Nathan Jones revealed the returning Chuks Aneke had come through Tuesday's substitute appearance against Lincoln City with no fresh injury concerns.

While Michael Hector (hamstring) and Miles Leaburn (hamstring) remain out, the club will assess Kayne Ramsay, who was substituted on Tuesday with a stiff hamstring, ahead of the game. 

The hosts will be without Dion Charles (knee), who is set to miss two-to-three weeks after being forced off on Tuesday. Charles joins injured duo Nathan Baxter (wrist), Ricardo Almeida Santos (calf) and Randell Williams (hamstring), as well as the suspended George Thomason, on the sidelines.


Ian Evatt’s side currently sit third in the Sky Bet League One rankings, albeit the Wanderers have three games in hand over Portsmouth who sit top of the table.

Having tasted defeat in just one of their previous 10 league encounters, Bolton extended the unbeaten streak to five games in the third tier on Tuesday, securing a 2-1 triumph at home to Wycombe Wanderers.


Charlton and Bolton have gone toe-to-toe on 96 previous occasions with the Addicks winning 29, Wanderers 47 and the remaining 20 meetings resulting in draws.

In the reverse fixture back in October, the hosts claimed a 2-0 victory in SE7 as Williams and Charles both scored inside the opening 21 minutes.


Ross Joyce will oversee proceedings this Saturday. The official has refereed 25 fixtures this season, showing 112 yellow cards and nine red cards.

Darren Williams and Steve Durnall will assist Joyce this weekend, while Richard Wigglesworth has been appointed as the fourth official.


The Addicks will be wearing their black away kit in Bolton.
