TEAM NEWS | Five changes as Bakinson debuts


Tyreeq Bakinson will make his full Charlton debut in today's clash against Peterborough United at The Valley.

The central midfielder, who joined the Addicks on loan from Sheffield Wednesday last Friday, comes into the starting XI as one of five changes made by Head Coach Michael Appleton following last weekend's draw at Port Vale.

There is a place on the bench for fellow new signings Conor Coventry and Lewis Fiorini, while Alfie May and Chem Campbell return to the starting XI after minor injuries.

Lucas Ness and Terell Thomas also start with the Addicks expected to change shape from recent weeks.

Michael Hector isn’t involved with a hamstring injury sustained last weekend, while Corey Blackett-Taylor misses out after picking up an injury in training on Friday.

Harry Isted, who hasn’t played since late September after picking up a knee injury against Shrewsbury Town, returns to the bench.

It means the Addicks are expected to line-up with Lloyd Jones, Ness and Thomas in a back three in front of Ashley Maynard-Brewer.

Tennai Watson and Tayo Edun will likely operate as wing-backs with captain George Dobson joining Bakinson in the middle of the park.

Tyreece Campbell, May and Chem Campbell are expected to make up the front three.

Coventry, Fiorini and Isted are joined on the bench by Nathan Asiimwe, Louie Watson, Karoy Anderson and Daniel Kanu.
