Charlton are second from bottom after their 2-1 defeat at Wycombe Wanderers this afternoon.
Charlton nearly nicked a late point after the ball was scrambled off the line, but were poor for most of the game.
Wycombe came within a whisker of opening the scoring when Curtis Thompson's effort came back off the post after he had been teed up by Daryl Horgan.
But the deadlock was broken two minutes before half-time when McCleary was given plenty of time to cut inside before finding the bottom corner from just outside the box.
The second goal for the hosts finally arrived when Horgan's ball into the box was headed back across by Jordan Obita to give McCleary an easy header at the back post.
Charlton, who were largely listless, despite 59 per cent possession, had some belated hope when Sam Lavelle headed in Harry Arter's corner in stoppage time, but they could not force an equaliser.
Thomas Sandgaard tweeted: 'Today’s loss puts us in a difficult position. We have to start playing better. Toward the end we gave ourselves a chance. We need more of that every minute on the pitch.'
Louis Mendez asked Adkins about absence of DJ, Kirk, Watson and Matthews from the squad today - confirmed none were injured and it was all just selection decisions. "We’ve now got a very big squad of players from having a small squad of players."
