TEAM NEWS | Two changes as Edun starts


Tayo Edun will make his first league appearance in almost two months this afternoon as Charlton take on Portsmouth at Fratton Park.

The left-back, who started last weekend’s Emirates FA Cup tie against Cray Valley PM, hasn’t played in the league since the Addicks' draw with Stevenage in Michael Appleton's first game.

Tyreece Campbell also returns as Appleton makes two changes from the starting XI that won 3-2 at Wigan Athletic. Nathan Asiimwe moves to the bench while Panutche Camará faces a spell on the sidelines after limping off with a hamstring injury.

There is also a place in the league squad for Conor McGrandles, who has been out with a knee injury.

The Addicks are expected to line-up in a 4-2-3-1 formation with Tennai Watson, Michael Hector, Lloyd Jones and Edun starting in a back four in front of goalkeeper Ashley Maynard-Brewer, who was called up for the Australian national team this week.

Skipper George Dobson and Louie Watson will play in midfield with Tyreece Campbell, Alfie May and Corey Blackett-Taylor playing just behind Miles Leaburn.

Asiimwe and McGrandles are joined on the bench by Sam Walker, Lucas Ness, Terell Thomas, Conor McGrandles, Scott Fraser and Slobodan Tedić.

Charlton: Maynard-Brewer; T.Watson, Hector, Jones, Edun; Dobson (c), L.Watson; T.Campbell, May, Blackett-Taylor; Leaburn

Substitutes: Walker, Asiimwe, Ness, Thomas, McGrandles, Fraser, Tedić
