Football - Jackson blow for Addicks

Charlton are set to be without skipper Johnnie Jackson when they go in search of their first points of the season at Barnsley.

PA Sport Report

Jackson was passed fit to start against Middlesbrough last Saturday despite a calf injury but only lasted until half-time, and boss Chris Powell will not risk him again until he has fully recovered.

Fellow midfielder Bradley Pritchard is also missing as he completes a three-match ban for his red card on the opening day of the season.

New striker Simon Church is pushing for his first Championship start after two substitute appearances.
