TEAM NEWS | Taylor, Bauer and Aribo return for today's game against Blackpool

Lyle Taylor and Patrick Bauer return to the Addicks starting lineup for today’s Football For A Fiver clash at The Valley against Blackpool.

Taylor has missed three games through suspension while Bauer missed one also through suspension. The duo are joined in the starting lineup by Joe Aribo, who has been out since December with a knee injury and Josh Parker who makes his first start for the club after joining the club in January.

Anfernee Dijksteel replaces Chris Solly at right back meaning Bauer will wear the captain’s armband.

The Addicks are expected to line-up in their favoured diamond formation with Dillon Phillips in goal behind a back four of Dijksteel, Bauer, Naby Sarr and Ben Purrington. Josh Cullen will likely hold in midfield, with Ben Reeves and Aribo ahead of him. Jonny Williams will start behind the front two of Taylor and Parker.

Mark Marshall, Tariqe Fosu and Igor Vetokele move to the bench after starting last week’s draw against Southend United, while Krystian Bielik will miss the game serving the first of his two-game suspension.
