Charlton begin their 2022/23 Carabao Cup journey at The Valley on Tuesday night (7.45pm), as Queens Park Rangers travel across the capital.

The Addicks come into the first-round tie on the back of a 1-0 triumph over Derby County in front of a rocking Valley on Saturday.


Speaking in his Monday press conference, Manager Ben Garner confirmed he is set to rotate his squad for the cup clash.

The Addicks will be without Mandela Egbo (knee) and Chuks Aneke (calf), while Conor McGrandles (concussion) will be assessed having been forced off against Derby following a clash of heads.

The visitors are hoping to hand a debut to Leeds United loanee Tyler Roberts (calf), though fellow summer signings Jake Clarke-Salter (hamstring) and Taylor Richards (thigh) are both expected to miss out.


QPR picked up their first three points of the new season last time out, claiming a 3-2 victory against Middlesbrough at Loftus Road. That result was preceded by a 1-0 defeat at Blackburn Rovers on the opening day. 


Following his appointment as QPR Head Coach in June 2022, Mick Beale has added four new faces in Clarke-Salter, Kenneth Paal, Roberts and Richards.


Charlton and QPR have squared off on 70 previous occasions with the Addicks winning 25, the Rs 23 and the remaining 22 encounters resulting in draws.

The last meeting between the two sides came at The Valley in June 2020, when Darren Pratley's early strike earned the Addicks a 1-0 triumph.



Stuart Attwell will be the man in the middle on Tuesday night. The official last refereed a Charlton fixture in March 2016 - a 3-0 reverse at Sheffield Wednesday.

Attwell will be assisted by Dan Cook and Daniel Robathan, while Alan Young is the Fourth Official.
