MATCH PREVIEW | Charlton v Portsmouth


Charlton return to The Valley on Monday night to take on Portsmouth in Sky Bet League One (8pm KO BST).

The Addicks go into the game buoyed by a 4-2 victory against Exeter City in SE7 last time out, extending their unbeaten record on home soil this term.

Academy graduate Aaron Henry (knee) has resumed training but Ben Garner will be without Diallang Jaiyesimi (ankle) and Miles Leaburn (ankle), who suffered ligament damage during Tuesday’s triumph over Exeter City, for the visit of Pompey.

Meanwhile, the visitors will check on the fitness of Joe Rafferty (stomach), Tom Lowery (hamstring) and Jayden Reid (hamstring), though Louis Thompson (leg) is a long-term absentee.


Portsmouth currently sit fourth in the League One table, 12 points adrift of the summit but with three games in hand on each of the top three.

Danny Cowley’s side have enjoyed a very strong start to the season but travel to the capital without a win in their last three league outings.

Pompey shared a 1-1 draw with Fleetwood Town at Fratton Park last weekend.


Charlton and Portsmouth have squared off on 110 previous occasions with the Addicks winning 38, Pompey 44 and the remaining 28 encounters resulting in draws.

The last meeting between the two sides came at Fratton Park in January when Conor Washington's strike and a Clark Robertson own goal earned the Addicks victory, despite Michael Jacobs’ effort 11 minutes from time.


Dean Whitestone will be the man in the middle on Monday. The official last refereed a Charlton fixture in January 2021 - a 1-0 win at MK Dons.

Whitestone will be assisted by Mark Russell and Andrew Aylott, while Sam Purkiss is the Fourth Official.
