The Addicks will be without Diallang Jaiyesimi (ankle), Miles Leaburn (ankle) and Ryan Inniss, who serves the final game of his two-match suspension.

Anthony Hayes revealed on Tuesday, ahead of Wednesday's Papa John's Trophy tie, that the club are still awaiting scan results to determine the severity of the injuries sustained by Mandela Egbo and Eoghan O’Connell.

Meanwhile, boyhood Charlton fan Jake Eggleton is set to feature for Coalville.


The joint lowest-ranked team left in the Emirates FA Cup, along with Alvechurch, Coalville’s run to the first round proper has been remarkable.

Having claimed victories against Shepshed Dynamo, Macclesfield FC and AFC Sudbury, the Leicestershire outfit pulled off a huge upset against National League leaders Notts County in the final qualifying round.

In terms of the league, Adam Stevens’ side currently sit fifth in the Southern Central Premier League with seven wins, two draws and three losses from their opening 12 outings.


Saturday’s game will be the first meeting between the Addicks and the Ravens.


Lewis Smith will be the man in the middle on Saturday for what will be his first fixture involving Charlton.

Smith will be assisted by James Vallance and Andy Bennett, while Robert Ablitt is the Fourth Official.

As part of the club’s annual remembrance, both teams will lay poppy wreaths ahead of kick-off. This will be followed by The Last Post and a period of silence.
