The Addicks will check on the fitness of Steven Sessegnon (knee) after the full-back missed Thursday’s trip to Oxfordshire, whilst Diallang Jaiyesimi (hip) and Chuks Aneke (hamstring) will also be monitored.

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

Louis Thompson (leg) and Tom Lowery (hamstring) are both doubts for the hosts, who are also expected to be without Kieron Freeman (calf), Joe Rafferty (stomach) and Jayden Reid (knee).


Portsmouth currently sit 10th in Sky Bet League One, four points adrift of the play-off places but with two games in hand on sixth-placed Peterborough United.

Danny Cowley’s side come into the contest on the back of a 2-2 draw at home to high-flying Ipswich Town on Thursday. That result means Pompey have drawn six of their last eight league games, with their last league win coming at Forest Green Rovers in October.


Charlton and Portsmouth have gone toe-to-toe on 111 previous occasions with the Addicks winning 39, Pompey 44 and the remaining 28 fixtures producing draws.

The last meeting between the two sides came in the reverse fixture at The Valley in October 2022. Ryan Inniss, Corey Blackett-Taylor and Eoghan O'Connell were all on the scoresheet as the Addicks cruised to a 3-0 victory.


Tom Reeves will oversee proceedings on Sunday. The official last refereed a Charlton fixture in September 2022 – a 3-1 defeat at Bolton Wanderers.

Reeves will be assisted by Michael Webb and Declan O’Shea, while David Rock is the Fourth Official.


The Addicks will be wearing their home kit in Hampshire.
