On loan striker Stephy Mavididi has injured his hamstring yet again while playing for Charlton.

Mavididi was starting his fifth game for Charlton since joining them on loan, but was forced off during their 3-2 defeat to Oxford United on Saturday.

The forward injured his hamstring and was taken off in the second-half.

Speaking to South London Press about the injury after the game, Charlton manager Karl Robinson said: “I wasn’t going to take any risk.”

Mavididi tore his hamstring towards the end of last season and had his loan at Charlton cut short.

Hopefully, this isn’t a recurrence of that problem and he’ll be back as soon as possible.

He began this season on loan at Preston North End in the Championship but struggled for regular game time.

He made eleven appearances for them, but only started four times. He also failed to get on the score sheet.

Arsenal ended that loan in January and sent him to Charlton again.

He’s scored twice in five games for the Addicks, and has been playing behind the striker or on the left flank. The news will come as a massive blow to the player who will be hoping it is only a grade 1 tear rather than anything more serious
