Charlton inform officials of object thrown at Sean Clare during loss at Sheffield Wednesday

Charlton Athletic have had to inform officials of an object thrown at player Sean Clare during the loss at Sheffield Wednesday.

The 25 year old right-back, who started his senior career with the Owls, has been pictured with a vape that was chucked at him.

He also reported the incident to the assistant referee in front of the North Stand at Hillsborough nearly ten minutes from the full time whistle.

Charlton manager Ben Garner confirmed an accusation was made to the fourth official after what appeared to be a vape was launched towards the Charlton man.

“Something like that, apparently,” said Garner.

“I’ve not spoken to [Clare] or seen it but something was said to the fourth official – that something was thrown at him. We’ll look into that and hopefully the powers that be will deal with that if something has occurred.”

Tyreeq Bakinson score late in the game to give Sheffield Wednesday a victory over Charlton.

Barry Bannan produced a chance for the hosts after only two minutes, seeing his header go just wide.

The Addicks then enjoyed a good spell, with Albie Morgan sending an effort into the gloves of David Stockdale while Scott Fraser and Steven Sessegnon both put shots over.

There was another chance for the away sdie when a defensive mix-up let in Corey Blackett-Taylor, but Liam Palmer got back to clear off the line.

Bakinson threatened to force a breakthrough shortly before he found the net.

The goal coming nine minutes from time, causing wild scenes in the stands, after Windass put it a cross from the right and Bakinson powered a header home.

Windass then got on the end of a loose ball, ran into the box and squared to Sow, whose effort was blocked.

The duo combined again in stoppage time, with Sow finding Windass on the edge of the area, but he blasted over.

Owls boss Darren Moore said: “We always knew the substitutes were going to play their part because of the conditions. The heat was intense and credit to both teams for playing at that pace and tempo in that weather. The drinks breaks were vital.

“It was important to refresh things and it was the right time of the game. They will get the plaudits but I say well done to everyone today because that was not easy.

“We kept plugging away, we had to be patient, but we found a way. That’s what you have to do in games sometimes and today was one of those days.

“We had the best home record in all four divisions last season and we worked so hard to achieve that. The aim is to do the same again but we’re not going to win every game here in S6 by big margins, we have to work for everything we achieve.

“Ben Garner is doing a really good job at Charlton, you can see what he’s trying to do with the patterns and the way they play.

“Charlton are a tough nut to crack, make no mistake about that, but we found a way to win the game.”

“Very disappointed, there is a lot of frustration there,” Garner told CharltonTV. “First half, in particular, we were excellent. To come here and create as much as we did and not take the opportunities was the disappointment.

“We then switched off for one moment in the second half and it has cost us a point,” he added. “Overall, there are so many positives, so many strong individual performances and a really good collective team performance.

“To come to Hillsborough against one of the favourites to go up and play as we did, we have to take a lot of confidence moving forwards. They had seven shots, two on target, and I don’t think there will be many teams that come here and restrict them to that.”

He revealed captain Jayden Stockley, who was replaced by Miles Leaburn on 62 minutes, felt unwell ahead of Saturday’s clash.

“Jayden today was the under the weather,” explained Garner. “He wasn’t well but, being the character he is, he rolled up his sleeves and put in a really good shift for an hour or so there.

“We have created several really good opportunities for Jayden that with his quality he would normally put away – the header against Derby, the header against Accrington. We want to provide more chances for him and all of our forwards, but we are creating enough in game to win for sure.”

Looking ahead to Tuesday’s League One encounter against Plymouth Argyle, the gaffer said: “We have to take so much confidence from that performance, particularly that first half. We will recover now, we are back in tomorrow and we will start those preparations ahead of Tuesday.”
