Speaking in Monday’s press conference, Ben Garner confirmed that Mandela Egbo is back fit and could be available for Tuesday’s game, while some unnamed players have returned to training and are nearing the end of their respective recoveries.

New recruit Terell Thomas could earn his first appearance for Charlton after the academy graduate rejoined the club last week.

Meanwhile, Udoka Godwin-Malife, Matty Stevens and Harry Boyes will be unavailable for the visitors as they recover from long-term injuries.


Forest Green currently sit 21st in League One having taken seven points from their seven games so far this season.

Ian Burchnall’s side travel to the capital on the the back of their first home win in the third-tier - a 2-1 victory over Accrington Stanley last Tuesday.



Charlton and Forest Green have only faced off on one previous occasion.

That meeting came at The Valley in August 2019 in the first round of the Carabao Cup, as the visitors won 5-3 on penalties following a goalless stalemate - with Addicks stopper Joe Wollacott the hero for Rovers that night on what was his professional debut. 


Tuesday night will be the first time the two sides have gone toe-to-toe in league action.


John Busby will take control of proceedings on Tuesday night. The official last refereed a Charlton fixture in January 2021 – a 2-0 reverse against Accrington Stanley in SE7.

Busby will be assisted by Stephen Finch and Andy Bennett, while Alan Young is the Fourth Official.


Tributes will be paid across all EFL fixtures on Tuesday around the country to Her late Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.

A period of silence will be held before the match, followed by the National Anthem, with black armbands to be worn by participants and flags to be flown at half-mast.
