TEAM NEWS | Sarr to start in home clash against Shrewsbury Town

Naby Sarr starting for Charlton Athletic today in place of the injured Jason Pearce is the only change from the Addicks opening day of the season game against Sunderland.

The 6ft 5in centre back netted in the Addicks home friendly against Brighton & Hove Albion and looks set to join Patrick Bauer and Chris Solly in a back three with Mark Marshall and Lewis Page again likely to operate as wing backs.

Darren Pratley, Joe Aribo and George Lalpslie will patrol the midfield behind a front two of Karlan Grant and last week’s goalscorer Lyle Taylor.

There is a return to the squad for Anfernee Dijksteel following his summer battle with pneumonia and new signing Jed Steer is not involved having only signed yesterday.

Charlton: Phillips; Solly, Bauer, Sarr; Marshall, Pratley, Lapslie, Aribo, Page; Grant, Taylor

Substitutes: Maynard-Brewer, Dijksteel, Maloney, Morgan, Hackett-Fairchild, Ajose
