PREVIEW | AFC Wimbledon v Charlton

Josh Magennis will be available to Karl Robinson for the first time in a month at the weekend. The striker has recovered from the ankle injury he picked up against Millwall and is likely to return to our matchday 18.

The Addicks will be without Lewis Page and Nathan Byrne, who are both suspended, while Harry Lennon, Roger Johnson, Jason Pearce, Fredrik Ulvestad and Ahmed Kashi are all injured.

AFC Wimbledon are likely to be without Will Nightingale, who has just returned to training following injury. Former Addick Dean Parrett is a doubt with an ankle problem.   

Saturday’s game will be our second meeting with AFC Wimbledon, since they reformed in 2002. In total, we have contested 17 matches against Wimbledon.

The Addicks have been victorious on four occasions, while the Dons have won nine times.

Charlton Manager Karl Robinson: “The next few weeks will be vital for us in our campaign. I know that the away end is sold out on Saturday and I know that the game is also being beamed back to The Valley, so hopefully we can put in a good performance for everyone.”

AFC Wimbledon Assistant Manager Neil Cox: “Karl has tried to change Charlton’s style. He wants them to pass it more, like his team did from where he was before. They play 4-3-3 but it is not about what they do – we’ll touch on them – but we need to worry about how we play and our own game. We want to stamp our authority onto the game.”

Carl Boyeson will take charge of Saturday’s London derby.

So far this season, he has officiated 24 games where he has brandished 79 yellow cards and two reds.

Boyeson last refereed Charlton for our match against Blackburn Rovers in September 2015.

He will be supported by linesmen Adam Bromley and John Farries and fourth official Thomas Ramsey.
