He takes the place of Albie Morgan, while Steven Sessegnon misses out with knee swelling overnight.

The game comes too soon for new signing Michael Hector, who is set to play for the club's U21s during the week.

It means the Addicks are expected to lineup in a 4-3-3 formation with Sean Clare, Ryan Inniss, Lucas Ness and Matt Penney starting in a back four in front of goalkeeper Ashley Maynard-Brewer.

Kilkenny is partnered in midfield by skipper George Dobson with Scott Fraser likely to play the most advanced of the three.

Jes Rak-Sakyi, Macauley Bonne and Corey Blackett-Taylor make up the front three.

Morgan is joined on the bench by Nathan Harness, Terell Thomas, Aaron Henry, Jack Payne, Tyreece Campbell and Miles Leaburn.

Charlton: Maynard-Brewer; Clare, Inniss, Ness, Penney; Kilkenny, Dobson (c), Fraser; Rak-Sakyi, Bonne, Blackett-Taylor

Substitutes: Harness, Thomas, Henry, Morgan, Payne, Campbell, Leaburn
