TEAM NEWS | Edun and McGrandles return


Tayo Edun and Conor McGrandles make their returns to the Addicks’ starting XI for this afternoon’s FA Cup first-round tie against Cray Valley PM.

Edun hasn’t played since Michael Appleton’s first game in charge against Stevenage after suffering a hamstring injury in training, while McGrandles has been out with a knee injury.

They are joined in a much-changed starting line-up by Charlton debutant Sam Walker. The 6ft 6in goalkeeper joined the Addicks in October and comes in for Ashley Maynard-Brewer, who is named as a substitute.

Charlton are likely to line-up in a 4-3-3 formation with James Abankwah, Lucas Ness, Terell Thomas and Edun starting in a back four in front of Walker.

McGrandles joins Scott Fraser, wearing the captain’s armband, and Jamaican international Karoy Anderson in midfield, behind a front three of Chem Campbell, Slobodan Tedić and Charlie Kirk.

Maynard-Brewer is joined on the bench by Nathan Asiimwe, Tennai Watson, Michael Hector, George Dobson, Louie Watson, Corey Blackett-Taylor, Miles Leaburn and Alfie May.

Charlton: Walker; Abankwah, Ness, Thomas, Edun; McGrandles, Anderson, Fraser(c); C.Campbell, Tedić, Kirk

Subs: Maynard-Brewer, Asiimwe, T.Watson, Hector, Dobson, L.Watson, Blackett-Taylor, Leaburn, May
