Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Ben Garner confirmed a decision would be made on Monday if Corey Blackett-Taylor would be able to be involved in Tuesday's game. The winger missed Saturday's win at Shrewsbury Town with a hip injury.

The Addicks will still be without longer-term absentees Diallang Jaiyesimi (ankle) and Miles Leaburn (ankle).

MK Dons Manager, Liam Manning, named an unchanged side for Saturday's narrow loss to Wycombe Wanderers. Manning will have midfielder Dawson Davoy available, as he returns from a three-game suspension. 


Milton Keynes finished last season third in Sky Bet League One but haven't started this season as they hoped. 

Liam Manning's side currently sit bottom of the division, having won just three of their opening 14 games. 

They come in to Tuesday's game having lost their five previous league games.


The Addicks have beaten MK Dons nine times, losing eight matchups between the two teams, with the sides sharing the points in just four of their clashes.

Charlton's first matchup against MK Dons came at The Valley in 2009, when the Addicks came out 5-1 victors. 

The two teams last met in February when Liam Manning's side won 2-0 at The Valley.


Neil Hair will referee Tuesday's game, assisted by Nicholas Cooper and Paul Evans, with Carl Brook as Fourth Official.

Hair last refereed Charlton in April this year, a 1-1 draw with AFC Wimbledon. He was also the man in the middle for the Addicks 2-1 win against Portsmouth at Fratton Park last season. 


The Addicks will be wearing their popular, home red kit for Tuesday evening's game.
