TEAM NEWS | Pratley and Fosu start as Bowyer makes two changes for tonight's game against Oxford United

Darren Pratley and Tariqe Fosu are set to start tonight’s game against Oxford United as Lee Bowyer has made two changes from the team that beat Barnsley on Saturday.

The pair replace Jamie Ward and Krystian Bielik who drop to the bench.

Pratley is likely to step into Bielik’s role in central defence while Fosu is expected to play in the position Ward occupied on Saturday behind the two strikers.

The Addicks will likely play Bowyer’s 4-4-2 diamond formation with Jed Steer in goal. Anfernee Dijksteel, Pratley, skipper Jason Pearce and Chris Solly in defence. Josh Cullen holding midfield with Ben Reeves and Joe Aribo ahead of him and Fosu behind the in-form strike pairing of Karlan Grant and Lyle Taylor.

The substitutes bench is the same as it was on Saturday with Bielik, who came off with cramp on Saturday, and Ward, who was substituted after 60 minutes, taking the place of starters Fosu and Pratley. 

Live commentary of the game is available on Valley Pass from 7.30pm 

Charlton: Steer; Dijksteel, Pratley, Pearce (C), Solly; Cullen, Reeves, Aribo, Fosu; Grant, Taylor.
