MATCH PREVIEW | Charlton v Milton Keynes Dons

Charlton face their first league game in three weeks when they host Milton Keynes Dons at The Valley on Saturday afternoon (3pm). 

The Addicks headed into the international break in superb form, winning three of their four games in October to rise to fourth in the Sky Bet League One table. 

With results going their way last weekend, they lifted themselves to third without even kicking a ball and another positive result at the weekend would see Karl Robinson’s side firmly cement their place in the play-off places.

Karl Robinson confirmed at his pre-match press conference that he had two fresh injury concerns for the game, though he did not reveal who they were. 

Jason Pearce, Harry Lennon and Lewis Page remain sidelined but are edging their way back to fitness. 

For MK Dons, they will be without Ouss Cisse and Osman Sow, who are both sidelined with long-term injuries.

Saturday will be the 14th meeting between Charlton and MK Dons. The Addicks have come out on top six times compared to the Dons’ four while there have also been three draws. 

The two sides met four times last season; twice in the league and they also contested two FA Cup matches.

He will be supported by linesmen Ian Cooper and Mark Pottage and fourth official Neil Davies.
