PREVIEW | Oldham Athletic v Charlton

Oldham look set to be without striker Aaron Holloway, who has a knee injury. Ousmane Fane is struggling with a knock, while Charles Dunne and Cameron Dummigan have pelvis and hamstring injuries respectively.

Jake Forster-Caskey is a doubt for the Addicks with the ankle problem that saw him miss Saturday’s draw at AFC Wimbledon. Josh Magennis will be in the squad again, having recovered from injury.

Lewis Page returns from suspension, while Nathan Byrne has another two matches of his ban to serve.

Harry Lennon, Jason Pearce, Fredrik Ulvestad and Ahmed Kashi remain sidelined.  

Tonight’s match-up will be the 50th meeting between Charlton and Oldham. The Addicks have been victorious in 21 of the previous matches, with the Latics winning eight times. There have also been 20 draws.

The two sides shared a 1-1 draw at The Valley at the end of September.

Oldham Manager John Sheridan: “Charlton are a strong team for this league. They have some good players but they’re in the middle of the table in division one.

“They’ve got a really good manager who did a really good job at MK Dons. I like him, I think he’s an excellent manager and I know his teams have always played football.”

Charlton Manager Karl Robinson: “Oldham are a good team and John Sheridan has done a good job since he went in there. He has shored them up.

“They are aggressive, I have seen them play a lot and they can twist between a number of formations. Hopefully we can be astute in the way we prepare and we can get ourselves physically and mentally ready.”  

Mark Brown will take charge of tonight’s match.

So far this season, he has officiated five matches in the EFL where he has brandished 18 yellow cards and no reds. Last season, Brown refereed 35 games but he has never taken charge of an Addicks encounter before.

He will be supported by linesmen Chris Isherwood and Joe Clark and fourth official Anthony Moore.
