Terell Thomas (ankle) could return to the matchday squad and Holden says Scott Fraser seems okay, though the club are awaiting scan results to determine the extent of the injury sustained by Chuks Aneke (hamstring) on Wednesday.

Joe Wollacott (finger), Mandela Egbo (quad), Eoghan O’Connell (knee) and Conor McGrandles (ankle) remain sidelined.

Meanwhile, the visitors are set to be without Oliver Norburn (knee).


Peterborough travel to the capital enduring a run of five consecutive losses, three of which have come in League One.

That run means Grant McCann’s side currently sit eighth in the third tier, three points adrift of the play-off places.


Charlton and Peterborough have gone toe-to-toe on 25 previous occasions with the Addicks winning nine, Posh 10 and the remaining six encounters ending in draws.

The last meeting between the two teams came at The Valley in April 2021, when Jonson Clarke-Harris’ first-half strike earned the visitors a 1-0 win.


Darren Drysdale will control proceedings on Monday. The official last refereed a Charlton fixture in October 2021 – a 1-0 win at Sunderland.

Drysdale will be assisted by Joseph Stokes and Paul Kelly, while Adrian Waters is the Fourth Official.
