Mandela Egbo shirt

Mandela Egbo makes his first Charlton start since October in today’s home game against Burton Albion at The Valley.

Macauley Bonne also returns to the starting line-up, as Miles Leaburn misses out after picking up a knock at Bristol Rovers on Friday. Speaking to CharltonTV pre-match, Manager Dean Holden explained the injury to Leaburn wasn't major and he could be back in contention as early as Saturday, when the Addicks travel to Ipswich Town.

Holden also explained that Steven Sessegnon, who started Friday's game, isn't in the squad this afternoon as part of the club's ongoing management of his knee injury.

There is a return to the bench for Todd Kane, who appears in the matchday squad since limping off on his debut against Barnsley in January.

The changes mean the Addicks are expected to once again start in a 4-3-3 formation with Egbo, Ryan Inniss, Michael Hector and Terell Thomas in a back four in front of Ashley Maynard-Brewer.

Skipper George Dobson, Albie Morgan and Scott Fraser make up a midfield three behind attacking trio Jes Rak-Sakyi, Bonne and Tyreece Campbell.

Kane is joined on the bench by Joe Wollacott, Zach Mitchell, Aaron Henry, Gavin Kilkenny, Jack Payne  and Daniel Kanu.
