Charlton will be without Miles Leaburn (hamstring) and Kayne Ramsay (hamstring), whose injury is 'going to keep him out for the foreseeable future in terms of our next three to four games,' said Jones in his pre-Portsmouth press conference.

The visitors expect to have Brentford loanee Myles Peart-Harris (thigh) available this weekend, though Zak Swanson (groin), Regan Poole (knee), Tom McIntyre (ankle), Joe Morrell (knee), Alex Robertson (hamstring), Tom Lowery (hamstring), Ben Stevenson (knee), Terry Devlin (shoulder) and Tino Anjorin (hamstring) are all sidelined.


Table-topping Portsmouth travel to the capital six points clear of second-placed Derby County, albeit having played one more game.

John Mousinho's men are the division's form side, winning six of their last seven league fixtures, including the last four on the spin.

Pompey earned a 4-1 win at home to Reading last time out, with Paddy Lane, Marlon Pack, Callum Lang and Colby Bishop all on the scoresheet.


Charlton and Portsmouth have clashed on 113 previous occasions with the Addicks winning 40, Pompey 44 and the remaining 29 matches resulting in draws.

The spoils were shared at Fratton Park in the reverse fixture back in November 2023 as Conor McGrandles scored a stoppage-time equaliser to claim a 2-2 draw.


Andrew Kitchen will be the man in the middle on Saturday. The official has overseen 25 games so far this season, showing 72 yellow cards and one red card.

Scott Williams and Justin Amey will assist Kitchen, while Damith Bandara has been appointed as the Fourth Official.
