TEAM NEWS | Solly returns for Bristol Rovers clash

George Jones reports from The Valley

Chris Solly returns to Charlton’s line-up for this afternoon’s encounter against Bristol Rovers at The Valley, as Karl Robinson makes two changes.

The vice-captain has missed the Addicks’ last nine matches with a knee injury but has recovered sufficiently to take his place in the side and the captain’s armband.

He’ll line-up in his usual right-back position, with the remainder of the back four consisting of Jorge Teixeira, Patrick Bauer and Morgan Fox, all of who will operate in front of goalkeeper Dillon Phillips.

New Year’s Eve goalscorer Andrew Crofts will again anchor the midfield and in front of him will be young duo Ezri Konsa and Joe Aribo.

Jordan Botaka and Chicksen are out wide and, up front, Josh Magennis leads the line.

Charlton: Phillips, Solly, Teixeira, Bauer, Fox, Crofts, Konsa, Aribo, Chicksen, Botaka, Magennis.

Subs: Mitov, Foley, Dasilva, Ulvestad, Ajose, Ahearne-Grant, Umerah.

Bristol Rovers: Puddy, Leadbitter, Brown, Lockyer (c), Hartley, Mansell, Lawrence, Easter, Moore, Sinclair, Gaffney.

Subs: Roos, Taylor, Harrison, McChrystal, Bodin, Clarke, Colkett.
