Jack Payne and Lucas Ness move to the bench, while Panutche Camara misses out with a minor foot injury.

It means the Addicks could line-up in a 3-5-2 or a 4-3-3. If the aforementioned, Hector would be part of a back three alongside Lloyd Jones and Tayo Edun in front of goalkeeper Ashley Maynard-Brewer. Karoy Anderson and skipper George Dobson, playing his 100th game for the club, would join Taylor in midfield with Nathan Asiimwe and Corey Blackett-Taylor operating as wing backs. Kanu would then partner Alfie May in a front two.

If operating a 4-3-3, Blackett-Taylor and Kanu would play either side of May, with Asiimwe dropping back into a back four.

Payne and Ness are joined on the Charlton bench by Harry Isted, Terell Thomas, Diallang Jaiyesimi, Charlie Kirk and Conor McGrandles.

Charlton: Maynard-Brewer; Asiimwe, Jones, Hector, Edun; Dobson (c), Taylor, Anderson; Kanu, May, Blackett-Taylor
