MATCH PREVIEW | Charlton v Exeter City


Charlton are back in action at The Valley on Tuesday night, taking on Exeter City in Sky Bet League One (7.45pm KO BST).

The Addicks come into the clash on the back of a goalless stalemate at Lincoln City last weekend and will be hoping to go one better against the Grecians in SE7.

Ben Garner confirmed in his Monday press conference that Chuks Aneke (calf) is set to feature on Tuesday, though Diallang Jaiyesimi (ankle) remains sidelined.

The visitors will hope to welcome back captain Matt Jay following the recent birth of his first child, though Jack Sparkes picked up a knock early on at Barnsley last weekend.

Defensive duo Sam Stubbs (knee) and Cheick Diabate (foot) remain unavailable, while Jonathan Grounds, Harry Kite and Timothee Dieng will be assessed.


Exeter have enjoyed an excellent start to life back in League One and travel to the capital sat eighth, just two points adrift of the play-off places.

U18 boss Kevin Nicholson and first-team coach Jon Hill are currently leading the Grecians on a caretaker basis following former Addick Matt Taylor’s departure for Rotherham United.

The duo oversaw an impressive 2-0 triumph over fifth-place Barnsley at Oakwell on Saturday in what was their first league game in charge.


Charlton and Exeter have clashed on 32 previous occasions with the Addicks winning 15, the Grecians 11 and the remaining six encounters resulting in draws.

The last meeting between the two sides came in the EFL Cup in August 2017. Lee Holmes fired the hosts ahead at St James Park before the Addicks bagged two goals in seven second-half minutes through Billy Clarke and Regan Charles-Cook to claim a 2-1 triumph.


Craig Hicks will oversee proceedings on Tuesday night. The official last refereed a Charlton fixture in December 2021 – a 1-0 defeat at Plymouth Argyle.

Hicks will be assisted by Daniel Bonneywell and Stuart Butler, while Alex James is the Fourth Official.
