The Addicks will monitor Chuks Aneke (hamstring) after the forward pulled out in the warm-up at Portsmouth on Sunday. Richard Chin (eye), who took a ball to the face against Oxford United, will also be assessed having missed the trip to Fratton Park.

Joe Wollacott (finger) and Mandela Egbo (quad) are still sidelined, while Eoghan O’Connell (knee) has returned to training at Sparrows Lane.

Terell Thomas and Conor McGrandles both featured in the U21s’ 3-2 triumph over Hull City on Thursday.

The visitors will be without Adam Jackson, who was sent off against Ipswich Town last time out, and Lewis Montsma (knee), though fellow centre-back Joe Walsh is available again having served a one-match suspension.


Lincoln are currently sat 15th in Sky Bet League One, two places and a point above the Addicks with a game in hand.

Mark Kennedy’s Imps head to the capital on the back of a hard-fought 1-1 draw at home to high-flying Ipswich Town on Monday, in which they played the entire second half with 10 men. That point was preceded by another 1-1 draw against fifth-placed Bolton Wanderers.


Charlton and Lincoln have clashed on 17 previous occasions with the Addicks winning eight, the Imps four and the remaining five encounters resulting in draws.

The reverse fixture came in October 2022 and produced a goalless draw at Lincoln’s LNER Stadium.


James Oldham will be the man in the middle on Saturday, taking charge of his first fixture involving Charlton.

Oldham will be assisted by Damith Bandara and Daniel Bonneywell, while Kevin Howick is the Fourth Official.
