
Speaking to the South London Press, Adkins said: “I don’t know. We’ve got brilliant medical staff so we’ll get it assessed. Obviously for Jake to come off there must be something going on with his knee.
“I don’t know, it might be a soft tissue injury. I don’t know, is the answer. Obviously, he’s a warrior who wants to carry on with things. We’ll see. We’ll have to get the right diagnosis and we’ll go from there. It’s not nice when anyone comes off.”

This could be a big blow for Charlton Athletic.
The Addicks are facing a make-or-break match against Hull City this weekend and so they’ll be determined to have their star man on the pitch.
With the play-offs just around the corner it’s essential that the 27-year-old is involved, meaning that it could be an anxious wait as they run the rule over his injury.
